Argumentation is concerned with reasoning in the presence of imperfect information by constructing and weighing up arguments. It is an approach for inconsistency management in which conflict is explored rather than eradicated. This form of reasoning has proved applicable to many problems in knowledge engineering that involve uncertain, incomplete or inconsistent knowledge. This paper concentrates on different issues that can be tackled by automated argumentation systems and highlights important directions in argument-oriented research in knowledge engineering.
