Relating the ANGELIC Methodology to ASPIC+

Trevor Bench-Capon, Katie Atkinson


In this paper we relate the ANGELIC methodology for acquiring and encapsulating domain knowledge to the ASPIC+ framework for structured argumentation. In so doing we hope to facilitate the building of applications in concrete domains, especially law, by linking a successful methodology to a proven theoretical framework. We use an example from the ASPIC+ literature to illustrate the relationship, and as further illustration provide an executable program able to support argument preparation. Finally we identify several questions for future work.
