ABSTRACT
A body of work centered on applications of argumentation in biomedicine, such as risk assessment and treatment planning, has led to a comprehensive view of argumentation as a form of evidential reasoning. This, in turn, has stimulated the development of a general formalization of argumentation for reasoning and decision making, which has served as the foundation for several tools for modeling and supporting medical decision making and workflow management. Later approaches have combined argumentation with adversarial models and nonmonotonic logic. The diversity of approaches to argumentation have led to the EU-funded Argumentation Services Platform with Integrated Components (ASPIC) project, which aims to develop a theoretical consensus on argumentation and to translate this consensus into practical standards and tools. This article is part of a special issue on argumentation technology.
