IX Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and the Complexity of Legal Systems (AICOL), to be held at JURIX-2017 , 13 December, Luxembourg


The Workshop will be held on Dec. 13th at Jurix-2017. The aim of AICOL is to
develop models of legal knowledge more suitable to the complexity of contemporary legal
Papers are regularly published at LNAI Springer Series. See past editions at

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, 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.
