CALL FOR PAPERS

AICOL 2021: AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems

AICOL XIII@JURIX2021

Programme here. The link here.

OBJECTIVES

The aim of AICOL is to develop models of legal knowledge more suitable to the complexity of contemporary legal systems. AICOL volumes are focused on AI, political and legal theory, jurisprudence, philosophy of technology and the law, social intelligence and NorMAS. Information can be found at the AICOL website: here.

This is a new call for AICOL@JURIX2021, in its 13th Edition.

AICOL papers are regularly published at LNAI Springer Series. See past editions at:

The new fifth volume reflects the ethical turn that has occurred in the field of AI during the past three years and positions L&T research as providing solutions to develop the hybrid intelligence space opened by Artificial Intelligence. It also fosters a new reflection on legal knowledge graphs, legal rights, legal governance, and the rule of law.  LNAI 13048 will be presented on JURIX 21. With this call for papers, we will start compiling the 6th AICOL volume.

Special track on COVID-19 and its consequences

The last Workshop AICOL-XII@JURIX2020 held online in Brno, Czech Republic, addressed the Covid-19 reaction from the AI and legal informatics communities. Many datathons, hackathons and coding events took place during the crisis summoning the brightest talents to fight the pandemics. The AI community was requested to contribute to this effort, and the response was manifested in a number of different solutions. We think that the situation created by the pandemic is not yet over, we are not yet in its aftermath. Therefore, we will keep addressing a special attention to these issues, because they can be connected not only to health policies, but to their social effects on the digital society, e.g. the redefinition of work and platform-driven economies, or the boost of hate speech and cybercrime on the web.  In this sense, in addition to its regular topics, the Workshop will also welcome:

• Joint interdisciplinary social, legal, political, philosophical, and technical approaches to fight COVID-19.

• Open Government Dataset with norms enacted around COVID-19. If the effectivity of measures has to be evaluated, norms have to be queryable as data. Any description of resource, method or algorithm will be welcome.

• COVID-19 tracing apps legal comparative analysis, technology benchmarking, novel solutions to preserve privacy and democracy, review of state of the art with critical comment.

• Solutions to hasten judiciary proceedings. After the collapse of hospitals, the collapse of courts has followed. Contributions for alleviating bottlenecks are welcome.

• Treatment of fast-changing norms. Many norms have been issued in the last few months as a response to COVID-19, at every level: government, local administrations, internal policies in companies. Papers addressing the fast-changing and intertwined nature of these norms are welcome.

• AI solutions for fighting COVID-19 without to exceed in a super-surveillance, investigating also how the autonomy of the medical treatment is balanced with the public interests.

Special track on COVID-19

AICOL cannot ignore the dramatic change of the state of play caused by the COVID-19 crisis. Many datathons, hackathons and coding events took place during the crisis summoning the brightest talents to fight the pandemics. The AI community was requested to contribute to this effort, and the response was manifested in a number of different solutions. The legal informatics community should not lag behind, as a burst of new social, legal and technical problems has erupted, and they should be addressed together.

• Joint social, legal, political, philosophical, and technical approaches to fight COVID-19. In this global emergency moment, the interdisciplinary studies could contribute to apply holistic approach avoiding the polarization on only one aspect of this complex system.

• Open Government Dataset with norms enacted around COVID-19. If the effectivity of measures has to be evaluated, norms have to be queryable as data. Any description of resource, method or algorithm will be welcome.

• COVID-19 tracing apps legal comparative analysis, technology benchmarking, novel solutions to preserve privacy and democracy, review of state of the art with critical comment.

• Solutions to hasten judiciary proceedings. After the collapse of hospitals, the collapse of courts has followed. Contributions for alleviating bottlenecks are welcome.

AICOL 2018 – JURIX 2018

Full-Day Workshop X Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and the Complexity of Legal Systems (AICOL), to be held at JURIX-2018

OBJECTIVES

The Workshop will be held on Dec. 12th at Jurix-2018. The aim of AICOL is to
develop models of legal knowledge more suitable to the complexity of contemporary legal
systems.
Papers are regularly published at LNAI Springer Series. See past editions at
AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems I, and II
AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems III,
AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems IV-V
AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems VI-VIII

The AICOL new volume is available here till Dec. 1, 2018:
https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-030-00178-0


The AICOL workshops welcome research in AI, political and legal theory, jurisprudence,
philosophy of technology and the law, social intelligence, NorMAS, to address the ways in
which the current information revolution affects basic pillars of today’s legal and political
systems, in such fields as e-democracy, e-government, e-justice, transnational governance,
Data Protection, and Security.
We are, indeed, dealing with changes and developments that occur at a rapid pace, as the
law transforms itself, in order to respond to and progress alongside with the advances of
technology. In addition to the traditional hard and soft law-tools of governance, such as
national rules, international treaties, codes of conduct, guidelines, or the standardization
of best practices, the new scenarios of the information revolution have increasingly
suggested the aim to govern current ICTs-driven societies through the mechanisms of
design, codes and architectures. AI approaches to the complexity of legal systems should
take into account how the regulatory tools of technology impact on canonical
interpretations of the law.
This Workshop is mainly addressed to computer scientists, legal theorists, social scientists,
and philosophers.

AICOL 2017

Half-Day Wokshop
VIII  Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and the Complexity of Legal Systems (AICOL), to be held at ICAIL-2017
The 16th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law, London, UK –  June 12, 2017, King’s College

OBJECTIVES

The Workshop will be held on June 12th at ICAIL-2017. The aim of AICOL is to
develop models of legal knowledge more suitable to the complexity of contemporary legal
systems.

Papers are regularly published at LNAI Springer Series. See past editions at
AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems I, and II
AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems III,
AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems IV-V.

The AICOL workshops welcome research in AI, political and legal theory, jurisprudence,
philosophy of technology and the law, social intelligence, nMAS,to address the ways in
which the current information revolution affects basic pillars of today’s legal and political
systems, in such fields as e-democracy, e-government, e-justice, transnational governance,
Data Protection, and Security.

We are, indeed, dealing with changes and developments that occur at a rapid pace, as the
law transforms itself, in order to respond to and progress alongside with the advances of
technology. In addition to the traditional hard and soft law-tools of governance, such as
national rules, international treaties, codes of conduct, guidelines, or the standardization
of best practices, the new scenarios of the information revolution have increasingly
suggested the aim to govern current ICTs-driven societies through the mechanisms of
design, codes and architectures.
AI approaches to the complexity of legal systems should
take into account how the regulatory tools of technology impact on canonical
interpretations of the law.
This Workshop is mainly addressed to computer scientists, legal theorists, social scientists,
and philosophers.

The AICOL workshops welcome research in AI, political and legal theory, jurisprudence, philosophy of technology and the law, social intelligence, nMAS, NLP, the Web of Data… to address the ways in which the current information revolution affects basic pillars of today’s legal and political systems, in such fields as e-democracy, e-government, e-justice, transnational governance, Data Protection, and Security.

We are, indeed, dealing with changes and developments that occur at a rapid pace, as the law transforms itself, in order to respond to and progress alongside with the advances of technology.
