AICOL 2021: AI Approaches to the Complexity of Legal Systems
The aim of AICOL is to develop models of legal knowledge more suitable to the complexity of contemporary legal systems. AICOL volumes are focused on AI, political and legal theory, jurisprudence, philosophy of technology and the law, social intelligence and NorMAS.

1st Workshop in Agent-based Modeling & Policy-Making (AMPM 2021)
Marked by an often naïvely mechanistic vision of reality, conventional approaches to policy modelling are incapable to capture the complex entanglement of countless interactions between technological, economic, social, and political systems. Furthermore, these approaches face persisting complementary challenges: formal and semi-formal validity of norms or policies; effectiveness; efficacy; etc. The question this workshop aims to bring to the foreground is what are the possible intersections between ABM (methods and tools) and policy-making, taking particularly into account normative standpoints and concerns. ABM calls for a “computation-enhanced regulatory empiricism”, exploiting computation to investigate factual underpinnings of the legal phenomenon, like the intricate networks of cognitive, social, technological, and legal mechanisms through which law emerges, is applied, and exerts its effects.

The First International Workshop on Intelligent Regulatory Systems
Regulatory systems (RSs) span across a broad range of industries, activities and behaviors governing how businesses should be operated. It is increasingly large and can encompass or connect with other systems ranging from traditional software systems to social networks, clouds, cyber-physical and safety-critical systems. Apart from the intrinsic complexity of integrated systems, the variability and dynamicity of surrounding environments also make it extremely challenging to ensure the correctness of such systems. Given many decades of research and development in RSs, various approaches and techniques have been developed and removed some of the barriers. However, less attention has been drawn to the analysis of system at runtime. Besides, the current practices also emphasis on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to automate processes — through the addition of more contexts and analytics — in a more advanced and intelligent ways. The IRS workshop aims at raising the awareness of approaches that can be used in providing intelligent support to regulatory systems, including both functional and non-functional properties, before and after executions. It is intended to be a venue to researchers and practitioners who are interested in methods and techniques for runtime verification and compliance checking, quantitative analysis (e.g. prediction and optimization of temporal performance) and their applications in experimental and industrial settings. While JURIX conference solicits conceptual and applied research, industrial case studies advancing the legal information and knowledge systems covering a range of foundations, methods, approaches, models, systems, and applications as well as legal and ethical issues pertaining the design, development and application of such systems. The topics covered by the IRS workshop will supplement the wider coverage of the topics relevant to the smart and intelligent systems that are subject to regulatory and legislative provisions, frameworks and standards.
EXplainable & Responsible AI in Law (XAILA@JURIX2021)
The workshop is a continuation of the successful XAILA 2018, 2019, 2020 and XAILA@ICAIL2021 editions which were co-located with the JURIX conferences in Groningen, Madrid and Brno, as well as with the ICAIL2021 in Sao Paulo, respectively.
Its aim is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and the presentation of research results in the broad field of legal XAI. This years’ edition is particularly focused on, although not limited to, the quickly developing idea of Responsible AI (RAI), which concerns the problems related to liability ascription in connection with the operation of intelligent systems and, in particular, the notion of accountability. We are interested to discuss how the understanding of the cognate concepts of intelligibility, comprehensiveness and transparency contribute to the abovementioned domains.
However, this debate may not be fruitfully continued without the context of logical, conceptual and technological aspects of XAI systems. Therefore, the workshop will sustain its interdisciplinary character.

CEILI Workshop on LEGAL DATA ANALYSIS
The Workshop on Legal Data Analysis intends to focus on representation, analysis and reasoning with legal data.

Workshop for advocates and court administrations
„Use of information technology in judicial processes”
In order to ensure the rule of law, it is important to develop the application of Legal Tech measures that allow increasing the availability of law, more efficient, more transparent court processes. In this workshop we will examine in detail the Lithuanian case.
The workshop aims to reveal the range of Legal Tech tools used in Lithuania, their changes and perspectives. Particular attention is paid to electronic process of law. We will discuss what improves the electronic process, how the law must interact with IT solutions.
It will involve the following subtopics:
- Development of IT in Judicial system
- Does electronic process of law improve court performance?
- What is e-justice? Is it just better IT?
- Electronic process of law
The workshop will include presentations on IT tools available in Lithuania for judicial processes and the news in this field, as well as promote the discussion on opportunities and risks of full e-process and how to achieve a better justice through IT means, as electronisation does not automatically lead to better justice.
Speakers: Infolex, National Court Administration, foreign guests
