Following our work delivering tutorials at IJCAI2016, ACL2016 and ESSLLI2017, Chris Reed and Katarzyna Budzynska are this year delivering a tutorial at ACL2019 in Florence on Sunday, 28 July.

We will be focusing on argument mining, and given that it is such a fast moving area, the way in which the field has been shaped by advances over the past three years.

The tutorial has its own dedicated website at arg.tech/acl2019tut

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the tutors — and we hope to see you in Florence in August.
