Meeting Description:

The workshop is collocated with International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law 2021 (https://icail.lawgorithm.com.br/).

It consists of two tracks:
Track 1: unsupervised approaches for understanding legal matter structure
In this track, participating teams are invited to process the data without using any external sources of knowledge. The objective is to break down matters into meaningful units of work by following UTBMS code definitions.

Track 2: semi-supervised approaches for understanding legal matter structure
In this track, participating teams are invited to process the data along with external sources of knowledge to guide the decomposition of legal matters into predefined units of work by following UTBMS code definitions

Call for Contributions:

The main objective of AILBIZ 2021 is to establish a venue for sharing and discussing with the research community at ICAIL problems that are relevant to the use of AI and ML for understanding the legal business. It will host a selected group of invited speakers along with technical contributions from the research community with special focus in the following topics:

* Segmentation, normalization and classification of text narratives
* Derivation of legal work structure from time series of text data
* Natural Language Understanding in the legal business domain
* Unsupervised and semi-supervised learning for text mining in the legal domain

Paper Format and Submissions:
AILBIZ 2021 will follow the same submission format and guidelines as ICAIL 2021. Papers should not exceed 6 pages (excluding references and appendix) and must follow the ACM sigconf template (for LaTeX) or the interim template layout.docx (for Word), both at http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. All papers should be converted to PDF prior to electronic submission. Submissions should be uploaded into AILBIZ's submission page, https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ailbiz2021, by the submission
deadline.

Paper reviews will be double blind. Papers submitted for review should not include names and affiliations of the authors, nor an acknowledgments section. These aspects can be added at the camera-ready stage. The references should include published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, though care should be taken in the style of writing in order to preserve anonymity.

* April 26, 2021: Paper Submission Deadline
* May 10, 2021: Paper Acceptance Notification
