*International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Big Data 
Technologies for Legal*

*Documents (AI4LEGAL)*

*Collocated with ISWC 2019, Auckland, New Zealand*

*http://kr.di.uoa.gr/#iswc19-workshop***

  AI4LEGAL aims to bring together Artificial Intelligence and Big Data 
researchers and practitioners to discuss issues related to the 
digitization of legislation and other legal documents in today’s 
interconnected world.

  The workshop will follow the traditional format (invited talks, 
presentations by paper authors, questions from the audience) but will 
encourage discussion and identification of open issues by giving enough 
time for questions after presentations, and by having a panel session 
covering this at the end of the day. The panel members will cover 
academia, industry and national legislation initiatives. The invited 
talks will also come from people leading important activities in the 
three pillars of digital legislation. It will also stress the 
presentation of demos by industry, government or academia on digital 
legislation systems (e.g., national platforms for legislation).
