Abstract

Assumption-based argumentation can serve as an effective computational tool for argumentation-based epistemic and practical reasoning, as required in a number of applications. In this paper we substantiate this claim by presenting formal mappings from frameworks for epistemic and practical reasoning onto assumption-based argumentation frameworks. We also correlate these mappings to formulations of epistemic and practical reasoning in abstract argumentation terms.
