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):
- Innovative applications in law, medicine, e-democracy, risk assessment, intelligent user interfaces, recommender systems
- Argumentation-based reasoners
- Systems for generating arguments from knowledge bases
- Systems for editing, presenting and judging arguments and counterarguments
- Collaborative and social systems based on argumentation
- Simulations of dialogue-based argumentation
- Argumentation-based agents and multi-agent systems
- Decision support systems based on argumentation
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We invite submission of original and unpublished work.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 www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=comma2014.
Page limits for all paper types are as follows.
- Regular track papers (max. 12 pages)
- Innovative applications track papers (max. 12 pages)
- Demonstration extended abstract (max. 2 pages)
Authors should prepare their submission following the instructions by IOS Press.
