Call for Papers: Workshop on Legal Informatics and Legal Information Technology, Poznan, Poland, April 28, 2009.

Submission deadline: Feb. 22, 2009
Here is a description:
The Legal Informatics and Legal Information Technology workshop held as part of the 12th International Conference on Business Information Systems. The BIS Conference is held annually and is a leading world conference in the area of Business Information Systems. Submissions are rigorously refereed. Accepted papers are published in the Springer’s Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing Series. After a long hiatus, the domain of Law and Information Technology is finally receiving much attention, not only from researchers, but also from practitioners. Hence there is a need for forums that discuss new research and innovative applications in Law and Information Technology.
The workshop is receptive to all papers dealing with any topic in the interdisciplinary domain of Law and Information Technology.
• Automated semantic indexing, information extraction and categorization of legal documents • Computational models for legal reasoning • Information Technology and Dispute Resolution • Information Technology and Crime Prevention • Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining in Law • Knowledge management in the legal domain • Legal argumentation • Legal discourse modeling and legal reasoning • Legal electronic agents • Legal Expert Systems • Legal ontologies and their creation and use • Legal reasoning and its computer representation • Natural language processing in law • Online Dispute Resolution • Question answering retrieval in law and governmental services • Risk management in law • Semantic Web technologies for law and e-government • Specialized knowledge representation and logics for law • Text mining and knowledge extraction in law
We realize that the deadline for submitting papers is drawing near, but thought perhaps there are some who have already prepared papers for other purposes that they would like to submit. Besides, the program looks interesting and timely.
