  • Use of Informatics and AI in law
  • Legal issues on ubiquitous computing/multi-agent system/the Internet
  • Social implications of use of informatics and AI in law


Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style in a pdf form, which can be obtained from
