The 3rd International Conference on Logic and Argumentation (CLAR 2020)

6-9 April 2020, Hangzhou, China

 

The 3rd International Conference on Logic and Argumentation (CLAR 2020) invites interdisciplinary contributions from logic, artificial intelligence, philosophy, computer science, linguistics, law, and other areas studying logic and formal argumentation.

CLAR 2020 will be held in Hangzhou, 6-9 April 2020, as part of the Zhejiang Conferences on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (ZJULogAI 2020). With a special focus on “methods and tools for explainable AI”, a core objective of ZJULogAI is to present the latest developments and progress made on the crucial question of how to make AI more transparent, trustworthy and accountable, both in China as well as in the rest of the world. All participants to CLAR 2020 have access to all other events of ZJULogAI as well.

Proceedings with accepted submissions will be available during the conference, and extended versions will be published after the conference in a special issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation.
