JURISIN 2015

JURISIN

Aims and Scope

Juris-informatics is a new research area which studies legal issues from the perspective of informatics. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss both the fundamental and practical issues among people from the various backgrounds such as law, social science, information and intelligent technology, logic and philosophy, including the conventional "AI and law" area. We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics.

Important Dates

  • Submission Deadline: August 28, 2015
  • Notification October 1, 2015
  • Camera-ready due October 15, 2015
  • Workshop: November 16 - 18, 2015

Topics

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Model of legal reasoning
  • Argumentation / Negotiation / Argumentation agent
  • Legal term ontology
  • Formal legal knowledge-base / Intelligent management of legal knowledge-base
  • Translation of legal documents
  • Information retrieval of legal texts
  • Computer-aided law education
  • Use of Informatics and AI in law
  • Legal issues on ubiquitous computing / multi-agent system / the Internet
  • Social implications of use of informatics and AI in law
  • Natural language processing for legal knowledge
  • Verification and validation of legal knowledge systems
  • Any theories and technologies which is not directly related with juris-informatics but has a potential to contribute to this domain

Bar Exam Competition
JURISIN invites participation in a legal information extraction and entailment competition. Previous conferences/workshops have not conducted such a shared task on a large legal data collection, so we hope that the 2015 workshop will help establish a major experimental effort in the legal information extraction/retrieval field. The motivation for the competition is to help create a research community of practice for the capture and use of legal information. Please visit the homepage of the bar exam competition: http://webdocs.cs.ualberta.ca/~miyoung2/COLIEE2015/

Invited Speakers
Giovanni Sartor (University of Bologna/European University Institute of Florence)
Phan Minh Dung (Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand, (under negotiation))

  2. A paper to be presented at JURISIN2015 must be withdrawn from JURIX2015 and vice versa according to the choice by the authors.
  3. If the authors do not follow this double submission policy, the paper by the authors will not be included in the proceedings of JURISIN 2015.
