The 1st European Conference on Argumentation

June 09-12, 2015

The European Conference on Argumentation (ECA) is a new pan-European initiative launched in 2013 aiming to consolidate and advance various streaks of research into argumentation and reasoning. ECA is organised every other year at a different European location, starting with the ECA Lisbon 2015 conference hosted in Portugal by the ArgLab, Institute of Philosophy (IFILNOVA), Universidade Nova de Lisboa. While based in Europe, ECA involves and further encourages participation from argumentation scholars all over the world.


The 1st European Conference on Argumentation: Argumentation and Reasoned Action,

9-12 June 2015


The primary idea behind this first edition of the conference is that argumentation and reasoning are the main vehicles for our decisions and actions. They accompany, indeed constitute, a variety of significant social practices: from individual practical reasoning, small group decisions, deliberations of official bodies in various institutional contexts, to large-scale political and social deliberations. Argumentation is understood here as a mode of action – and not just any action, but a reasoned action, comprised of consideration of reasons (whether they are good or bad). Traditionally, argumentation has been assigned many distinct functions: epistemic, moral, conversational, etc. The aim of the conference is to explore how these functions are interrelated with the practical need for deciding on a course of action. Simply put, our chief concern is with the role argumentation and reasoning play when the question of “what to do?” is addressed.
