Special Issue on Belief Change and Argumentation Theory

Jürgen Dix, Sven Ove Hansson, Gabriele Kern-Isberner, Guillermo Simari

July 2013

Belief change and argumentation theory both belong to the wide field of knowledge representation, but their focal points are different. Argumentation theory provides frameworks for reasoning by setting up formal structures that allow the processing and evaluation of arguments for or against a certain option. Here, focus is put on dialectical deliberation and on finding justifications for decisions. Belief change theory has its focus on the adjustments of previously held beliefs that are needed in such processes. Recently, some studies and discussions on the interrelations between belief change and argumentation theory have been undertaken: see the Dagstuhl seminar. However, the interrelations between the two fields are still for the most part unexplored.

Therefore the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence invites contributions to a special issue on Belief Change and Argumentation Theory.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Foundational and methodological issues that are common to both areas.

  • The use of methods and tools from belief change theory in argumentation theory, for instance to determine how argument frames should be changed in response to new information.

  • The use of methods and tools from argumentation theory in belief change theory, for instance in discussions on the plausibility of different patterns of belief change.

  • Systems and frameworks that contain elements from both belief change and argumentation.

  • Practical applications of argumentation or belief revision in multi-agent systems or knowledge representation.
