 Arguments vary in strength. The strength of an argument is affected by e.g. the plausibility of its premises, the nature of the link between its premises and conclusion, and the prior acceptability of the conclusion.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts from the fields of artificial intelligence, philosophy, logic, and argumentation theory to discuss questions related to the strength of arguments. Such questions include:

    Which factors influence the strength of an argument?
    What are the pros and cons of different formal representations of argument strength?
    How to formally model qualifiers on the conclusions of arguments?
    How does argument strength propagate when inferences are chained?
    How do arguments accrue?
    Can weaker arguments defeat and/or defend stronger arguments?
    When do more specific arguments defeat more general arguments and vice versa?
    How do formal and informal approaches to argument strength relate?
    How do preferences assigned to premises influence the evaluation of arguments?
