This text examines the use of collaboration technologies in the problem-solving or decision-making process. These systems are widely used in both education and in the workplace to enable virtual groups to discuss and exchange ideas on issues ranging from applied problems to theoretical debate. While some systems are text-based, the majority rely on visualization techniques to allow participants to represent their ideas in a more flexible, graphical form. The text evaluates existing systems, and looks at how the specific needs of users in both educational and corporate environments can be reflected in the design of new systems.

Considerable efforts have been made in developing and assessing educational technology to support and teach argumentation. These efforts have culminated in the form of techniques which include Intelligent Tutoring Systems and Computer Supported Collaborative Learning. Many of these techniques have been shown to be effective for specific argumentation domains. At the same time, the general design problem of how to support a learner's acquisition of argumentation skills through computer aided tools has not yet been perfected. This e-book presents a collection of current approaches in educational technologies for argumentation. Technological approaches underlying successful argumentation systems are presented, along with their relation to the success of these tools.

This volume of Computational Models of Argument focuses on the aim to develop software tools to assist users in constructing and evaluating arguments and counterarguments and/or to develop automated systems for constructing and evaluating arguments and counterarguments. Some articles provide a valuable snapshot of the leading research questions in the area of computational models of argument, others draw on the wealth of research on the philosophical questions surrounding the notions arising in argumentation, or address knowledge representation and reasoning issues emerging from modeling argumentation. They also consider appropriate models of wider rhetorical issues arising in argumentation and propose and evaluate algorithmic solutions associated with generating and judging constellations of arguments. Included are articles proposing standards for exchanging information associated with argumentation so that different systems can work together. In addition, some articles report practical working tools for computational argumentation.

The subject of argumentation has been studied since ancient times, but it has seen major innovations since the advent of the computer age. Software already exists which can create and evaluate arguments in high-stake situations, such as medical diagnosis and criminal investigation; formal systems can help us appreciate the role of the value judgments which underlie opposing positions; and it is even possible to enter into argumentative dialogues as if playing a computer game. This book presents the 28 full papers, 17 short papers and a number of system demonstrations, described in an extended abstract, from the 2012 biennial Computational Models of Argument (COMMA) conference, held in Vienna, Austria. Papers by the invited speakers Professor Trevor Bench-Capon, Professor Erik Krabbe and Professor Keith Stenning are also included. This year, for the first time, COMMA invited the submission of papers for an innovative applications track, and those which were accepted for presentation are included in this volume. Argumentation can be studied from many angles, including the artificial, natural and theoretical systems perspective.Presentations at the 2012 conference addressed the subject from these perspectives and many more.

"This volume contains the proceedings of the Nineteenth JURIX Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems (JURIX 2006). The large number of submissions shows that the interdisciplinary community is still growing and active. This volume again covers a broad range of topics. Argumentation is central to legal reasoning and therefore it is no surprise that researchers have focused on computational theories of argumentation. In this book four papers are dedicated to this topic. Typical to the legal field is the use of written knowledge sources, especially legal sources. These have been subject to AI & Law research for a long time, varying from structuring and accessing legal sources to using natural language processing techniques in order to determine the semantics of language utterances. This book contains four papers on legal sources. Central to AI and consequently to AI & Law are knowledge representation and ontologies. The latter especially are becoming more and more popular due to developments in Semantic Web research. Four papers on these topics can be read in this book. Three papers are included on applications and last but not least, the book contains four short papers on various topics."

A shared understanding of development argumentation is crucial for a wide range of development processes (such as requirements engineering, change management, eGovernment and eParticipation, public policy) and central to prevent the failure of IT and development projects. Computer-Supported Argumentation Visualization (CSAV) has been used to model and represent discourse information for about 35 years. Although modelling tools have significantly matured and continue to evolve, the visual representation of existing tools does not scale ideally with increasing model complexity. For large-scale argumentation models, existing visualization approaches from argumentation visualization are reported as being too complex for target stakeholders. This prevents them from gaining insights into the development process and may ultimately contribute to the rejection of the development result, causing severe costs for both public and private organizations. In this paper, we employ the ‘design science’ methodology to incrementally develop two interactive visual representations for argumentation visualization, incorporating best practices from information visualization research. The prototypes are implemented and evaluated in the setting of the project “Research Core Dataset”, a nation-wide project involving all major stakeholder groups of the German science system in order to develop harmonized definitions for research information. In our evaluation, both of the visual representations developed are perceived as being much better at providing insights into complex development processes with a high number of stakeholders. Ein geteiltes Verständnis der zugrundeliegenden Argumentation ist für eine Vielzahl von Entwicklungsprozessen zentral (so beispielsweise im Requirements Engineering, Change Management, eGovernment, eParticipation, und Public Policy), um den Fehlschlag der Prozessen zu verhindern.
