19th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law - ICAIL 2023
19 to 23 June 2023 | University of Minho, Braga - Portugal
Since 1987, the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL) has been the foremost international conference addressing research in Artificial Intelligence and Law. It is organized biennially under the auspices of the International Association for Artificial Intelligence and Law (IAAIL), and in cooperation with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). The conference proceedings are published by ACM. We invite submissions of papers along a regular and three special tracks, technology demonstrations, as well as proposals for workshops and tutorials.
- University of Minho - Law School, JusGov - Research Center for Justice and Governance, Informatics Departments at Engineering School, Centro Algoritmi
- LASI - Intelligent Systems Associated Laboratory
We invite submission of original papers on Artificial Intelligence & Law, covering foundations, methods, tools, systems and applications. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Argument mining on legal texts
* Classification and automatic summarization of legal text
* Computational methods for negotiation and contract formation
* Computer-assisted dispute resolution
* Computable representations of legal rules and domain specific languages for the law
* Decision support systems in the legal domain
* Deep learning on data and text from the legal domain
* Dialog systems in the legal domain
* e-discovery and e-disclosure
* e-government, e-democracy and e-justice
* Ethical, legal, fairness, accountability, and transparency subjects arising from the use of AI systems in legal practice, access to justice, compliance, and public administration
* Explainable AI for legal practice, data, and text analytics
* Formal and computational models of legal reasoning (e.g., argumentation, case-based reasoning), including deontic logics
* Formal and computational models of evidential reasoning
* Formal models of norms and norm-governed systems
* Information extraction from legal databases and texts
* Information retrieval, question answering, and literature recommendation in the legal domain
* Intelligent legal tutoring systems
* Intelligent support systems for forensics
* Interdisciplinary applications of legal informatics methods and systems
* Knowledge acquisition techniques for the legal domain, including related applications of natural language processing, argument, and data mining
* Knowledge representation, knowledge engineering, and ontologies in the legal domain
* Legal design involving AI techniques
* Machine learning and data analytics applied to the legal domain
* Natural language processing of legal text, including law-specific standard NLP tasks (e.g., Named Entity Recognition, Semantic Role Labeling, Translation, etc.)
* Normative reasoning by autonomous agents
* Open and linked data in the legal domain
* Smart contracts and application of blockchain in the legal domain
* Visualization techniques for legal information and data
ICAIL is keen to broaden its scope to include topics of growing importance and to establish links to neighboring disciplines. In addition to the regular paper track, ICAIL 2023 will feature several special tracks.
Workshops & tutorials
ICAIL 2023 will include workshops and tutorials on Monday, June 19 and Friday, June 23. Tutorials should cover a broad topic of relevance to the AI and Law community and should have one or more designated organizers/speakers. Workshops are intended for informal discussion and should have one or more designated organizers as well as an organizing and programming committee. Proposals must contain enough information to permit evaluation on the basis of importance, quality, and community interest. Proposals should be 2 to 4 pages.
ICAIL 2023 will feature a Doctoral Consortium aiming to promote the exchange of ideas from PhD researchers in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Law and to provide them with an opportunity to interact and receive feedback from leading scholars and experts in the field. Details about the consortium’s program and timeline are published in a separate call on the conference website.
IAAIL has established three different awards, to be presented at the conference banquet.
* Donald H. Berman Award for Best Student Paper | The best student paper award is in memory of Donald H. Berman, a professor of law at Northeastern University, who was a co-founder of the Artificial Intelligence and Law journal. The award consists of a cash gift and free attendance at ICAIL 2023. For a paper to be considered for the award, the student author(s) should be clearly designated as such when the paper is submitted using the facility provided by the submission system, and any non-student co-authors should provide a statement by email to the Program Chair that affirms that the paper is primarily student work.
* Carole Hafner Award for Best Paper | The best paper award is given in memory of Carole Hafner, an associate professor of computer science at Northeastern University. She was one of the founders of the ICAIL conference and a co-founding editor of the journal Artificial Intelligence and Law.
* Peter Jackson Award for Best Innovative Application Paper | The best innovative application paper award is dedicated to the memory of Peter Jackson, Thomson Reuters’ Chief Research Scientist, who was a strong supporter of the ICAIL conferences and a significant contributor to the development of advanced technologies in AI and Law.
