JURIX 2023: Legal Knowledge & Information Systems

18-20 Dec 2023
Maastricht, The Netherlands

JURIX 2023 - The 36th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Infor
mation Systems

Maastricht University, Maastricht, the Netherlands.
18-20 December 2023. https://jurix23.maastrichtlawtech.eu/

(Long, short, demo) paper submission: 8 September. Abstract submission (rec
ommended): 1 September.

For more than 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 purpose of the JURIX conference series is to foster scientific exchange
 between researchers, practitioners, students, dedicated to exploring recen
t advancements, challenges, and opportunities of technologies applied to le
gal and para-legal activities. We invite submissions of original papers on 
legal information, legal knowledge systems, artificial intelligence and law
, computational and socio-technical approaches to law and other normative s
ystems, covering foundations, methods, tools, systems, interfaces, and appl
ications. Papers should demonstrate added value, novelty of contribution an
d/or analysis, significance of the work, (formal) validity and/or proper ev

Topics include, but are not limited to:

I - Logics and Normative Systems

- Computational theories of law
- Computational representations of legal rules and domain-specific language
s (DSLs) for law
- Formal logics and computational models of legal reasoning and decision-ma
king (e.g., argumentation, statutory, rule-based, case-based, evidential re
asoning), including relevant concepts such as qualification, causation, res
- Formal models of norms and norm-governed systems
- Knowledge representation, knowledge engineering, and ontologies in the le
gal domain
- Semantic web, open and linked data, mark-up languages for the legal domain
- Normative reasoning by autonomous agents; multi-agent systems: norm opera
tionalization, norm emergence
- Computational methods for agent-based modelling for policy-making and nor
- Computational methods for negotiation, contract formation, dispute resolu
- Computational methods for preference aggregation and voting
- Computational methods for compliance-checking, authorization, auditing, a
nd regulation
- Computational methods for AI and Data Governance

II - Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning

- Argument mining on legal texts
- Machine learning methods and models for legal document classification, in
formation retrieval, automatic summarization of legal text
- Machine learning methods and models in support to regulatory and contract

ic standard NLP tasks (Named Entity Recognition, Semantic Role Labelling, T
ranslation, etc.)
- Information extraction, text understanding (e.g. entailment) from legal d
ata and texts
- Question-answering systems, chatbots, and dialog systems in the legal dom
- Network analysis applied to legal documents (statutory law, case law, jur
isprudence) and legal data.
- Knowledge discovery, Causal discovery, and Process mining in the legal do
- Recommender systems in the legal domain

III - Cognitive and Socio-Technical Systems

- Cognitive computing and AI-enabled information systems for legal knowledg
e management (legal research and case management), legal data visualization
, and decision support.
- Hybrid architectures (symbolic and sub-symbolic) in legal applications
- Human-computer interaction in legal applications
- Explainable AI for legal applications
- Fairness and bias mitigation in AI systems for legal practices
- Technical regulation of AI, data-sharing, information processing, and com
puting systems
- AI-enabled information systems improving access to justice and equal oppo
- e-government, e-democracy, and e-justice
- AI applications in legal education and training
- Intelligent legal tutoring systems, intelligent support systems for foren

Submission and publication
The deadline for paper submission is September 8th, 2023, all over the eart
h. Abstract submission (September 1st) is recommended. All submissions shou
ld be formatted using the styles and guidelines in the IOS Press Instructio
ns for Authors (https://www.iospress.com/book-article-instructions). Papers
 are to be submitted in PDF format through Easychair (https://easychair.org

There are three categories of papers: long, short, and demo. Please indicat
e a category when you submit your paper.

- Long papers: reports of well-developed and original research. An accepted
 long paper scores well in terms of relevance, originality, technical quali
ty, significance, literature review, presentation, reviewers confidence,
 and overall evaluation. These should not exceed 10 pages (including refere
nces). A paper which is not accepted as a long paper may be recommended by 
reviewers as a short paper.
- Short papers: (short) descriptions of preliminary results or an innovativ
e idea. These papers should not exceed 6 pages (including references).
- Demo papers: (short) descriptions of a system. These papers should not ex
ceed 4 pages (including references). Authors of demo papers should be willi
ng to share (a screencast of) the demo privately with the reviewers, if so 

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another jou
rnal or conference. The conference proceedings will be published by IOS Pre
ss as gold open access in their series Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence
 and Applications (FAIA) (https://www.iospress.com/catalog/book-series/fron
