      Argumentation Logic 

      Kakas, Antonis C.; Toni, F.; Mancarella, P. (2014)
      We propose a novel logic-based argumentation framework, called Argumentation Logic (AL), built upon a restriction of classical Propositional Logic (PL) as its underlying logic. This allows us to control the application of ...
