It isn’t easy to innovate in governance.  Technology is creating new expectations for how citizens engage with their world.  Governments must adapt to keep pace or risk the dissatisfaction of those they represent.

The submission deadlines have been extended for RuleML 2014 Special Track: Legal rules and Norms:   http://ruleml2014.vse.cz/legal-rules-and-norms

The new abstracts submission deadline is: 14 April 2014.

The new paper submission deadline is: 22 April 2014.

The conference is scheduled to be held 18-20 August 2014 in Prague.

Professor Dr. +Monica Palmirani and Dr.  +Guido Governatori are organisers of this special track.

Description:

'A norm, following Kelsen’s definition is a mandatory command concerning rights or duties endorsed by an organization that has the power to impose these rules to addressees. A norm is usually expressed in writing using legal texts or in an oral way (e.g., a social norm, an oral contract) or in other representations (e.g., symbolic road signs). This legal source is the main inspiration for the legal rules. Legal rules are interpretations of one or more norms formalized using logical rules in the form of antecedent and consequent. It is mostly the interpretation of the legal source and it is often a normalization of the convoluted and technical legal language. This track wants to investigate the complex relationship among norms, legal sources, interpretation, argumentation and legal rules.

'Topics:

Methodologies for modeling regulations using both ontologies and rules
Defeasibility and norms: modeling rule exceptions and priority relations among rules
The relationship between rules and legal argumentation schemes
Rule based inference mechanism for legal reasoning
E-contracting and automated negotiations with rule-based declarative strategies
Business Process Compliance
LegalRuleML formalization
Isomorphism principle in legal rule modelling
The relationship between norms, legal source and rules in the interpretation [...] '
