The goal of this research was to identify the suitable technologies for enacting the World Wide Argument Web (WWAW) in the context of newly arisen Pragmatic Web paradigm. The vision is to develop the WWAW based on the Argument Interchange Format (AIF) ontology. On the one hand, we propose concept maps for presenting AIF-based arguments to the human agents. On the other hand, the argumentation schemes are formalized as planning operators in order to provide software agents with the ability to build argumentation plans.
