Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Exceptions constitute a great deal of autonomous process execution. In order to resolve an exception, several participants should collaborate and exchange knowledge. We believe that argumentation technologies lend themselves very well to be used in this context, both for elaborating on possible causes of exceptions, and for exchanging the result of such elaboration. We propose an open and modular multi-agent framework for handling exceptions using agent dialogues and assumption-based argumentation as the underlying logic.
