Seventeenth International Workshop on Juris-informatics
(JURISIN 2023)
associated with JSAI International Symposia on AI 2023 (IsAI-2023)

Two days among June 4-6, 2023 (Hybrid Format)

Venue: Kumamoto-Jo Hall, Kumamoto, Japan
However, there is possibility that JURISIN 2023 would be an online only workshop due to COVID-19.

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 We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics.

Invited Speakers



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 in a pdf form, which can be obtained from https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines and 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 a paper is accepted, at least one author of the paper must register the workshop through 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.
