In conjunction with the 42st International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2023), Lisbon, Portugal, 6-9 November, 2023.
Law plays a crucial role in almost every aspect of our life, both public and private. Thousands of legal documents are constantly produced by institutional bodies, such as Parliaments and Courts, which constitute a prominent source of information and knowledge for judges, lawyers, and other professionals involved in legal decision-making. To cope with growing volume, complexity, and articulation of legal documents as well as to foster digital justice and digital law, increasing effort is being devoted to digital transformation processes in the legal domain.
Conceptual modeling plays a crucial role in this scenario, to formalize features and nature of terminology used in legal documents and to promote the development and the adoption of legal ontologies, shared vocabularies, and open linked data about legislation, case-law, and other relevant legal information. Furthermore, advanced functionalities for legal data and process modeling and management are advocated, embracing modern technologies like Semantic Web, NLP, AI, to enable semantic text search and exploration, legal knowledge extraction and formalization, legal decision-making and legal analytics.
This workshop aims to constitute a meeting venue for a variety of researchers involved in digital justice and digital law, originating a rich community crossing different disciplines besides computer science, like law, legal informatics, management, economics and social sciences. The workshop will provide an opportunity to share, discuss, and identify new approaches and solutions for modeling, analysis, formalization, and interpretation of legal data and related processes.
We solicit submissions related to digital justice and digital law in general, also bringing out modeling and conceptualization features; topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
JUSMOD invites submissions of high-quality papers describing original and unpublished research contributions.
The paper submission formats are:
The authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Papers must be submitted as PDF files via https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=er2023 (JUSMOD 2023 track).
Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the conference and at least one author is required to register to the conference.
The proceedings of JUSMOD will be published in a volume of Springer LNCS.
The organization of a journal special issue about the workshop topics is currently under consideration. The authors of workshop accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended contribution to the special issue (if confirmed).
Please, write to email@example.com for any question.
