Welcome to Parmenides

The Parmenides e-participation forum structures proposals for political action, to allow the results to be computationally analysed.

Welcome to the Parmenides e-participation forum. Parmenides is a system for deliberative democracy that allows the government to present policy proposals to the public (or a specific focus group) and lets the public submit their opinion on the policy and it's justification.

Parmenides exploits two methods of argument representation; Argumentation schemes, to structure policy proposals; and Argumentation Frameworks, to diagramatically analyse the opinions submitted by users.
