Paper types:

In view of the novelty of this workshop focus, two primary types of papers are sought: Research and Ideation. Research papers should include some form of empirical evaluation, appropriate to the nature of the paper. Ideation papers are more similar to a Position paper in that experimental results are not required. However, while Ideation papers permit discussion of ideas that are not tested, they should be testable. An Ideation paper should contain concrete proposals on how the ideas would be tested and the significance or impact of doing so.

Submission guidelines:

Papers should be submitted in PDF format and be no longer than 8 pages. ACM style is encouraged; however, all styles will be accepted. Templates for ACM format for both Word and LaTex documents can be found at: Review is not blind, so papers should contain author information. Papers may be submitted to the following email address:, with the subject line “RESEARCH” or “IDEATION”, based on the submitted paper type. Other questions may be directed to the co-organizer email addresses listed under the Contacts tab. It is expected that at least one author of an accepted paper will attend the workshop.

Publication opportunities:

Papers accepted for presentation will be available online prior to the workshop. Selected papers will be proposed for publication in a special issue of the Artificial Intelligence and Law journal or as chapters in a book on AI and Intelligent Assistance for Legal Professionals in the Digital Workplace.
