Sylvie Doutre

Associate professor / Maître de conférences
IRIT - University of Toulouse 1



I am an associate professor (Maître de conférences) in computer science at the University of Toulouse 1 in France, member of the IRIT group Logic, Interaction, Language and Computation (LILaC) in the Artificial Intelligence department.


My research interests mainly concern argumentation-based reasoning. I currently focus on modelling and computational aspects of formal argumentation semantics and of the dynamics of argumentation. I am also interested in bridging the gap between formal and natural approaches of argumentation.

I am one of the organization chairs of the French Artificial Intelligence Platform (PFIA 2019), and one of the program chairs of the French Days on Foundational Artificial Intelligence (JIAF).

See research, projects and publications to know more.


I am co-heading the Master MIAGE IM (Ingénierie Métier).

I teach databases, web design, algorithmics and programming, in the faculties of Economics, Management, and Computer Science. I also taught a research-oriented course on Argumentation Dynamics at the European Agent Systems Summer School.
