This paper proposes a new framework able to take into account recursive interactions in bipolar abstract argumentation systems. We address issues such as “How an interaction can impact another one?”, or in other words “How can the validity of an interaction be affected if this interaction is attacked or supported by another one?”. Thus, building on numerous examples, a new method for flattening such recursive bipolar abstract argumentation systems (ASAF) using meta-arguments is proposed and compared with the original framework defined in .
