    David Botting (forthcoming). Inferences and Illocutions. Argument and Computation:1-19.
    In several papers Budzynska and Reed have argued that inferences should be ‘anchored’ to relations between utterances rather than to utterances themselves; then, by appeal to what they call ‘dialogue glue', these relations are somehow reified as ‘implicit’ speech-acts. In this paper I will argue that this is a mistake caused by confusion over different ways an illocution can be relational and that there can be no such thing as implicit speech-acts as they describe them, and so the speech-act that (...)

    E. Hadjisoteriou & A. Kakas (forthcoming). Reasoning About Actions and Change in Argumentation. Argument and Computation:1-27.
    This paper studies how logic-based reasoning about actions and change with its problems of temporal projection and qualification can be formalised in terms of argumentation. In particular, we extend earlier work of translating the language for RAC into a logic-based argumentation framework, by introducing new types of arguments for backward persistence and persistence from observations. This forms a conservative extension of the language that gives a semantic meaning to domains that cannot be interpreted under thus addressing further the frame and (...)

  3. Hiroyuki Kido & Federico Cerutti (forthcoming). Formal Reconciliatory Dialogue Based on Shift From Forward to Backward Deliberation†. Argument and Computation:1-18.
    Desire conflicts arise in several real-world contexts. In this paper, we propose a mixed deliberation dialogue for reconciliation. A mixed deliberation dialogue is defined as a combination of forward and backward deliberation dialogues with respective goals which are subordinate and superordinate desires of a given desire. This research and the introduction of mixed deliberation dialogue have been motivated by Kowalski and Toni's reconciliatory scenario. We show that an instantiation of a mixed deliberation dialogue implements key parts of Kowalski and Toni's (...)

    Douglas Walton & Fabrizio Macagno (forthcoming). A Classification System for Argumentation Schemes. Argument and Computation:1-27.
    This paper explains the importance of classifying argumentation schemes, and outlines how schemes are being used in current research in artificial intelligence and computational linguistics on argument mining. It provides a survey of the literature on scheme classification. What are so far generally taken to represent a set of the most widely useful defeasible argumentation schemes are surveyed and explained systematically, including some that are difficult to classify. A new classification system covering these centrally important schemes is built.
