The application deadline has been extended to 23 July 2010 for the 2010 LEX Summer School, to be held 6-11 September 2010 at the University of Bologna, Ravenna Campus, in Ravenna, Italy. The theme of the school is “Managing Legal Resources in the Semantic Web.”
Here is a description of the curriculum:
The school aims at providing knowledge of the most significant ICT standards emerging for legislation, judiciary, parliamentary and administrative documents. The course provides understanding of their impact in the different phases of the legislative and administrative process, awareness of the tools based on legal XML standards and of their constellations, and the ability to participate in the drafting and use of standard-compliant documents throughout law-making process. In particular we would like to create consciousness in the stakeholders in the legal domain about the benefits and the possibilities provided by the correct usage of Semantic Web technologies such as XML standards, ontologies, natural language processing techniques applied to legal texts, legal knowledge modelling and reasoning tools.
