Since the field of AI&Law is typically multi-disciplinary and evolves in a dynamic environment, some researchers may have undertaken challenging research concerning ideas of interest to the AI&Law community but that has not yet been completely evaluated. We welcome papers describing such ideas, so-called “positioning papers”. These papers should nevertheless meet academic standards, particularly addressing the problem(s), scientific and societal relevance, relation to prior research and literature, research methods and approaches. Positioning papers do not have to report actual results although preliminary results are appreciated.
