Dr. Gioele Barabucci, Professor Dr. Angelo Di Iorio, Francesco Poggi, and Professor Dr. Fabio Vitali, presented a paper entitled Integration of legal datasets: from meta-model to implementation, at IIWAS 2013: International Conference on Information Integration and Web-based Applications & Services, 2-4 December 2013 in Vienna, Austria.
Here is the abstract:
This paper presents ALLOT, an ontology based on Akoma Ntoso to describe entities referenced in legal documents. The focus is on the use of ALLOT to bridge heterogeneous knowledge bases. We present some experiments in integrating heterogeneous legal datasets through ALLOT. We also discuss the lessons learned in the development of this ontology, lessons that can highlight some issues with the current landscape of legal formats and data.
