Argumentation is an important and exciting topic in Artificial 
Intelligence, where uses of argumentation have increased in recent years, 
throughout a variety of subdisciplines. Research activities range from 
theory to applications. The CLIMA XIV Special Session on Argumentation 
Technologies is intended to be a forum to discuss concepts, theories, 
methodologies, and applications of computational models of argumentation.

We invite submissions related to (but not limited to) one or more of the 
following topics:

* Computational models of (natural) argument
* Argumentation in artificial societies
* Argumentation in social networks
* Argumentation in multi-agent systems
* Dialogues, negotiation and dynamic aspects in argumentation
* Argument-based interaction and persuasion
* Innovative applications of computational argumentation
* Agreement technologies

Following the previous thirteen, very successful, editions, the 14th CLIMA 
will take place in Corunna, Spain, on the 16th and 17th of September 2013. 
It will be co-located with LPNMR'13.

In addition to CLIMA's regular topics and the session on Argumentation 
Technologies, this edition will feature a special session on Norms and 
Normative Multi-Agent Systems.

We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, 
which have not been accepted for publication nor are currently under 
review for another journal or conference.

LNCS Proceedings: CLIMA's Proceedings will be published by Springer as a 
volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science, and will be available in 
time for the workshop.

JLC Special Issue: After the workshop, authors of selected papers will be 
invited to extend and re-submit their work to be considered for inclusion 
in a CLIMA Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation.

Detailed information regarding CLIMA, its topics of interest, the two 
Special Sessions, formatting and submission instructions is available at 
http://centria.di.fct.unl.pt/events/climaXIV/

Important dates:
* Submission: June 6th (Abstracts) / June 10th (Papers) (Strict)
