The Multilingual Workshop on AI & Law Research intends to reach out to non-English speaking
communities worldwide, in particular Spanish and Portuguese, to present and discuss on-going
research on the main following topics, but not limited to, both from a theoretical and practical
point of view:
Legal data science applications, also in a multilingual environment,
advanced legal search engines and legal information systems
advanced applications in e-justice, e-government, e-commerce and e-democracy
legal knowledge systems and formal models of legal systems (logic applied to legal
reasoning, formal models of probability etc.)
discovery of electronically stored legal information (e-discovery)
machine learning and data mining for legal applications
the computational study of legal reasoning and argumentation
applications of AI and automated reasoning for the legal domain
“High-volume” applications of rule-based systems
We invite researchers to submit their original papers (drafts 4-10 pages, final papers: 8 pages,
2400 words) and extended English abstracts (2 pages, 600 words) on these themes. The
submission language can be Spanish, Portuguese, German, and English. Other languages e.g.
Arabic, Chinese, German, French, Japanese, Russian, Hindi etc. are admissible subject to a
sufficient numbers of submissions and a panel organiser fluent in this language and English. In
any case, a submission must also be supplemented with an extended English abstract. In case of
acceptance, both the paper and the extended English abstract will be included in the workshop
materials. The presentation can be given in the chosen language but presentation materials, in
particular slides, have to be available in English in order to allow the English speaking
community to get a good understanding of the research results. Pre-prepared audios and videos in
English are also helpful. Interpretation will be available for all sessions.
