Call For Papers

** Call for Papers for a special issue on Argumentation on the Web **

The Journal of Web Semantics invites submissions for a special issue on Argumentation on the Web, to be edited by Antonis Bikakis, Giorgos Flouris, Dimitris Plexousakis, Nico Potyka and Steffen Staab.
Submissions are due by 1st June 2022.

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in applying argumentation technology in web applications, leading to several active areas of research. One such area is the use of argumentation technology to explain the decisions of black-box models. Typical web applications are explanations for services like product recommendation or review aggregation. Another area of increasing interest is argumentation mining, where the goal is to automatically extract and analyse arguments from natural language documents. Typical web applications are the automatic analysis of online discussions and a more fine-grained analysis of online reviews based on argumentative structure. Argumentation technology is also potentially interesting to make dialogue systems on the web more engaging. Finally, representations of arguments on the Web and in knowledge graphs, argumentative relationships in and among documents or data may pave the way for novel applications representing citizen or scientific dialogue.

We invite articles with novel applications of argumentation on the web, new algorithms and concepts or novel results that improve the understanding of existing approaches in this context. Topics include but are not limited to:

- applications and case-studies of argumentation technology on the web
- argument mining
- argumentation-based explanation
- argumentation knowledge graphs
- argumentation in multi-agent systems
- computational persuasion
- dialogical argumentation
- evaluating the strength of arguments
- generating web arguments
- managing web arguments
- novel argumentation formalisms or semantics (with emphasis on those suitable for use in the web)
- representing web arguments
- representing uncertainty about arguments
- system descriptions and user studies
- visualization of arguments
