Description : The 22nd edition of the JURIX conference was held in Rotterdam on the 17th and 18th December and was hosted by the Erasmus University Rotterdam. While the conference was back to its country of origin, JURIX continues to attract a wide international audience. This year, the conference received submissions from all five continents. This clearly demonstrates the lively and growing interest for the highly interdisciplinary discipline of legal informatics. The selection of papers for this edition of JURIX covers a wide variety of topics in legal informatics, including contributions on established fields such as legal document management, argumentation, case based reasoning, dispute resolution, support for legal drafting and ontologies, to emerging areas such as regulatory compliance, normative multi-agent systems and game theory, as well as application areas, for example, fraud detection, legal tutoring systems and legal decision support systems.
Description : From its very beginning, legal informatics was mostly limited to the study of legal databases, but very early on, the Institute of Legal Information Theory and Techniques (ITTIG) started being involved with the specific topic of the Jurix conference, namely knowledge-based systems. This book includes programmatic papers with precise accounts of applications and prototypes. In many domains the focus has changed. For instance, research in retrieval has moved from classical Boolean systems into the management of documents in the Web. It addresses in particular standards and methods for embedding machine readable information into such documents and search methods that deal with heterogeneous information. Similarly, with regard to legal concepts, the focus has moved from thesauri to ontologies or to techniques for the automatic extraction of concepts from natural language texts. In the domain of legal reasoning merely deductive inferences have been expanded with models of legal argumentation, dialogue and mediation. The conference Logica, informatica e diritto 1981 and Jurix 2008 share the connection between theoretical models and the development of applications and prototypes. However, while in 1981 one could mostly see a juxtaposition of papers in legal theory and papers in computer applications, in 2008 we can see how discussions of issues in legal theory are embedded within contributions to legal informatics. This shows how research in legal informatics is increasingly becoming an autonomous domain of scientific inquiry by creatively incorporating and developing knowledge and methods from the two disciplines from which it originates (legal theory and computer science), while preserving links with them.
Description : The 25th edition of the JURIX conference was held in the Netherlands from the 17th till the 19th of December and was hosted by the University of Amsterdam. This year submissions came from 25 countries covering Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia. These proceedings contain sixteen full and five short papers that were selected for presentation. As usual they cover a wide range of topics.The majority of contributions deals with formal or computational models of legal argumentation and reasoning questions of coherence, evidential reasoning, visualisation of argumentation and formal representations of legal narratives are amongst
Description : This volume contains the Proceedings of the fourteenth JURIX conference, held December 13-14 2001 at the University of Amsterdam. The Foundation for Legal Knowledge Based Systems (JURIX) is a forum for research in Law and Computer Science. Since 1988, JURIX has organised annual international conferences on current research in the field. Topics addressed range from the theoretical (such as the modeling of the law and legal reasoning) to the practical (such as the design of systems that support legal decision making and teaching). More information on JURIX and the conference is available on the web at www.jurix.nl.
Description : This volume contains the proceedings of the 13th JURIX Conference on legal knowledge and information systems, held at Twente University, Enschede, the Netherlands. Topics covered include: the study of (artificial) legal reasoning and inference - case based reasoning, deontic or normative reasoning, model based legal reasoning; representation of legal knowledge in intelligent systems (logics, ontologies); knowledge support systems that support - legal decision making, legal drafting, legal knowledge discovery, legal teaching; storage and retrieval of legal information; application of machine learning in law; legal theoretical foundations for legal knowledge systems; verification and validation of legal knowledge systems; knowledge acquisition for legal knowledge systems; methodology for constructing legal knowledge systems.
Description : Includes papers from the twentieth JURIX conference. This book covers topics such as: ontology of the Polish Commercial Companies Code, a methodology for modeling legal workflows, content management and version management of legislation, representation of deadlines, and, an ontology for summarizing documents.
Description : "The twenty-fourth edition of the JURIX conference was held in Vienna, Austria on December 14th - 16th at the University of Vienna's Centre for Legal Informatics. The submissions for this volume come from authors from 18 different countries, showing the international appeal of the topic and conference. These proceedings comprise 12 full papers, 7 short papers and 3 research abstracts. The papers span a wide range of topics on the advanced management of legal information and knowledge, and cover foundational theories as well as developed applications." --Back cover.
Description : This volume contains the proceedings of the seventeenth Jurix conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems (Jurix 2004), which was held at the Harnack Haus of the Max Planck Society, in Berlin, Germany. Although the Jurix conference moved from The Netherlands to Germany, almost half of the papers are from The Netherlands. Except for a paper from Canada, the others are from 5 other countries in Western Europe. The effort to extend Jurix beyond The Netherlands and establish it as the leading European conference on legal knowledge systems is making progress. The papers in this publication focus on the topics of legal knowledge management and information retrieval; legal knowledge acquisition using natural language processing; legal ontologies; case-based reasoning; reasoning about evidence and legal reasoning support.
