By Cristian Gratie, Adina Magda Florea (auth.), Peter McBurney, Simon Parsons, Iyad Rahwan (eds.)

This booklet constitutes the completely reviewed post-proceedings of the eighth overseas Workshop on Argumentation in Multi-Agent platforms, ArgMas 2011, held in Taipei, Taiwan in may possibly 2011 in organization with the tenth foreign convention on self reliant brokers and Multi-Agent structures (AAMAS 2011). The eight revised complete papers taken from ArgMAS 2011. additionally incorporated are five invited papers in keeping with shows on argumentation on the AAMAS 2011 major convention. All jointly the thirteen papers incorporated within the e-book supply a consultant assessment on present study on argumentation in multi-agent structures. The papers are indexed alphabetically through first writer inside 3 thematic subject matters: foundations and thought; argumentation and discussion; and applications.

Definition 5. An argument A ∈ Args is acceptable to a set N ⊆ Agents of agents with respect to a set S ⊆ Args of arguments if each argument defeating A under an agent i ∈ Agents is defeated by an argument B ∈ S under an agent j ∈ N. In contrast to acceptable arguments defined in Dungean semantics, our acceptable arguments differ from one set of agents to another. Note that acceptability does not require that each argument defeating A is defeated by an argument B ∈ S under all agents j ∈ N . The notion of admissibility is defined on the basis of conflict-freeness and acceptability.

By giving, in the PStatus theory, to this argument higher-priority than any other argument (for keeping a decision) in PStatus we ensure that the IAC argumentation theory will always decide sceptically to abandon any decision when this is no longer preferred in the module’s policy for choosing its decisions. In practice though in some applications this may be too strong to require as it may mean that decisions are abandoned too often. , by taking the cost induced by discarding this decision into account, or by requiring a weaker form of soundness where only some of the decisions are optimal throughout the operation of the agent.
