TheWeb-based intelligent decision support system (Web-IDSS) is pivotal for a Virtual Team (VT) to successfully execute business-related tasks. The current generation of Web-IDSS built on top of semantic web technologies for VTs lacks the capability to provide decision support when underlying information is incomplete and/or contradictory. In this article, we address this limitation of current Web-IDSS through defeasible logic based argumentation formalism. The proposed Web-IDSS uses a hybrid reasoning approach: forward chaining (data-driven) for the construction of arguments over incomplete information, and backward chaining (goal-driven) for conflict identification and resolution with explanation. The proposed Web-IDSS adheres to web standards and publishes the outcome of argumentative reasoning in Argument Interchange Format (AIF). © 2011 IEEE.
