For 30 years, the JURIX conference has provided an international forum for research on the intersection of Law, Artificial Intelligence and Information Systems, under the auspices of The JURIX Foundation for Legal Knowledge Systems.

The 2017 JURIX conference will take place in Luxembourg City (specific location to be announced) on 13, 14 and 15 December 2017.
As the conference approaches, more information will be published on this website.

Besides the standard conference track and the Doctoral Consortium, JURIX 2017 will host a number of workshops and tutorials related to the theme of the conference.
• Workshops provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas.
• Tutorials enable attendees to familiarize themselves with advances in AI and Law related subjects, both theoretical and technological.

JURIX 2017 welcomes workshops and tutorials that address topics that satisfy the following criteria:
• the topic falls in the general scope of JURIX 2017,
• there is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application, and
• there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic.

Note that in the case of multiple workshop/tutorial submissions on the same topic, you may be asked to merge your proposal with that of others.
