- ---------------------------------------------------------- --- Apologies for Multiple Postings - Please Circulate --- ---------------------------------------------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS LOAIT Workshop Legal Ontologies and Artificial Intelligence Techniques http://www.ittig.cnr.it/loait/loait.html#top June 6, 2005 Bologna, Italy held in conjunction with ICAIL-05 http://www.wogli.unibo.it/icail05/ == LOAIT Description In the last few years Legal Informatics (the study of methods for automating the treatment of legal information) has been significantly influenced by Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches. For instance, Machine Learning techniques have successfully been applied to problems of legal documents classification, legal information retrieval, legal knowledge discovery and extraction. As the use of these techniques becomes more widespread it also becomes clearer how to enhance their performances. One way of doing this is to employ structured (domain) knowledge in order to reduce complexity and support correct reasoning. Legal Ontologies are playing a crucial role in providing such knowledge at various levels of specificity and formality. The LOAIT workshop aims at offering an overview of theories and well-founded applications that combine Legal Ontologies and AI techniques. Similarly to past events organized in conjunction with ICAIL-97, Jurix 2001 and ICAIL-03 the LOAIT workshop will constitute a valuable opportunity for researchers and practitioners in AI, AI&Law, Legal Ontologies and related fields to discuss problems, exchange information and compare perspectives. Authors are invited to submit papers describing original completed work, work in progress, interesting problems, case studies or research trends related to one or more of the topics of interest listed below. Submitted papers will be refereed by two experts based on originality, significance and technical soundness. ==== == LOAIT Topics of Interest Topics of Interest include but are not limited to: Legal Ontologies and Natural Language Processing Legal Ontologies and Machine Learning for classification tasks Legal Ontologies for text categorization Legal Ontologies and the Semantic Web Legal knowledge discovery and organization by AI approaches Ontologies and legal standard modelling languages Ontologies of property rights, persons and organizations, legal procedures, contracts, legal causality, etc. Ontological views on models of legal reasoning (e.g. regulatory compliance, case-based reasoning, reasoning with uncertainty, etc.) Multilingual and terminological aspects of regulatory ontologies Engineering of regulatory ontologies (e.g. conceptual analysis, representation, modularization and layering, reusability, evolution and dynamics, etc.) Experiences with projects and applications involving regulatory ontologies (e.g. legal knowledge based systems, legal information retrieval systems, e-government or e-commerce applications) Modeling legal norms, concepts, rules, cases, principles, values and procedures, methods for managing organizational change when introducing legal knowledge systems ==== == LOAIT Important Dates March 25, 2005: Paper submission April 25, 2005: Notification of acceptance May 10, 2005: Camera-ready paper June 6, 2005: Workshop ==== == LOAIT Submission & Registration Details Paper length: max. 14 pages Paper electronic submission: manuscript must be submitted in PS or PDF format at http://vortex.uvt.nl/icail05ws/ (create your account, select "Submit Paper" and choose "LOAIT Workshop") Paper camera ready format: instructions for camera ready papers to be announced on http://www.ittig.cnr.it/loait/loait.html#top Registration details on http://www.wogli.unibo.it/icail05/?page_name=reg ==== == LOAIT Organizers Laboratory for Applied Ontology (ISTC-CNR), Rome, Italy Jos Lehmann jos.lehmann_(on)_istc.cnr.it Institute of Legal Information Theories and Techniques (ITTIG-CNR) Florence, Italy Maria Angela Biasiotti biasiotti_(on)_ittig.cnr.it Enrico Francesconi francesconi_(on)_ittig.cnr.it Maria Teresa Sagri sagri_(on)_ittig.cnr.it ==== == LOAIT Program Committee Trevor Bench-Capon, University of Liverpool, United Kingdom Richard Benjamins, ISOCO, Spain Guido Boella, Universita' di Torino, Italy Daniele Bourcier, University of Paris, France Joost Breuker, Leibniz Center for Law (UvA), The Netherlands Pompeu Casanovas, Department of Political Science, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain Jaime Delgado, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain Aldo Gangemi, Laboratory for Applied Ontology (ISTC-CNR), Italy Mustafa Jarrar, STARLab, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium Guiraude Lame, Responsable des systèmes d'information juridique, Caisse Nationale des Caisses d'Epargne & Ecole CERSA, Université Paris 2, France Laurens Mommers, Leiden University, The Netherlands Giovanni Sartor, University of Bologna, Italy Daniela Tiscornia, Institute of Legal Information Theories and Techniques (ITTIG-CNR), Italy André Valente, Knowledge Systems Ventures, United States of America Radboud Winkels, Leibniz Center for Law (UvA), The Netherlands ==== _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_mailman.elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
