Workshop Program

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 for juris-informatics 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We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics.


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

* Legal reasoning
* Argumentation/Argumentation agent
* Legal term ontology
* Formal / Intelligent management of legal knowledge-base
* Translation of legal documents
* 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


We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style, which can be obtained from, and not exceed 10 pages including figures, references, etc.
If you use a word file, please follow the instruction.
Paper submission is closed.

A printed volume of the proceedings will be available at the workshop.
