** 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

Legal term ontology
Formal legal knowledge-base / Intelligent management of legal
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
Any theories and technologies which is not directly related with
juris-informatics but has a potential to contribute to this domain
