Call for Paper
12th International Workshop on Juris-informatics
(JURISIN 2018)
associated with JSAI International Symposia on AI 2018
(isAI 2018)

Raiosha, Hiyoshi Campus in Keio University
12 and 13 November 2018 – Yokohama, Japan

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 We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics.
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 applications of robotics and AI to society
•Social implications of use of informatics and AI in law
•Natural language processing for legal knowledge
•Verification and validation of legal knowledge systems
•Normative Systems/Deontic Logic
•Any theories and technologies which is not directly related with juris-informatics but has a potential to contribute to this domain

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 2018 (The 31th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems). The double submission policy with JURIX 2018 is as follows:
1.Papers being submitted both to JURISIN2018 and JURIX2018 must note this on the title page.
2.A paper to be presented at JURISIN2018 must be withdrawn from JURIX2018 and vice versa according to the choice by the authors.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 2018.

Selected papers will be published as a post-proceedings via Springer Verlag LNAI series after the second round of review after the workshop.
