Pictures from the workshop

The Eighth International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL) will take place from May 21-25, 2001 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The Conference is the premier international gathering of scholars, researchers, and practitioners interested in AI as it relates to law. The Conference includes a new one-day practical workshop called "Legal Knowledge Systems in Action: Practical AI in Today's Law Offices" that will be held on May 21, 2001.

The aim of this workshop is to create a forum for the practical discussion of real-world AI and knowledge management applications by both researchers and practitioners: those who research the possible applications of AI in the legal field, those who actually develop AI tools for legal practice, and those who use (or might use) them. The workshop will include presentations of papers, demonstrations of tools, and a panel discussion with audience participation. We would particularly like to invite researchers in the field of AI and law, lawyers, publishers, companies that develop specific tools for law practice, consultants, law firm CIOs and law firm administrators to contribute, participate and attend.

Call for papers

We invite interested authors to submit papers on topics related to practical AI applications, including description of applications, requirements for such applications, legal knowledge management models or tools, knowledge based applications enhancing legal e-business and e-commerce, and related topics.

Please note that because the workshop focuses on practical applications, we are not requiring that papers be "academic" or "formal" or meet any particular format or length guidelines as required for papers submitted to the main Conference. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the workshop.

Persons interested in making presentations without submitting a paper are encouraged to submit a "statement of interest."

Important dates:

Deadline for submission of papers and statements of interest: March 1, 2001
Notification of acceptance: April 1, 2001
