About AICOL VI – Jurix2015

VI  Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and the Complexity of Legal Systems (AICOL), to be held at JURIX-2015, Universidade do Minho, Braga, Portugal, on December 9th

One Full-Day Wokshop

Co-located with the JURIX 2015, the 28th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems
9th-11th December 2015
University of Minho, Braga, Portugal

Organized by
Pompeu Casanovas (pompeucasanovas@gmail.com)
Monica Palmirani (monica.palmirani@unibo.it)
Paulo Novais (pjon@di.uminho.pt )

The Workshop will be held on December 9th at JURIX-2015. The aim of AICOL is to develop models of legal knowledge more suitable to the complexity of contemporary legal systems. See more about AICOL at http://www.aicol.eu/.

Papers are regularly published at LNAI Springer Series. See past editions at AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems I, and II and 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, 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. 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. But it is addressed to the students of the Erasmus Mundus Doctorate on Law, Science and Technology ( http://www.last-jd.eu/) as well. Position papers that will be especially encouraged.
