We address the problem of explaining Boolean Conjunctive Query (BCQ) failure in the presence of inconsistency within the Ontology-Based Data Access (OBDA) setting, where inconsistency is handled by the intersection of closed repairs semantics (ICR) and the ontology is represented by Datalog+/− rules. Our proposal relies on an interactive and argumentative approach where the processes of explanation takes the form of a dialogue between the User and the Reasoner. We exploit the equivalence between argumentation and ICR-semantics to prove that the Reasoner can always provide an answer for user's questions.
