Assumption-based Argumentation for Multiagent Systems

Had my paper ('Assumption-based Argumentation for Multiagent Systems', 2009, Adil Hussain, Francesca Toni) accepted at the 'Computational Uses of Argumentation' workshop to take place as part of the AAAI 2009 Fall Symposium Series, 4-7th November 2009, Washington DC. Need to make a few small changes before submitting the second/final version, as requested by the reviewers.

Note: In future work, building upon and taking this paper further, I need to think about and work on the following:
1) Agents having incorrect, out of date or inconsistent beliefs, as well as inconsistent beliefs.
2) Allowing general inference rules in the private belief base of agents, and not just facts.

58, Assumption-Based Argumentation

This chapter ('Assumption-Based Argumentation' by Phan Minh Dung, Robert A Kowalski, Francesca Toni) written for the book 'Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence' (2009) contains the representation of an argument as a tree, which I adapt in my paper submitted to 'Computational Uses of Argumentation'. The trees in this paper display the structural relationships between claims and assumptions, justified by the inference rules.

56, Negotiating Socially Optimal Allocations of Resources

Can't believe I haven't blogged this paper ('Negotiating Socially Optimal Allocations of Resources', 2006, by Ulle Endriss et al) til now. Fundamental!
