The second JSAI International Symposia on AI (JSAI-isAI) will take
place in Tokyo on November 18 (thu) and 19 (fri), 2010. 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 2010 committee has
selected the following four 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 2010.


Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics 7 (LENLS 7)
Fourth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2010)
First International Workshop on Advanced Methodologies for Bayesian Networks (AMBN 2010)
International Workshop on Innovating Service Systems (ISS2010)

Workshop 01: Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics 7 (LENLS 7)

LENLS is an annual international workshop focusing on formal
semantics, formal pragmatics and related fields. This year we especially
welcome submissions related to the “Formal Structures of Salience”.
Salience is a concept with broad application in linguistics and
philosophy; in recent years, it has played a role in the analysis of
phenomena including focus, particles, and anaphora resolution within
linguistics, and in philosophy it has been used in analyses of various
kinds of context dependency (e.g. domain restriction and vagueness), as
well as in the analysis of convention. However, in many cases, the
concept of salience is left as a primitive. Submissions discussing
foundational issues in the understanding of salience would be welcomed.
We especially hope for contributions with a formal orientation.

Workshop 02: Fourth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2010)

Aims and scope: 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. We solicit
unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on

Workshop 03: First International Workshop on Advanced Methodologies for Bayesian Networks (AMBN 2010)

Over the last few decades, Bayesian Networks (BNs) have become an
increasingly popular AI approach. In this workshop we explore
methodologies for enhancing the effectiveness of BNs including modeling,
reasoning, model selection, logic-probability relations, and causality.
The exploration of methodologies is complemented discussions of
practical considerations for applying BNs in real world settings,
covering concerns like scalability, incremental learning,
parallelization, and so on.

Workshop Chairs: Maomi Ueno (The University of Electro-Communications), Takashi Isozaki (Sony CSL, Inc.)

Workshop 04: International Workshop on Innovating Service Systems (ISS2010)

Service science has been raised, and coming to be established as a
research domain all over the world. This workshop in Tokyo is motivated
by the systems-design dimension of the service science. We aim to share
and discuss a progressive vision to develop methods for innovating
systems of service resources where novel values are created and supplied
