The IMPACT Project — first two days

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am working in Amsterdam for the next three months on setting up a research project at the Leibniz Center for Law. The focus here is to develop information extract of textual debates (using GATE) and a tool for inputting debates in a structured manner that can be further processed for reasoning.
The official IMPACT Project information on CORDIS.
As part of my contribution, I have two draft papers, written in the spring and summer of 2009, which will be further developed at Leibniz: From Arguments in Natural Language to Argumentation Frameworks and Multi-modal Multi-threaded Online Forums. While these are early drafts of papers and not for wider circulation, they give a good indication of the line of thinking and of some of the key ideas we will be pursuing. Comments about these works are very welcome.
