Information sharing between online users has altered the way we seek and find information. Users have at their disposal a wide range of tools for exchanging opinions and engaging into discussions. This creates a vast amount of information and the need of a more strict structure and semantics in order to take full advantage of the information and automatically extract useful conclusions to support decision-making. We describe a framework, based on computational argumentation, for modeling and analysing social discussions and demonstrate a question-and-answer web application, based on this framework, offering debating infrastructure for opinion exchanges between users and providing support for extracting intelligent answers to user-posed questions.
