Artificial Intelligence and Law (AIL)

Artificial intelligence and law is a field of study and research, which has been established since long and deals with all the possible applications of artificial intelligence to the world of law. Traditionally, this field has mainly concerned the forms of legal reasoning, the formation of legal knowledge, and the decision-making processes inherent to the legal domain. However, recent developments in artificial intelligence have also affected this area of study and research. Increasingly, artificial intelligence is no longer defined with close reference to the notion of human intelligence, consciousness, and alike, but is considered as a growing resource of interactive, autonomous, and self-learning agency. As a smart form of agency, AI has even a greater potential to affect and reshape law, while raising legal, technical, and ethical issues, which affect human autonomy, self-determination, and responsibility. Furthermore, since AI is gradually more fueled by data, these issues are predominantly rooted in data collection, retention and management. This raises key questions and challenges that require full examination and discussion, since they deeply affect the future trends of law.

Paper Submission Instructions

All accepted papers will be published by Springer in a volume of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) corresponding to the proceedings of the 19th EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence, EPIA 2019.

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. Papers should not exceed twelve (12) pages in length and must adhere to the formatting instructions of the conference. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. The reviewing process is double blind, so authors should remove names and affiliations from the submitted papers, and must take reasonable care to assure anonymity during the review process. References to own work may be included in the paper, as long as referred to in the third person. Acceptance will be based on the paper’s significance, technical quality, clarity, relevance and originality. All accepted papers must be presented orally the conference by one of the authors and at least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.

All papers should be submitted in PDF format through the EPIA 2019 EasyChair submission page. Prospective authors should select the thematic track to which their paper is to be submitted.
