Meeting Description: Eighth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2014)
November 23-24, 2014

Raiosha Building, Keio University Kanagawa, Japan

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.


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 ubiquitous computing / multi-agent system / the Internet
- 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
- 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 2014 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.
