Workshops

LDA: CEILI Workshop on Legal Data Analysis

The Workshop on Legal Data Analysis of the Central European Institute of Legal Informatics (CEILI) intends to focus on representation, analysis and reasoning with legal data in information systems from a lawyer’s and citizen’s perspective; trying to get support in mastering big data in law but also respecting privacy issues.

The pervasive use of information systems has led to tremendous success in enterprises and businesses. With a user-centric design, information systems (IS) have proven their value in today’s companies on several occasions. This especially holds for time-, data-, and knowledge-intensive tasks, which most of the tasks in legal science and legal practice are. Most recent developments have unveiled unexpected possibilities in overcoming the retrieval constraints of access to legal knowledge. Pre-defined formal models of legal knowledge and semantic documents allow semantics of textual and structural information with tools of Natural Language Processing, Named Entity Recognition, Network Analysis, Information Retrieval and additional analysis and measurements. The user perspective is fundamental during the planning, design, implementation and maintenance. This workshop particularly encourages submissions describing concrete user problems, needs and concerns in the context of legal data and legal analysis.

This workshop is intended to be a forum for discussion of research ideas, questions and developments addressing all kind of concrete user support in processes related to the representation, analysis and reasoning on legal information.

AICOL: IX Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and the Complexity of Legal Systems

The AICOL workshops welcome research in AI, political and legal theory, jurisprudence, philosophy of technology and the law, social intelligence, NorMAS, to address the ways in which the current information revolution affects basic pillars of today’s legal and political systems, in such fields as e-democracy, e-government, e-justice, transnational governance, Data Protection, and Security.

We are, indeed, dealing with changes and developments that occur at a rapid pace, as the law transforms itself, in order to respond to and progress alongside with the advances of technology. In addition to the traditional hard and soft law-tools of governance, such as national rules, international treaties, codes of conduct, guidelines, or the standardization of best practices, the new scenarios of the information revolution have increasingly suggested the aim to govern current ICTs-driven societies through the mechanisms of design, codes and architectures. AI approaches to the complexity of legal systems should take into account how the regulatory tools of technology impact on canonical interpretations of the law.

This Workshop is mainly addressed to computer scientists, legal theorists, social scientists, and philosophers.

TeReCom - 1st Workshop on Technologies for Regulatory Compliance

Companies operating internationally or wanting to branch out to other countries and markets, face multiple difficulties to engaging in trade abroad and to localise their products and services to other countries.

The management of compliance (i.e. conformance to a set of laws, regulations, policies, or best practices) is one of the key factors of success, and the latest developments in technology enable a new sort of applications that facilitate the management of compliance.

In order to develop new regtech products and services to assist lawyers and experts in compliance tasks, a new breed of technologies is necessary using the recent advances in AI. As recently ruled by the German Federal Court of Justice, Compliance Management System can lead to reduction of a fine –eventually only those companies with advanced compliance systems will be able to compete .

The 1st TeReCom workshop welcomes research in technologies for regulatory compliance, specially if using semantic resources or if applying Artificial Intelligence advances.
