Fourth International Conference on Logic and Argumentation (CLAR 2021)
20-22 October 2021, Hangzhou, China
Hybrid (physical or virtual attendance)
The 4th International Conference on Logic and Argumentation (CLAR 2021) invites 
contributions from logic, artificial intelligence, philosophy, computer science,
linguistics, law, and other areas studying logic and formal argumentation.

CLAR 2021 will be held in Hangzhou, 20-22 October 2021 at Zhejiang University 
City College. Due to the uncertainties of the epidemiological situation, the 
conference will be held in a HYBRID format (virtual and physical attendance 
both accepted), and we encourage physical participation if possible.

Papers accepted to CLAR 2021 will be published as Springer LNAI proceedings, 
and will be available online during the conference. Authors of selected papers 
will be invited to submit an extended version to a journal special issue after 
the conference.

More information about CLAR 2021 can be found at the conference website: 

The CLAR 2021 conference will highlight recent advances in logic and 
argumentation and foster interaction between these areas within and outside 
China. Previous conferences can be accessed via:
