Call for papers: Special issue in honor of Jon Bing, of the journal: Artificial Intelligence and Law

A call for papers has been issued for a special issue in honor of the late Jon Bing, of the journal Artificial Intelligence and Law.

The submission deadline is 31 March 2015.

Here are excerpts from the call:

[…] At the Law Faculty of the University of Oslo, Jon [Bing] co-founded – as early as 1970 – the Norwegian Research Centre for Computers and Law (NRCCL), and worked tirelessly over the years to establish it as a leading international research hub. It was characteristic of Jon’s commitment to an interdisciplinary approach, and further evidence of the breadth of his knowledge and understanding of the field, that the many researchers who visited NRCCL included most of the key figures in the development of the field of Artificial Intelligence and Law. Together with some of his NRCCL colleagues, Jon participated in several of the International Conferences on AI & Law, and co-chaired the organization of ICAIL 1999, held at the University of Oslo.

It is therefore highly appropriate that the editors of Artificial Intelligence and Law have decided to publish a special issue of the journal in Jon’s honour. Submissions are sought of papers that either discuss aspects of Jon’s own contributions to AI and Law, or else address issues related to Jon’s work in that field. Given the very wide range of Jon’s interests, the proposed remit of the special issue is suitably broad in scope. Authors should follow the instructions for document preparation and submission described at

The deadline for submissions will be March 31 2015. The provisional plan is to publish the selected papers in the fourth issue of the 2015 volume. The guest editors of the special issue will be Emily Weitzenboeck (Senior Associate, Wikborg, Rein & Co. Advokatfirma DA), Tobias Mahler (Associate Professor, NRCCL) and Andrew Jones (Emeritus Professor, King’s College London, and an associate member of NRCCL 1986-2001) […]
