KI 2019 will have a special focus on “AI methods for Argumentation” and we especially invite contributions that use methods from all areas of AI to understand, formalize or generate argument structures in natural language. The special focus will be organized in cooperation with the DFG funded priority program “RATIO: Robust Argumentation Machines”. 

Besides this special focus, KI 2019 invites original research and application papers on all aspects of AI research, including but not limited to the following: 

  • Agent-based and multi-agent systems 
  • AI applications and innovations
  • Argumentation in AI
  • Belief change
  • Cognitive modelling
  • AI and psychology
  • Commonsense reasoning
