16 June 2017, Workshop on `MIning and REasoning with Legal texts' (MIREL 2017), London, England
The management of large repositories of norms, and the semantic access and reasoning to these norms are key challenges in Legal Informatics. As the law gets more complex, conflicting, and ever changing, more advanced methodologies are required for analyzing, representing and reasoning on legal knowledge.Specifically, it is necessary to address both conceptual challenges, such as the role of legal interpretation in mining and reasoning, and computational challenges, such as the handling of big legal data, and the complexity of regulatory compliance.
The aim of the MIREL-2017 workshop is to bridge the gap between the community working on legal ontologies and NLP parsers and the community working on reasoning methods and formal logic, towards these objectives described above.
We invite submissions up to 12 pages plus 3 additional pages for bibliography and appendix, in LNCS format. A selection of the best papers of the workshop will be published at LNAI Springer Series jointly with AICOL follow-up activities.
