Belief change and argumentation theory both belong to the wide
field of knowledge representation, but their focal points are
different. Argumentation theory provides frameworks for reasoning
by setting up formal structures that allow the processing and
evaluation of arguments for or against a certain option. Here, focus
is put on dialectical deliberation and on finding justifications for
decisions. Belief change theory has its focus on the adjustments of
previously held beliefs that are needed in such processes. Recently,
some studies and discussions on the interrelations between belief
change and argumentation theory have been undertaken: see the Dagstuhl
seminar [1]. However, the interrelations between the two fields are
still for the most part unexplored.

Therefore the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence invites
contributions to a special issue on Belief Change and Argumentation
Theory.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

   - Foundational and methodological issues that are common to both areas.

   - The use of methods and tools from belief change theory in
     argumentation theory, for instance to determine how argument frames
     should be changed in response to new information.

   - The use of methods and tools from argumentation theory in belief
     change theory, for instance in discussions on the plausibility of
     different patterns of belief change.

   - Systems and frameworks that contain elements from both belief change
     and argumentation.

   - Practical applications of argumentation or belief revision in
     multi-agent systems or knowledge representation.
