CMNA 2005 - Invited talk

Parallel Dynamic Argument Structures

Professor Theodore Scaltsas, Department of Philosophy, University of Edinburgh.


An approach has been used in creating an argument tree that combines argument maps and hypertext in an effort to help not only the visual type of user, but also the propositionally oriented users. Both, text and argument map, are displayed following simultaneously the browsing interactions of the user. In addition, the argument map developed can reduce dynamically the complexity of the graph. It can track any argument that the user focuses on and display only the specific parts of the argument tree needed for the visual representation of the focused argument.
