Master topics for 2016-2017:

  • Title: Forcer l'acceptabilité dans un débat argumenté
  • Proposed by: Sylvie Doutre (IRIT), Andreas Herzig (IRIT), Nicolas Maudet (LIP6).
  • One-line description: Comment faire accepter un argument, dans le cadre d'un débat public, en raisonnant sur les arguments des autres.
  • More details: See the complete description here
  • Title: Analyzing an online debate
  • Proposed by: Gabriella Pigozzi (LAMSADE).
  • One-line description: Public participation and online debates are increasingly encouraged. The problem is that no clear procedure to analyse, understand and summarize such debates exists.
  • More details: See the complete description here

Master thesis carried out in 2016:

  • Title: Specification of semantics for abstract argumentation
  • Proposed by: Philippe Besnard, Sylvie Doutre, Dominique Longin (IRIT).
  • Done by: Van Hieu Ho
  • One-line description: Conception and implementation of a system that allows a user to specify an argumentation semantics, and that returns a logical encoding in the form of a parametrized propositional formula. When applied to a subset S of a given argumentation graph G, the instantiated formula is satisfiable if and only if S is an extension for G according to the argumentation semantics specified by the user.
  • More details: See SESAME, the resulting system
  • Title: Relation de soutien entre arguments
  • Proposed by: Sébastien Konieczny (CRIL), Srdjan Vesic (CRIL).
  • Done by: Aurélien Lucas
  • One-line description: Comment prendre en compte la relation d'attaque et la relation de soutien entre les arguments pour évaluer leurs acceptabilité ?

Master thesis carried out in 2015:

  • Title: Influence and preferences in multi-agent argumentation systems
  • Proposed by: Stefano Moretti (LAMSADE), Gabriella Pigozzi (LAMSADE).
  • Done by: Arthur Buquet
  • One-line description: Study the different influence that arguments may have on others and how preferences hold by agents can be taken into account in the aggregation of argumentation systems.
  • More details: See the complete description here
  • Title: Argumentation dans les réseaux sociaux : évaluations et controverses
  • Proposed by: Elise Bonzon (LIPADE), Sylvie Doutre (IRIT), Umberto Grandi (IRIT), Nicolas Maudet (LIP6).
  • Done by: Nicolas Shao
  • One-line description: Etudier la maximisation de la controverse d'un débat argumentatif dans le cadre des réseaux sociaux
  • More details: See the complete description here
  • Title: Aspects stratégiques et sémantiques valuées
  • Proposed by: Elise Bonzon (LIPADE), Nicolas Maudet (LIP6).
  • Done by: Julia Bessa
  • One-line description: Etudier les aspects stratégiques intervenant avec des sémantiques 'valuées'
  • More details: See the complete description here
  • Title: Collusive behaviour of self-interested agents in an argumentation framework
  • Proposed by: Stefano Moretti (LAMSADE), Gabriella Pigozzi (LAMSADE).
  • One-line description: The internship will focus on strategic interaction in argumentation systems, and in particular will be addressed to study the possibility of a collusive behaviour among self-interested agents under different debate protocols.

Master thesis carried out in 2014:

  • Title: The price of argumentation protocols
  • Proposed by: Elise Bonzon (LIPADE), Nicolas Maudet (LIP6).
  • Done by: Sofiane Malagouen
  • One-line description: Studying different argumentation protocols in terms of what loss they induce wrt a centrally merged, complete information, outcome.
  • More details: See the description here
  • Title: Fusion of argumentation systems
  • Proposed by: Sébastien Konieczny (CRIL), Srdjan Vesic (CRIL).
  • Done by: Jérôme Delobelle
  • One-line description: Do existing operators for fusion of argumentation systems satisfy the desirable properties? Are all properties from the literature desirable?
