A body of work centered on applications of argumentation in biomedicine, such as risk assessment and treatment planning, has led to a comprehensive view of argumentation as a form of evidential reasoning. This, in turn, has stimulated the development of a general formalization of argumentation for reasoning and decisionmaking, which has served as the foundation for several tools for modeling and supporting medical decisionmaking and workflow management. Later approaches have combined argumentation with adversarial modelsand nonmonotonic logic. The diversity of approaches to argumentation have led to the EU-funded ArgumentationServices Platform with Integrated Components (ASPIC) project, which aims to develop a theoretical consensuson argumentation and to translate this consensus into practical standards and tools. This article is part of aspecial issue on argumentation technology.
