Argumentation-based dialogue is claimed to be a rich form of agent interaction, which allows agents to make informed decisions using the additional information that is exchanged as arguments during the dialogue. In this paper, we demonstrate how agents can use domain specific knowledge provided by access to ontological information in the process of participating in argumentation-base dialogues. We also demonstrate how information obtained in a dialogue can be used by the agents to argue in subsequent dialogues. As an example scenario, we refer to an assisted living application where agents argue about task reallocation. We then define an agent decision-making process and a protocol; the decision-making and the protocol for argumentation-based dialogues are defined for cooperative agents in our scenario (i.e., task reallocation)
