A pilot to explore the potential of argument analysis experiments on the net. Our objectives are to: (i) investigate how complex debates of topical interest can be more effectively communicated, navigated and analysed when mapped in software tools; (ii) advance the state of the art in practical argumentation support tools; (iii) evaluate the software tools analytically and empirically
Players participate in Argumentation Experiments, working to an agreed schedule and from common sources. Through systematic comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of approaches, we aim to clarify how approaches can be improved.
