In this paper we present design concepts for a chatbot than can be used for argument acquisition. We call the acquisition of arguments by means of a chatbot argument harvesting. The chatbot asks the user for his or her arguments on a topic of interest. It can also be used to harvest counterargument, values, preferences, as well as information about the user like his/her personal circumstances. The harvested arguments and other attributes have various applications from the instantiation of argument graphs to the development of computational persuasion systems.
