This article identifies an important role that argumentation should play in the development of the Semantic Web vision. It proposes the ArgSCIFF architecture, which supports high-level reasoning and argumentation-driven interaction among Semantic Web services. ArgSCIFF is based on a concrete, implemented operational model. The authors demonstrate the architecture's ideas and functioning by way of a running example. This article is part of a special issue on argumentation technology.
