Online Handbook of Argumentation for AI
The Online Handbook of Argumentation for AI (OHAAI) is a curation of selected peer-reviewed papers describing PhD work on Argumentation in AI, published as an annual online Open Access handbook. Previously, formal theories of argument and argument interaction have been proposed and studied, and this has led to the more recent study of computational models of argument. Argumentation, as a field within artificial intelligence (AI), is highly relevant for researchers interested in symbolic representations of knowledge and defeasible reasoning. Thus, OHAAI is designed to serve as a research hub to keep track of the latest and upcoming PhD-driven research on the theory and application of argumentation in all areas related to AI. The handbook’s goals are to:
The papers in the OHAAI volumes are selected following a back-and-forth peer-review process undertaken by the editors of OHAAI, with a commitment to support authors to maximise their opportunity for publication. Each volume thus presents a strong representation of the contemporary state of the art research of argumentation in AI that has been strictly undertaken during PhD studies.
By contributing to OHAAI, you will have the opportunity to get your work published in a citable peer-reviewed venue. If you are just at the beginning of your PhD studies then publishing in OHAAI will help you start building your research profile from an early stage. If you are still doing your PhD and have already published some of your work or if you have recently submitted your PhD thesis, contributing to OHAAI will help boost your research profile even further, providing peers with a concise understanding of the work you have conducted during your PhD. OHAAI is a continuous annual project, which means you will be able to submit updates to your work each year in order to keep the research community in touch with the progress of your PhD.
We seek a short paper (extended abstract ) summary of your PhD project, with clear indication of how your work is relevant in contributing to emerging theoretical techniques and/or applications of argumentation for AI. We encourage work that aims to link AI to other areas using argumentation, inspired from disciplines such as, but not limited to: Philosophy, Psychology, Cognitive Science, Law, Health, Sociology, Communication Science, and Economics.

We are happy to inform you that this year, the student program of SSA 2022 (5th Summer School on Argumentation: Explainability Perspective co-located with the 9th International Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA 2022)) is co-organized by OHAAI. OHAAI is responsible for the abstracts submitted in SSA 2022 and will publish these works in its 3rd Volume.
This year OHAAI will be linked with the 5th Summer School on Argumentation (SSA 2022). For this reason, the paper submission deadline will be aligned with the SSA registration deadline. The OHAAI reviewing process will start two weeks later, giving the authors time for updating their submissions according to the feedback received during the Summer School.
The papers will need to be submitted in PDF and will need to follow the LateX or MS Word templates provided in the links below.
The papers also need to follow an extended-abstract type of structure with a minimum of 2pg and maximum length of 4pg (+1pg for references), where authors present:
Federico Castagna, firstname.lastname@example.org
Francesca Mosca, email@example.com
Jack Mumford, firstname.lastname@example.org
Stefan Sarkadi, email@example.com
Andreas Xydis, firstname.lastname@example.org
