  • Workshop 1 : Eleventh International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2018)

Describe objective, 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 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 We solicit unpublished papers on theories, technologies and applications on juris-informatics.

Tsutomu Fujinami, Tokyo Institute of Technology

  • Workshop 2:Aritificial Intelligence of and for Business (AI-Biz 2018)

The objective of this workshop is to foster the concepts and techniques of“Business Intelligence (BI).” in Artificial Intelligence. BI should include
such cutting-edge techniques as data science, agent-based modelling, complex adaptive systems, and IoT. The application areas include but not limited to business management, finance engineering, service sciences, manufacturing engineering, and so on.
The basic idea of BI would enhance the capabilities of conventional techniques in business domain, however, so far, we have not discussed BI concepts deeply in artificial intelligence literature. We would like to focus on BI topics to the issues of firms and organizations for getting more benefits on interactions with human- and computer- mixed systems.
The main purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss important research questions and practical challenges in Business Intelligence, Business Informatics, Data Analysis and Agent-based Modelling to exchange latest results, to join efforts in solving the common challenges. It is also to establish an effective communication between researchers and developers involved in the both areas. The workshop will provide opportunities for the participants to exchange new ideas and experiences to establish research or business network and to find global partners for future collaboration.

The topics include but not limited to:
Data Mining, Text Mining and Data Analysis
Empirical Analysis on Managerial Decision Making
Agent-Based Computational Economics & Finance
Agent-Based Game, Serious Game and Business Game
Agent-Based Economics
Agent-Based Policy Making
Gaming Simulation on Social and Business Problems
Issues and Case Studies on Business and Finance Problems
Knowledge Management
Information Security
Collective Intelligence and Human Computation on Social Problems
Participatory Design and Simulation on Social Problems
Simulators for Macroeconomic Policy
Valuation and Asset Pricing
Corporate Governance and Regulation
Discrete Choice Models in Economics and Management Sciences
Emergence and Dynamics of Norms and Conventions
Financial Market models and Auction
Dynamics of Complex, Social and Economic Networks

  • Workshop 3 : Skill Sciences 2018

Human skills involve well-attuned perception and fine motor control, often accompanied by thoughtful planning. The involvement of body, environment, and tools mediating them makes the study of skills unique among researches of humanintelligence. The symposium invites researchers who investigate human skills and provides them with a place for exchange and discussion. The study of skills requires various disciplines to
collaborate with each other because the value of skills is not determined solely in terms of efficiency, but calls for consideration of quality. Quality resides in person and often
needs to be transferred through apprentice systems. The procedure of validation is strict, but more complex than scientific activities, where everything needs to be described by referring to data. We are keen to discussing the theoretical foundations of
skill science as well as practical and engineering issues in the study.

  • Workshop 4 : Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics 15 (LENLS 15)

LENLS is an annual international workshop on formal syntax, semantics and pragmatics. We invite submissions on topics in formal syntax, model-theoretic and/or proof-theoretic semantics, computational semantics, game-theoretic/bayesian approaches to pragmatics, non-classical logic and its relation to natural language, and formal philosophy of language.

Co-Chair :
Daisuke Bekki, Ochanomizu University/National Institute of Informatics
Koji Mineshima, Ochanomizu University
Eric McCready, Aoyama Gakuin University


  • Workshop 5 :  Second International Workshop on SCIentific DOCument Analysis (SCIDOCA 2018)

Recent proliferation of scientific papers and technical documents has become an obstacle to efficient information acquisition of new information in various fields. It is almost impossible for individual researchers to check and read all related documents. Even retrieving relevant documents is becoming harder and harder. This workshop gathers all the researchers and experts who are aiming at scientific document analysis from various perspectives, and invite technical paper presentations and system demonstrations that cover any aspects of scientific document analysis.

Yuji Matsumoto, Nara Institute of Science and Technology/Riken AIP

  • Workshop 6 : Intelligent Data Analytics and Applications

This workshop aims to bring researchers and practitioners across different artificial intelligent research and application communities together in a unique forum to present and exchange ideas, results, and experiences in AI technologies and applications.
It welcomes researchers and practitioners to share the latest breakthroughs in analysing data for applications in different domains by using AI techniques. These could include data science studies, data analytics applications and systems, and simulation and visualization using massive data. This workshop will focus on application inspired novel findings, methods, systems and solutions which demonstrate the impact of data analytics by artificial intelligence.
