Global E-Discovery/E-Disclosure Workshop: A Pre-Conference Workshop at the 12th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law ___________________________________________________________________

Monday, June 8, 2009 -- Casa Convalescència, Barcelona, Spain



In 2007, participants from five continents gathered for the first DESI Workshop at the ICAIL 2007 conference in California. The workshop drew people together from multiple areas with an interest in considering the challenges presented by e-discovery, with a focus on dealing with large collections of electronically stored information (ESI) during litigations and regulatory investigations.     A second DESI workshop was held in June 2008 at University College London, UK, hosted by UCL Interaction Centre.


This year, the workshop will emphasize E-discovery and E-disclosure problems in an international context, such as information retrieval within both civil and common law jurisdictions, including dealing with text in non-host jurisdiction languages and in connection with cross-border litigation subject to varying rules of procedure and practice.

The workshop will be held on Monday, June 8, as a pre-conference workshop at the same location as the main ICAIL 2009 conference._

Here you can submit papers and find additional information (including dissemination after the event).

We are inviting the submission of short position papers and papers reporting original research (for the Call for papers please see the paper submission section). To encourage delegates to contribute position papers (at least), registration is limited to those submitting papers until May 4, 2009.

For additional background (with particular reference to work by The Sedona Conference_ and the legal track of the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC)) please see the DESI III background paper.
