November 13 - 15, 2021

New Information

This website is open! (May 31, 2021)


Aims and Scope

Juris-informatics is a new research area that studies legal issues from the perspective of informatics. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss both the fundamental and practical issues among people from various backgrounds such as law, social science, information and intelligent technology, logic and philosophy, including the conventional "AI and law" area. We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies, and applications on juris-informatics.
