Invited Speakers

Leila Amgoud Leila Amgoud is Research Director (DR1) at CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), Deputy Director of IRIT (Toulouse Institute of Computer Science) since January 2021, Member of the ADRIA team at IRIT, EurAI Fellow since 2014, and PI of an ANITI chair on argumentation. She obtained a Ph.D and HdR in Artificial Intelligence from Paul Sabatier University respectively in July 1999 and June 2009. Before joining CNRS in 2001, she was a postdoctoral researcher at the university of Liverpool, UK. Her research interests lie within the broad area of knowledge representation and reasoning, in particular, Argumentation theory, Non-monotonic reasoning, Analogical reasoning, Practical reasoning, Decision making, Negotiation, Measuring inconsistency, Trust modelling, and Ranking systems.

Ulrike Hahn Ulrike Hahn is professor of psychology at the School of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck, University of London, and she is Director of the Centre for Cognition, Computation and Modelling. She was awarded the Cognitive Section Prize by the British Psychological Society (December 2011), the Kerstin Hesselgren Professorship by the Swedish Research Council (December 2013), the Anneliese Maier Research Award by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (December 2014). Ulrike is a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science (December 2015) and of the German National Academy of Sciences, Leopoldina (December 2015). She received a Honorary Doctorate of the Lund University in Sweden (December 2017), the Computational Modeling Prize: Applied Cognition from the Cognitive Science Society (December 2018), and she is Corresponding member of the Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften (May 2022). Her research interests are human rationality: judgment, decision-making, and the rationality of everyday argument; social networks; and language.

Serena Villata Serena Villata is a senior researcher (Directrice de recherche) in computer science at the CNRS and pursues her research at the I3S labatory where she is a member of the joint Inria-CNRS-UCA Wimmics team. Her research area is Artificial Intelligence (AI), and her current work focuses on computational argumentation considering both reasoning on computational models of argument and mining natural arguments from text (argument mining). She is particularly interested in multidisciplinary applications of argumentation to the legal domain, to medical texts, to political debates and to social networks. In November 2021, she was awarded with the Prix Inria – Académie des sciences jeunes chercheurs et jeunes chercheuses. Since July 2019, Serena has been awarded with a Chair in Artificial Intelligence at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Artificial Intelligence 3IA Côte d’Azur on “Artificial Argumentation for Humans”. Since January 2021, she is the Deputy Scientific Director of the 3IA Côte d'Azur Institute. Since December 2019, she is a member of the National Pilot Committee for Digital Ethics (CNPEN), and since October 2020 she is a member of the Scientific and Ethical Committee of the Cancer Data Platform of the Institut National du Cancer. Serena is part of the Steering Committee of COMMA, JURIX (Foundation for Legal Knowledge Based Systems) and ECA (European Conference on Argumentation). Since September 2021, she is a member of the IAAIL executive committee (2022-2023).
