ACAI Summer School on Computational Models of Argument, 1-5 July 2013, London (U.K.)

In odd-numbered years, the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial 
Intelligence sponsors a specialised course in Artificial Intelligence, called 
Advanced Course on AI (ACAI).

The ACAI Summer School 2013 (ACAI 2013) will be held at King's College London, 
UK, from the 1st July to the 5th July 2013 and is on the topic of Argumentation 
in Artificial Intelligence.

Computational models of argument, and the development of agreement 
technologies, is becoming an important area in artificial intelligence. The aim 
of the summer school is to provide the attendees with a solid grounding in the 
basic ideas in formal modelling of argumentation, dialogue, and negotiation. 
Furthermore, there will be a programme of lectures on application areas, lab 
sessions on software developments, and lectures linking with areas in AI and 

ACAI 2013 will be co-located and run in parallel with the European Agent 
Systems Summer School 2013, giving students the opportunity to interact with a 
wide variety of peers.

More information, including a preliminary programme, and how to apply to join 
the summer school, is available on the website.
