The Magtalo (Multiagent Argumentation, Logic, and Opinion) system is a prototype environment for debate that supports naturalistic dialogue. Magtalo demonstrates how to harness dialogue protocols to achieve two objectives: First, Magtalo supports flexible intuitive interaction with data in complex debate domains to facilitate understanding and assimilation. Second, it supports structured knowledge elicitation, which enables the expansion of the those domains' resources. This article is part of a special issue on argumentation technology.
