The interplay of logic and argumentation has a long history, from ancient Aristotle’s logic to very recent formal argumentation in AI. This is an interdisciplinary research field, involving researchers from logic, philosophy, artificial intelligence, and law, etc.

The goal of the CLAR 2016 conference is to promote communication between researchers in the field of logic and argumentation within and outside China.

CLAR 2016 takes place at Xixi Campus, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, P.R. China during April 2-3, 2016. Website: http://www.xixilogic.org/events/clar2016

We invite submissions of papers or extended abstracts, both from each of the two areas of logic and argumentation, and crossing the boundaries between the two. Authors of accepted papers will get free accommodation and an invitation to submit an extended version to be considered for a special issue of JANCL (details below). Topics include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Abstract argumentation
  • Applications of logic and/or argumentation
  • Applied logic
  • Argumentation and game theory
  • Argumentation and law
  • Argumentation and linguistics
  • Argumentation and medical reasoning
  • Argumentation in AI
  • Argument mining
