Final CFP: JURISIN2016 (deadline extended)

Tenth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2016)
November 14 – 15, 2016
http://www.kl.i.is.nagoya-u.ac.jp/jurisin2016/

Raiosha Building, Keio University Kanagawa, Japan

with a support of The Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence in
association with Fourth JSAI International Symposia on AI (JSAI-isAI 2016)

**** Submission Deadline: September 5, 2016 (Extended!) ****

**** 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unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on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.

**** Topics ****

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Legal reasoning
* Argumentation/Argumentation agent
* Legal term ontology
* Formal legal knowledge-base/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

**** Bar Exam Competition ****

This year, JURISIN invites participation in a legal information
extraction and entailment competition. Previous conferences/workshops
have not conducted such a shared task on a large legal data collection,
so we hope that the 2016 workshop will help establish a major
experimental effort in the legal information extraction/retrieval field.
The motivation for the competition is to help create a research community
of practice for the capture and use of legal information.
Please visit the homepage of the bar exam competition.
Task Registration Due is June 30, 2016.
