Postdoctoral position "Dynamics of Argumentation", Luxembourg


The Dynamics of Argumentation (DYNAR):

   The project aims to examine the dynamic aspects related to formal
   argumentation. In particular, the aim is to construct a theory on
   issues like how to do incremental updates without the need for
   global recomputation, how to make (minimal) changes to the
   argumentation network in order to change the status of a particular
   argument, and how sensitive the various argumentation semantics
   are regarding the global effects of relatively small updates.
   Apart from that, the project also aims to study the question of
   when it is rational for an agent to accept an argument given to
   it, and aims to construct a formal model for simulating how
   knowledge, expressed in the form of argumentation, is spread in
   a social setting where the individual agents have to protect
   themselves from various forms of dishonesty of other agents.

   The project is a collaboration between the University of Luxembourg
   (UNI.LU), the Institute of Research in Informatics of Toulouse
   (IRIT) and the Center of Research in Informatics of Lens (CRIL).
   The main working place of the postdoc position will be Luxembourg.



- A PhD in Artificial Intelligence or a related field,
   with a background in formal logic.
