CALL FOR PAPERS
================
International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence Technologies for Legal
Documents (AI4LEGAL2020)
In the context of the International Semantic Web Conference 2020 (ISWC 2020)
Virtual Event
November 2 or 3, 2020
http://ai.di.uoa.gr/#iswc20-workshop

Legislation applies to every aspect of people’s living and evolves
continuously building a huge network of
interlinked legal documents. Therefore, it is important for a government to
offer services that make legislation
easily accessible to the citizens aiming at informing them, enabling them
to defend their rights, or to use
legislation as part of their job. It is equally important to have law
professionals (lawyers, judges, etc.)
access legislation in ways that allow them to do their job easily (e.g.,
they might need to be able to see
the evolution of a law over time). Finally, in the age of the Web, it is
important to enable software developers
to develop applications for citizens and law professionals easily, by
connecting the available laws with other
kinds of government or private sector information. Towards this direction,
there are already many countries in
Europe and elsewhere that have computerized the legislative process by
developing platforms for archiving legislation
documents and offering on-line access to them using standards such as Akoma
Ntoso (aka LegalDocML) which is an OASIS
standard, the European standard CEN-MetaLex, the European Legislation
Identifier, the European Case Law Identifier etc.
There also private companies (e.g., ROSS Intelligence, LexisNexis, RAVEL,
LexMachina etc.) that specialize on providing
digital services for law, case law, compliance, contracts, etc. The vision
of the AI4LEGAL2020 international workshop is
to bring together Artificial Intelligence researchers and practitioners to
work on the problem of digitization of
legislation and legal documents in today’s interconnected world.
