Formal Methods in Argument Reconstruction
GAP.8 Workshop, Konstanz, 20-21 September 2012

The purpose of this international workshop is to bring together
researchers who apply formal methods, widely understood, to natural
language argumentation in order to provide a reconstruction which can
provide the basis for an evaluation.
A related objective is to make the state of the art accessible to
audiences who predominantly reconstruct natural language argumentation
with more traditional formal or informal tools.
