Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The workshop brings together three groups of scholars: leading computer scientists and linguists from around the world whose work on authorship attribution has made significant progress; American legal scholars who specialize in the admissibility of scientific evidence in court; and scholars specializing in statistical analysis. Presentations will be made by computer scientists and linguists, with comments and discussion from the evidence scholars and statisticians.

The goals of the workshop are to determine how the current state of the art measures up to legal evidentiary standards, and to promote interaction among the disciplines that might lead to further developments in the field. Proceedings will be published in the Law School's Journal of Law and Policy. An Internet platform for dissemination of scholarship and information about authorship attribution in the courts will also be developed and launched as part of the workshop.
