Most important information about our field experiment in May 2017
May 2017 at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany.
We invited all computer science students of our university via mail to talk about the question: How can the studies of computer-science be improved and the problems caused by the large number of students be solved?
Our key facts in short:
318 visitor, 137 returned at least once
47 registrations, 35 contributed at least once
235 contributed arguments
47 flagged statements
The discussion can be seenhereand a translated, english version is availablehere.
We were primarily focused on two question:
Does the dialog-based approach works for untrained users in a real-world setting?
Does a decentralized moderation system work for a dialog-based argumentation system?
We had many findings from our field experiment. The overview results are summarized inthis paper.
Next to this, our colleague developed a tool to translate real world argumentation of D-BAS into abstract argumentation frameworks. This paper can be readhere.
The resulting dump of our PostgreSQL database can be downloaded from ourserver

The archive contains three versions: the originaldataset of the discussion in German, a dataset which includes some corrections and a translated one.The translation into an abstract AF can befetched, too.
