Student Session


Registered students have the possibility to participate in the student program of SSA 2020, which consists of digital poster sessions, where participants can present their work and discuss it with the lecturers and keynote speakers, and a mentoring session, where specific topics can be discussed. The student session will take place on on 8th September.

Participants in the student program have to submit a thesis abstract before the school. All abstracts will be reviewed. In case of acceptance the students have to present their work as a digital poster in the poster session. The best poster will be awarded a "best poster award".

The student program is an important part of the summer school, but participation in the student program is not mandatory for attending the summer school and based on acceptance of a thesis abstract.

Submission of abstracts

Participants in the student program have to submit a thesis abstract to the school before or on August 16, 2020 (Hawaiian time). The abstract should not exceed 2 pages in length (not including references) and follow the formatting instructions of COMMA'20.

The abstract should give an overview of the PhD project of the student. For students at an early stage of the PhD, the abstract can outline an objective and motivation of the research, while more advanced PhD students can also report on previous results, which can be published elsewhere. We welcome contributions from all disciplines (both directly and indirectly) related to argumentation, including e.g. non-monotonic reasoning, logic programming, linguistics, natural language processing, philosophy and psychology, just to mention a few of them. The student should also be the sole author of the abstract, but advisors can be mentioned in an acknowledgements section.

The abstract must be submitted to EasyChair in PDF format not later than August 16, 2020.
