The workshop's focus is on:
- philosophical understanding of coherence and its relevance for legal reasoning (with particular emphasis on analytic epistemology, including probabilistic accounts of coherence)
- legal-philosophical theories of coherence and their possible applications in the field of AI and Law
- cognitive scientific and AI research on coherence with applications to law.
The deadline for paper submission is April 20. Recommended length of papers is from 10.000 characters including spaces (position papers) to 30.000 characters including spaces (full papers).

An international conference entitled RULES 2013 will take place in Kraków, Poland on September 27-29, 2013. The conference is organized by the Department of Legal Theory of Faculty of Law and Administration of Jagiellonian University.
The following invited speakers will present their lectures during the conference:
The idea of the Conference is to bring together philosophers, legal philosophers, psychologists and cognitive scientists, including researchers on artificial intelligence, who are interested in the problem of rules, rule-following and normativity.
We invite submission of abstracts by February 28 by means of the conference's Easy Chair installation. The submission of abstracts is optional, but will be helpful as regards organization of panels. The submission of full papers will be open from April 1 to April 30, 2013.
The papers from the conference will be published in an edited volume. The language of the conference is English. We look forward to your submissions and to seeing you in Kraków in September.

The DESI (Discovery of Electronically Stored Information) workshop series addresses the problem of searching effectively and efficiently for relevant documents, in the context of litigation or investigation, across increasingly complex, enterprise-wide collections within corporate and institutional settings. The workshops discuss the use of AI and other advanced forms of search techniques in legal settings, as cost-efficient alternatives to traditional Boolean and manual searching. At DESI V, we intend to focus on best practices and standards for using predictive coding and other forms of machine learning in e-discovery.
The submission deadline is May 1 for research papers and May 8 for position papers. For more information see the workshop website at http://www.umiacs.umd.edu/~oard/desi5/
Only a limited number of students can participate. The application deadline is March, 31. For more information see http://lawandlogic.org.
To mark this anniversary, the editors of AI and Law journal would like to produce a special issue of that journal. The proposed format will be a little unusual, since it is intended to reflect the breadth of the conference and the range of the papers that have appeared there. The idea is that a large number of contributors should each write a short piece about some particular paper that appeared in ICAIL. The paper should be one that has contributed to the contributor's understanding of some aspect of AI and Law, and which still has some message for today.
The deadline for expressions of interest is February 17th. For more information see
At the Universities of Utrecht and Groningen two PhD
positions are available on a project "Designing and
Understanding Forensic Bayesian Networks with Arguments
and Scenarios". A successful candidate has a Master's
degree in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science,
Mathematics, Philosophy or a related field, and has an
interest in formal research in argumentation, narrative
techniques and Bayesian Networks, and their application
in forensic contexts.

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the
fundamental concepts of law and to develop theories and
methods to systematize law. In Vienna, where JURIX 2011
is held, Hans Kelsen developed his general theory of
law, in which he systematized law as a united order in
terms of legal norms clarifying fundamental concepts of
law. Considering the achievements of Hans Kelsen, it is
worthwhile to try to clarify fundamental concepts of
law and to systematize law applying recent scientific
perspectives and methods of thought in terms of
artificial intelligence and law.

The workshop invites submissions of original research about the application of ICT to the early phases of the policy cycle, namely those before the legislators fix the legislation: agenda setting, policy analysis, and lawmaking. The research should seek to address the gap noted above. The workshop focuses particularly on using and integrating a range of subcomponents – information extraction, text processing, representation, modelling, simulation, reasoning, and argument – to provide policy making tools to the public and public administrators.
