This paper is a report on the third year of the Touché lab on argument retrieval hosted at CLEF 2022. With the goal of supporting and promoting the research and development of new technologies for argument mining and argument analysis, we have organized three shared tasks: (a) argument retrieval for controversial topics, where the task is to find sentences that reflect the gist of arguments from online debates, (b) argument retrieval for comparative issues, where the task is to find argumentative passages from web documents that help in making a comparative decision, and (c) image retrieval for arguments, where the task is to find images that show support for or opposition to a particular stance.
