2nd European Conference on Argumentation

Colloque / Congrès / Forum Public-cible: Académique ou spécialiste
The European Conference on Argumentation (ECA) is a pan-European initiative launched in 2013 aiming to consolidate and advance various streaks of research into argumentation and reasoning. ECA’s chief goal is to organise on a biannual basis a major conference that provides an opportunity for exchanging research results and networking in all areas related to the study of argumentation: philosophy, communication, linguistics, discourse analysis, computer science, psychology, cognitive studies, legal theory, etc. We are dedicated to work in synergy with other major events – such as the conferences organised by the International Society for the Study of Argumentation and the Ontario Society for the Study of Argumentation – by following their interdisciplinary spirit and avoiding schedule overlaps. As a distinguishing feature, ECA events offer a mix of plenary keynote sessions, thematic symposia, long papers with assigned commentators, and regular papers.
ECA is organised every other year at a different European location. The 1st edition was hosted in 2015 in Lisbon by the ArgLab, Institute of Philosophy (IFILNOVA), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (New University of Lisbon). This 2nd edition is hosted by Pragmatics Lab of the English Department at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. While based in Europe, ECA involves and encourages participation from argumentation scholars all over the world.

Each meeting results in the publication of conference proceedings and may in addition lead to a dedicated selection of papers as a special journal issue or a collective volume.
