Decision making processes, be it at the societal or at the personal level, eventually come to a point where one side will challenge the other with a why-question, which is a prompt to justify one’s stance.
Thus, technologies for argument mining and argumentation processing are maturing at a rapid
pace, giving rise for the first time to argument retrieval. We invite to participate in the first lab on Argument Retrieval at CLEF 2020 featuring two subtasks:
(1) retrieval in a focused argument collection to support argumentative conversations;
(2) retrieval in a generic web crawl to answer comparative questions with argumentative results.
