Call For Papers

The 11th Workshop on Argument Mining @ ACL 2024
August 15, 2024

The 11th Workshop on Argument Mining will be held on August 15, 2024, in Bangkok, Thailand, together with ACL 2024.

The Workshop on Argument Mining provides a regular forum for presenting and discussing cutting-edge research in argument mining (a.k.a argumentation mining) for academic and industry researchers. By continuing a series of ten successful previous workshops, this edition will welcome the submission of long, short, and demo papers. Also, it will feature two shared tasks and a keynote talk.


Direct paper submission deadline (OpenReview): May 17, 2024
Paper commitment from ARR: May 24, 2024
Notification of acceptance: June 17, 2024
Camera-ready papers due: July 1, 2024
Workshop: August 15, 2024


- Identification, Assessment, and Analysis of Arguments
- Identification of argument components (e.g., premises and conclusions)
- Structure analysis of arguments within and across documents
- Relation Identification between arguments and counterarguments (e.g., support and attack)
- Creation and evaluation of argument annotation schemes, relationships to linguistic and discourse annotations, (semi-) automatic argument annotation methods and tools, and creation of argumentation corpora
- Assessment of arguments for various properties (e.g., stance, clarity)
- Generation of Arguments, Multi-modal and Multi-lingual Argument Mining
- Automatic generation of arguments and their components
- Consideration of discourse goals in argument generation
- Argument mining and generation from multi-modal/multi-lingual data
- Mining and Analysis of different Genres and Domains of Arguments
- Argument mining in specific genres and domains (e.g., education, law, scientific writing)
- Analysis of unique styles within genres (e.g., short informal text, highly structured writing)
- Knowledge Integration, Information Retrieval, and Real-world Applications
- Integration of commonsense and domain knowledge into argumentation models
- Combination of information retrieval methods with argument mining
- Real-world applications, including argument web search, opinion analysis and summarization, and misinformation detection
- Ethical Considerations and Future Reflections
- Reflection on the ethical aspects and societal impact of argument-mining methods
- Reflection on the future of argument mining in light of the fast advancement of large language models (LLMs)


The organizing committee welcomes submitting long papers, short papers, and demo descriptions. Accepted papers will be presented via oral or poster presentations and included in the ACL proceedings as workshop papers.
- Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed, and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Long papers must be at most eight pages, including title, text, figures, and tables. An unlimited number of pages is allowed for references. Two additional pages are allowed for appendices, and an extra page is allowed in the final version to address reviewers’ comments.
- Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work. Please note that a short paper is not a shortened long paper. Instead, short papers should have a point that can be made in a few pages, such as a small, focused contribution, a negative result, or an interesting application nugget. Short papers must be at most four pages, including title, text, figures, and tables. An unlimited number of pages is allowed for references. One additional page is allowed for the appendix, and an extra page is allowed in the final version to address reviewers’ comments.
- Demo descriptions must be at most four pages, including title, text, examples, figures, tables, and references. A separate one-page document should be provided to the workshop organizers for demo descriptions, specifying furniture and equipment needed for the demo.

Multiple Submissions

ArgMining 2024 will not consider any paper under review in a journal or another conference or workshop at the time of submission, and submitted papers must not be submitted elsewhere during the review period.

ArgMining 2024 will also accept submissions of ARR-reviewed papers, provided that the ARR reviews and meta-reviews are available by the ARR commitment deadline (May 24). However, ArgMining 2024 will not accept direct submissions that are actively under review in ARR, or that overlap significantly ()25%) with such submissions.

Submission Format

All long, short, and demonstration submissions must follow the two-column ACL 2024 format. Authors are expected to use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word style template. Submissions must conform to the official ACL style guidelines contained in these templates. Submissions must be electronic and in PDF format.

Submission Link and Deadline For Direct Submissions

Authors have to fill in the submission form in the OpenReview system and upload a PDF of their paper before May 17, 2024, 11:59 pm UTC-12h (anywhere on earth).

For the ARR commitment process, we will provide details in our second call for papers.

Double Blind Review

ArgMining 2024 will follow the ACL policies for preserving the integrity of double-blind review for long and short paper submissions. Papers must not include authors’ names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references or links (such as GitHub) that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., “We previously showed (Smith, 1991) …” must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as “Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) …” Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Papers should not refer, for further detail, to documents that are not available to the reviewers. For example, do not omit or redact important citation information to preserve anonymity. Instead, use the third person or named reference to this work, as described above (“Smith showed” rather than “we showed”). Papers may be accompanied by a resource (software and/or data) described in the paper, but these resources should also be anonymized.
Unlike long and short papers, demo descriptions will not be anonymous. Demo descriptions should include the authors’ names and affiliations, and self-references are allowed.

ANONYMITY PERIOD (taken from the ACL call for papers in verbatim for the most part)

We follow the ACL Policies for Review and Citation. Submissions must be anonymized, but there is no anonymity period or limitation on posting or discussing non-anonymous preprints while the work is under peer review.


In order to recognize significant advancements in argument mining science and technology, ArgMining 2024 will include the Best Paper award. All papers at the workshop are eligible for the best paper award, and a selection committee consisting of prominent researchers in the fields of interest will select the award recipients.


We will be hosting two shared tasks this year:

1. Perspective Argument Retrieval
2. DialAM-2024: The First Shared Task on Dialogical Argument Mining
