Aims and scope

Juris-informatics is a new research area which studies legal issues from the perspective of informatics. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss both the fundamental and practical issues for juris-informatics among people from the various backgrounds such as law, social science, information and intelligent technology, logic and philosophy, including the conventional "AI and law" area. We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics.


Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Model of legal reasoning
  • Argumentation / Negotiation / Argumentation agent
  • Legal term ontology
  • Formal legal knowledge-base / Intelligent management of legal knowledge-base
  • Translation of legal documents
  • Computer-aided law education
  • Use of Informatics and AI in law
  • Legal issues on ubiquitous computing / multi-agent system / the Internet
  • Social implications of use of informatics and AI in law
  • Natural language processing for legal knowledge
  • Verification and validation of legal knowledge systems
  • Online dispute resolution
  • AI and intellectual property
  • Computer aided legal education
  • Legal data mining
  • Legal document analysis
  • Legal information retrieval
  • Legal information extraction
  • Evidential reasoning
  • AI application to forensics
  • AI application to smart contracts and blockchain
  • Legislation support by AI/IT techniques
  • Any theories and technologies which is not directly related with
    juris-informatics but has a potential to contribute to this domain


We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere except as a submission to JURIX 2019 (The 32nd International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems).
