The European Conference on Argumentation (ECA) is a pan-European biennial initiative aiming to consolidate and advance research on argumentation. After two successful editions, in Lisbon in 2015 and in Fribourg in 2017, ECA will be hosted in 2019 by the University of Groningen, in Groningen, The Netherlands.

The special theme of this conference is Reason to Dissent. Dissent may spoil the cooperation and reciprocity required for reason-based deliberation and decision making. But then, dissent produces the kind of competition and criticism required for reliable and robust outcomes. How much dissent does an argumentative practice require? What kinds of dissent should we promote, or discourage? How to deal with dissent virtuously? How to exploit dissent in artificial arguers? How has dissent been conceptualized in the history of rhetoric, dialectic and logic?

We have reason to dissent, and we do reason to dissent – also in the study of argumentation. In the interdisciplinary field of argumentation studies, some scholars emphasise the importance of studying argumentation in natural settings. Others stress the value of theoretical models of argumentation, and start from theories on logic or probability or from dialectical systems. Yet others highlight the urgency of developing artificial systems of argumentation, like software support, automated reasoning or argument mining. The conference aims at exploiting this plurality for the purpose of a high quality exchange of research results.

Submissions are not required to focus on the special theme Reason to Dissent. We invite submissions on argumentation from various sub disciplines, taking various approaches and dealing with various themes.
