The Biennial Wake Forest Argumentation Conference began in November 1982, with a one-day conference on the Wake Forest University campus. After again meeting on the Wake Forest campus in 1984, the Conference was convened in 1988 in the Wake Forest study abroad facility, Casa Artom, in Venice, Italy, co-sponsored by the International Society for the Study of Argumentation (ISSA). The conference has
subsequently alternated between Venice and domestic sites, including Florida Atlantic University.

The 15th Wake Forest University Biennial Argumentation Conference will take place in Winston-Salem, NC from Friday, April 11 to Sunday, April 13, 2014.
