Argumentation has become an important topic in artificial intelligence; the basic idea is to identify arguments in favor and against a statement, select the acceptable ones, and determine whether the original statement can be accepted or not. However, the arguments involved in an argumentative discussion may have different relevance degrees; for this reason, argumentation frameworks need to represent the qualities that describe the soundness of an argument in order to refine the acceptability process performed over the argumentation model.
