Call for Participation
JURIX 2010
The 23rd International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems
University of Liverpool (U.K.), 15th-17th December 2010

For more than 20 years the Jurix Conference has provided an international forum for academics and practitioners in the field of legal informatics for sharing ideas and experiences on the representation of legal content and its representation in computer systems. The 23rd edition of Jurix will be hosted by the University of Liverpool.

Invited lectures

- prof. Wiebe van der Hoek, Agent ART group of the University of Liverpool:

"Reasoning about Normative Systems"
We develop a model of normative systems, where roughly speaking the model is a transition-based system and a norm is the result of flagging some of the transitions as undesirable. We then use a language that is close to that of Computation Tree Logic to reason about such systems. We demonstrate how our framework facilitates to reason about compliance, power, and goal directed behavior.

- John Sheridan, Head of e-Services in the Information Policy and Services Directorate of the UK's National Archives:

"Written Laws are Like Spiders Webs"
This talk examines the role and expectations of a public legislation service from the perspective of legislation.gov.uk. It will explore the motivations and needs of users, as well as some of the unique challenges associated with delivering legislation online. We will discuss the core elements of legislation.gov.uk that enable its use and exploitation as Linked Data and the role the statute book can play as a resource on the Linked Data web.
