ICAIL 2017 – Call for Workshops and Tutorials


The 16th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL
2017) will be held at King's College London from Monday, June 12 to Friday,
June 16, 2017. The main Call for Papers can be found at:

The ICAIL 2017 Tutorials and Workshops complement the main track of the
conference and offer an opportunity to present late-breaking research on
AI&Law results, on-going research projects, and innovative work in
progress. Tutorials and Workshops aim to encourage presenters and
participants to engage in research discussions; such discussions can be
valuable inputs for the future work of the presenters while offering
participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging
research trends, and to network with other researchers.

ICAIL 2017 plans to run workshops and tutorials on either Monday, June 12
and Friday, June 16, or Monday, June 12 and Tuesday, June 13. Proposals for
workshops and tutorials are invited.

*Submission information*

Tutorials should either cover a broad topic of relevance to the AI and Law
community or showcase innovative AI&Law related implementations and
technologies, both in academia and in industry. We explicitly welcome
entries from industry, but tutorials should go beyond pure advertisements
of commercial software packages and convey at least a minimal scientific

Proposals should contain enough information to permit evaluation on the
basis of importance, quality, and community interest. Each workshop should
have one or more designated organizers and a program or organizing
committee. Proposals should be 2 to 4 pages (in PDF format) and include at
least the following information:

•             Title of the proposed tutorial/workshop.

•             The workshop or tutorial topic and goals, their significance,
and their appropriateness for ICAIL 2017.

•             The intended audience, the research areas from which
participants may come, the likely number of participants (with some of
their names, if known), and plans for publicizing the workshop or tutorial.

•             Organization of the workshop or tutorial, including the
intended format (such as invited talks, presentations, panel discussions,
or other methods for ensuring an interactive atmosphere) and the expected
length (full day or half day), and any special requirements.

•             For tutorials, any requirements of the participants (e.g.,
bring own laptop), prerequisites (if any background is to be assumed for
attendees of the tutorial), knowledge or skill that will be gained by
attendees, brief description of the tutorial, a statement giving clear
motivation/justification for the topic, a comprehensive outline of the
proposed content, a statement explaining if this tutorial has been given
before and, if so, how this presentation will be different, materials to be
provided to attendees (i.e. course slides, annotated bibliography, code
snippets, etc. NOTE: the materials themselves do not need to be provided in
the proposal)

•             Organizers’ details: a description of the main organizers’
backgrounds in the proposed topic; and complete addresses including
webpages of all organizers and committee members (if applicable) and a
single paragraph bio-sketch per tutorial/workshop organizer (including any
previous experience with similar tutorials or workshops).

*Review Criteria*

All tutorial and workshop proposals will be reviewed and selected based on
relevance to the AI&Law field, potential significance, and clarity

At least one of the organizers must be a registered participant at the
conference, and be responsible for the tutorial/workshop corresponding
session. ICAIL 2017 reserves the right to cancel workshops or tutorials
that fail to reach a minimum number of registered participants.

*Submission Date and Contact Details*

The submission deadline for workshop and tutorial proposals is December 9,
2016. Questions should be directed to Clara Smith, Tutorial and Workshop
Chair (claritasmith at gmail.com) or Guido Governatori, Program Chair (
guido.governatori at data61.csiro.au). Proposals should be submitted to both
