Papers should not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere except as a submission to JURISIN 2010. The double submission policy with JURISIN 2010 is as follows:

Papers being submitted both to JURISIN 2010 and JURIX 2010 must note this on the title page.
A paper to be published and presented at JURIX 2010 must be withdrawn from JURISIN 2010 and vice versa according to the choice by the authors.
If the authors do not follow this double submission policy, the paper by the authors will not be included in the proceedings of JURIX 2010.
Deadline for paper submission is September 5th, 2010. Papers should be submitted through the Jurix Easychair system, using PDF, PostScript or Word format, and should not exceed 10 pages when formatted using the styles and guidelines in the Instructions for Authors. Author instructions and style sheets can be found at the IOS Press site.

The conference proceedings will be published by IOS Press (Amsterdam, Berlin, Oxford, Tokyo, Washington DC) in their series “Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications” before the Conference.

The Jurix conferences are held under the auspices of the Dutch Foundation for Legal Knowledge Systems (

Proposals for tutorials and workshops are invited and strongly encouraged. All proposals, including a short description of the topic, should be sent to the Program Chair by email.
