Fifth International Conference on Computational Models of Argument

September 9th - 12th 2014

Call for Papers


Topics include, but are not limited to:

Special Track: Innovative Applications

In addition to papers about theoretical results (in the conference's regular track), we encourage the submission of original papers about innovative applications, e.g., in law, medicine, e-democracy, risk assessment, intelligent user interfaces, recommender systems. Innovative applications papers will be assessed in an equally rigorous reviewing procedure as regular track papers.


As in the previous edition, a session will be organized for the demonstration of innovative working applications and tools. Systems of interest include (but are not limited to):

All those intending to demonstrate a system should notify the demonstrations coordinator (Federico Cerutti). Where a demonstration is not connected to a paper in a track, a two page extended abstract about the system must be submitted for review. Accepted extended abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings.

For those demonstrations that are connected to a paper in the standard track or innovative applications track, no separate statement about the demonstration should be submitted.


We invite submission of original and unpublished work. Parallel submission to journals or other conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not permitted.

Paper submission will be managed through EasyChair. Submission sites for regular, innovative applications track and extended demonstrator abstracts will open on March 1st at

Page limits for all paper types are as follows.

Authors should prepare their submission following the instructions by IOS Press.
