Mr John Lawrence


My research interests lie in computational models of argument, specifically the modelling of argument structure and dialogue protocols. I have worked on several tools allowing users to analyse, structure and take part in dialogues with both other people and artificial agents.

Skills: Computational Models of Argument and Dialogue, Dialogue Protocol Design, Programming, Interface Design

  • A software tool for facilitating focus groups

    Coordinating focus groups with clients, users and other stakeholders can offer valuable insights and can be a key selling point for practices. Running them effectively however can pose challenges:

  • COMMA 2014
    Fifth International Conference on Computational Models of Argument

    A Scientific Meeting (conference, seminar etc.)

    The International Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA 2014), the regular forum for presentation and exchange of the latest research results related to computational aspects of argumentation, was held in the Scottish Highlands 9th-12th September, organised by the Universities of Aberdeen and Dundee.
