Meeting Description:

Eighth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2014)
http://www.jaist.ac.jp/org/jurisin2014/ 
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. 

Topics:

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.
Please visit the homepage of the bar exam competition.

Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN) 2014:

Submissions:

We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics. We will open the submission site via EasyChair shortly.

We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere except as a submission to JURIX 2014 (The 27th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems). The double submission policy with JURIX 2014 is as follows:

Papers being submitted both to JURISIN2014 and JURIX2014 must note this on the title page.
A paper to be presented at JURISIN2014 must be withdrawn from JURIX2014 and vice versa according to the choice by the authors. If the authors do not follow this double submission policy, the paper by the authors will not be included in the proceedings of JURISIN 2014.

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: September 10, 2014
Workshop: November 23-24, 2014

Post Proceedings:

The selected papers of the previous workshops were published as volumes of LNAI4914(JURISIN 2007), LNAI5447(JURISIN 2008), LNAI6284(JURISIN 2009) , LNAI6797(JURISIN2010), LNAI7258(JURISIN2011) ,LNAI7856(JURISIN2012) and LNAI(JURISIN 2013) respectively.
In addition, the authors have an opportunity to submit their full versions to the special issue of Journal of New Generation Computing. The detail will be announced soon.

Competition on Legal Information Extraction/Entailment (COLIEE-14):

As an associated event of International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN) 2014, we are happy to announce a competition of legal information extraction and entailment derived from Japanese bar exams. 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.

There are two tasks in the competition. One is to extract articles from Japanese civil code which contributes to solving a bar exam yes/no question and the other is to check entailment of a question from given civil code article(s). If we could combine these methods, we could solve a bar exam question as a whole. Detailed description can be found in the above URL.

All the data are available both in Japanese and English (translation from Japanese bar exams and civil code). And you can choose either (or both) of them to accomplish the above tasks.

As noted above, the intention is to start to build a community of practice regarding legal textual entailment, so that the adoption and adaptation of general methods from a variety of fields is considered, and that participants share their approaches, problems, and results.

We require participants to submit a paper on their method and experimental results using training corpus to JURISIN 2014 workshop in accordance with an instruction specified at
http://www.jaist.ac.jp/org/jurisin2014/ and to present the paper at the special session of JURISIN 2014.

These papers will be reviewed in the same way of usual submission to JURISIN 2014 and an extended version could be submitted to an LNAI post-proceeding of JSAI-IsAI2014 (the name of symposium in which JURISIN 2014 is included). The selected paper will be published in the LNAI post-proceedings.

Important Dates:

Training corpus available: July 21, 2014
Test queries available: August 21, 2014
Results submission deadline: August 28, 2014
Paper submission deadline: September 10, 2014 
JURISIN 2014 Workshop and assessments returned to participants: November 23-24, 2014 

Application Details:

Organizations wishing to participate in JURISIN 2014 should respond to this call
for participation by submitting an application. To apply, submit the application and memorandums of the following URL to miyoung2 at ualberta.ca
