baner 2018

The Third Summer School on Argumentation: Computational and Linguistic Perspectives (SSA 2018) was a part of Warsaw Argumentation Week (WAW 2018), and was held from 6th to 16th September 2018 at the Warsaw University of Technology. WAW 2018 included COMMA 2018, themed COMMA workshops, and the 16th ArgDiaP conference and workshops.

It was the third event in the series of Summer Schools on Argumentation, the first Summer School on Argumentation took place at the University of Dundee in 2014 in the UK, the second took place at the University of Postdam in 2016 in Germany. The main aim of SSA 2018 was to provide attendees with a solid foundation in computational and linguistic aspects of argumentation and the emerging connections between the two.

The school was held in the days before the COMMA conference and included tutorials from the conference’s invited speakers, as well as other leading academics in argumentation and linguistics. Moreover, we organised the Student Session which consisted of contributed talks, posters and discussions with mentors. The best contributed talk was awarded a Best SSA 2018 Paper Award. There were also some social events scheduled for the duration of SSA 2018. Limited number of grants consisting of free registration to the summer school were available.
