Workshop on Legal Text, Document, and Corpus Analytics (LTDCA-2016) First Call for Participation

Workshop Description
Recent improvements both in Human Language Technology (HLT) and in techniques for storage and rapid analysis of large data collections have created new opportunities for automated interpretation of legal text, improved access to statutory and regulatory rules, and greater insights into the structure and evolution of legal systems. These techniques hold promise for the courts, legal practitioners, scholars, and citizens alike. These advances have coincided with a rapid expansion of interest in automated processing and understanding of legal texts on the part of industry, government agencies, court personnel, and the public.
This workshop is intended to be a forum for discussion of research ideas and practical developments that involve interpretation of legal text, analysis of structured legal documents, improved publication and access to document collections, predictive analysis based on legal text mining, and visualization of legal corpora.

Final Call for Papers: "Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation"

Special Issue of the journal, Informal Logic (ISSN: 0824-2577)
Second Special Issue of the ArgDiaP series, www.argdiap.pl/InformalLogic

"Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation" will explore the current state of the art in the study legal argumentation which is characterized by the applicability of a great variety of concepts, distinctions, frameworks and methods. Our aim is to provide a venue for the exchange of ideas from different research perspectives, including AI and Law, argumentation theory, and legal theory.

IAAIL President’s End-of-Year Message to Members

2015 was a banner year for Artificial Intelligence, including AI and Law. It was a year when we heard about advances in self-driving cars and expanded applications for robots, about quantum computers and cognitive computing. In the field of AI and Law, we learned about developments in e-discovery, big data and predictive analytics. Cognitive computing applications have included IBM Watson-based systems like ROSS, and future applications are anticipated from the relationship recently announced between Thomson Reuters and IBM.

3rd International Workshop “Network Analysis in Law”

in conjunction with JURIX 2015: The 28th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems
9-11 December 2015, Braga, Portugal

More and more (para-) legal data become available in electronic form, either from the official, authoritative sources (governments, public administrations, courts, notaries, but also possibly banks, insurance companies, etc.) or from third parties like (commercial) publishers, NGO’s, and universities. This may concern sources of law – statutes, case law, treaties – criminology and criminalistic data, statistical data on law application, etc. This opens up new opportunities for research into the collection and interlinking, descriptive and predictive analysis, and visualization of these collections of legal data. One of the techniques for doing this kind of research is network analysis, but others are needed to create the networks and to visualize them. The NAiL workshops are intended as a forum for discussion of these research ideas and developments.
