Prof. Dr. Thomas F. Gordon of Fraunhofer FOKUS and the Universität Potsdam Institute of Computer Science and Professor Douglas Walton of the University of Windsor Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric have published Proof Burdens and Standards, in Iyad Rahwan and Guillermo R. Simari, editors, Argumentation in Artificial Intelligence, pages 239-258 (2009). Here is the abstract:
This chapter explains the role of proof burdens and standards in argumentation, illustrates them using legal procedures, and surveys the history of research on computational models of these concepts. It also presents an original computational model which aims to integrate the features of these prior systems.
