The first JSAI International Symposia on AI (JSAI-isAI) will take place
in Tokyo on November 19 (thu) and 20 (fri), 2009. JSAI-isAI is an event
that hosts several international workshops at the same location. This
is in succession to the international workshops co-located with JSAI
annual conferences since 2001. The JSAI-isAI 2009 committee has selected
the following three outstanding workshops.

For those who are interested in participating and attending one of those
workshops, please visit the web page of each workshop and contact the
organizer(s). We are looking forward to meeting you all at JSAI-isAI


  • JSAI-isAI hosts an informal reception at 16:30-17:00 on 11/19(thu) at the workshop site.
  • Springer formally approved JSAI-isAI09 post-proceeding by
    LNCS. Selected papers and invited papers will be included in the
  • Onsite registration is available!!


Satllite Event

Note that this workshop is hosted by JSAI-isAI, but takes place as a separate event.

Workshop 01:

Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics 6 (LENLS 6)

LENLS is an annual international workshop focusing on formal
semantics and pragmatics. This year we especially welcome submissions
related to the interplay between logic, philosophy of language, and
formal semantics and pragmatics.

Abstract submissions due: August 15, 2009

Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2009

Camera ready due: October 15, 2009

Workshop Chair:Daisuke Bekki (Ochanomizu University)

Workshop 02:

Third International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2009)

Juris-informatics is a new research area which studies legal issues
from the perspective of informatics. The purpose of this workshop is to
discuss both the fundamental and practical issues for juris-informatics
among people from the various backgrounds such as law, social science,
information and intelligent technology, logic and philosophy, including
the conventional “AI and law” area.

Submissions due: September 14, 2009

Notification of acceptance: October 5, 2009

Camera ready due: October 12, 2009

Workshop Chair:Seiichiro Sakurai, Meiji Gakuin University

Workshop 03:

Third International Workshop on Knowledge Collaboration in Software Development (KCSD 2009)

The immense knowledge required for the creation of complex software
systems is widely distributed among many stakeholders, and the success
of software development hinges on how the stakeholders are able to share
and combine their knowledge through cooperation, collaboration and
co-construction. The goal of the workshop is to bring researchers and
practitioners together to discuss theoretical, social, technological and
practical issues of understanding and supporting knowledge
collaboration during software construction process.

Submissions due: September 18, 2009

Notification of acceptance: October 12, 2009

Camera ready due: October 30, 2009

Organizers: Masao Ohira (NAIST), Yunwen Ye (SRA Inc.)

Satellite Event 01:

Sixth Workshop on Learning with Logics and Logics for Learning (LLLL2009)

Logic is one of the mathematical methods of representing data as well
as rules in Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery. Recently some
methods are developed based on algebraic concepts, e.g. closed sets, for
the aim. In the converse, Machine Learning procedures are found to
provide procedural semantics to algebraic, and logical inference. The
aim of LLLL is to bring together researchers who are interested in both
of the areas of machine learning and computational logic, and to have
intensive discussions on various relations between the two with making
their interchange more active.
