This work introduces EVA, a multimodal argumentative Dialogue System that is capable of discussing controversial topics with the user. The interaction is structured as an argument game in which the user and the system select respective moves in order to convince their opponent. EVA's response is presented as a natural language utterance by a virtual agent that supports the respective content using characteristic gestures and mimic.
