Abstract argumentation is concerned with the interaction of abstract arguments, where "abstract" means that the contents and internal structure of arguments is not further analyzed. Approximation fixpoint theory has emerged as a unifying framework for the semantics of the major nonmonotonic knowledge representation formalisms and beyond. In this talk, we show how approximation fixpoint theory can be applied to abstract argumentation, leading to a clean and simple definition of argumentation semantics.
