Proposed Group: Computational Legal Decision Support Community Group [via Community and Business Groups]

The Computational Legal Decision Support Community Group has been proposed by Viorel Milea:

Open access of citizens to public information is fundamental for the effective functioning of (democratic) systems. Within the judicial branch this is often guarded both at local as well as at national level.

The Computational Legal Decision Support community group (CLaDS) considers: the data sources for the system, i.e., documents describing proceedings of lawsuits; scalability of a prototype, i.e., how the data is to be meaningfully represented within the system; distinctions in regard to (semantic) judicial vocabularies; applications outside the legal domain.

The group is in incipient phase and contributions are welcome. Our current focus is:
a) the exploration of availability of formal litigations
b) specification of the formal means of representation of lawsuit proceedings / legal knowledge.

A extensive proposal is available at . 

You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and people can join to begin work. In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account.

Once launched, the group will no longer be listed as "proposed"; it will be in the list of current groups.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
