Chapter 9

Conclusions and Future Work


After having presented the theories and approaches for efficient computation of argumentation semantics, in this chapter, we conclude the book and point out six possible directions for further research.


computational complexity; divide and conquer paradigm; efficient algorithms; local dynamics; local tractability

9.1 Conclusion

This book has presented fundamental theories for efficient computation of argumentation semantics. Under admissible, complete, preferred and grounded semantics, we have proved that the local semantics could be combined to form the global semantics, of an argumentation framework. The idea of local computation and global computation is somewhat similar to that of the ...
