25 years since Dung's paper on abstract argumentation


The growing research field of abstract argumentation was originated in 1995 by Phan Minh Dung's seminal paper "On the Acceptability of Arguments and Its Fundamental Role in Nonmonotonic Reasoning, Logic Programming, and n-Person Games" whose profound impact on the development of computational argumentation research and of AI research in general is universally recognized, as also witnessed by the recent AIJ Classic Paper Award announced at IJCAI 2018.

The Argument & Computation journal issued a special issue in 2020 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this fundamental contribution.

The aim of the special issue was to provide an up-to-date view of the vitality and richness of Dung's theory: high-quality submissions presenting novel contributions on both theoretical and practical developments, applications and perspectives of abstract argumentation frameworks are welcome.
