We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere except as a submission to JURIX 2020 (The 33rd International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems). The double submission policy with JURIX 2020 is as follows:

Papers being submitted both to JURISIN2020 and JURIX2020 must note this on the title page.
A paper to be presented at JURISIN2020 must be withdrawn from JURIX2020 and vice versa according to the choice by the authors.
If the authors do not follow this double submission policy, the paper by the authors will not be included in the proceedings of JURISIN 2020.

Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style in a pdf form, which can be obtained from http://www.springeronline.comand not exceed 14 pages including figures, references, etc. If you use a word file, please follow the instruction of the format, and then convert it into a pdf form and submit it at the paper submission page: If you cannot submit a paperby EasyChair System by some trouble, please send email to "ksatoh[at]"

If a paper is accepted, at least one author of the paper must register the workshop through an online registration before submitting a camera-read copy, and present the paper on site if an on-site workshop is held, or present the paper on line if any authors cannot attend the session on site or if on-line workshop is held.
Without fulfilling this condition, the paper will not be in the proceedings.
