De jongste loot aan het concept van Science with Industry, is de Workshop ICT with Industry. De uitdaging die de Immigratie- en Naturalisatiedienst IND indiende samen met de Belastingdienst en het Leibniz Center for Law, leverde na een week al een concreet resultaat op. In hun streven naar betere, snellere en transparantere beslissingen, zoeken de IND en de Belastingdienst naar oplossingen voor het semiautomatisch behandelen van grote aantallen zaken.

In cooperation with the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (DTCA) and the Duth Immigration Services (IND) the Leibniz Center is organizing a National Science Foundation (NWO) sponsored workshop on formal analysis of law.
The Leibniz Center for Law, together with the Institute for Information Law (IViR) and international partners, obtained a European grant for the project OpenLaws.eu. Of the 96 proposals submitted, OpenLaws.eu finished first. The aim of the project is to use innovative resources to make law and legal information more accessible by linking and enrich these with metadata. The Leibniz Center for Law leads the consortium. Technical partners are the Fachhochschule Salzburg, Alpenite (IT) and BY WASS (Aus). IViR, together with Sussex University and the London School of Economics and Politics are responsible for the legal and economic aspects.

The Leibniz Center was involved in building the web site hoelangwerkloos.nl (“How long unemployed”) together with the Hugo Sinzheimner Institute of our University.
People can use it to calculate how many days on average an employee with certain qualifications will be unemployed after losing his job. It also gives the chance the employee has to find new payed work. This is of importance for the estimated damages that someone can claim after unjustified dismissal.

“The Network Institute’s research mission is to come to a better scientific understanding of the emerging networked world in all its technological, economic and social aspects, and to help further its proper development.
The Network Institute brings together researchers from many different academic disciplines, including information systems, communication science, computer science, business and management research, knowledge management, marketing and strategy, economics, artificial intelligence, mathematics, and organization science.”
Collaborating with the Network Institute will allow the Leibniz Center to tap into a rich source of likeminded researchers, and at the same time brings the challenges of the field of AI and Law to the attention of a multidisciplinary research network.
For more information, please contact Rinke Hoekstra.

The TRIAS Telematica project, coordinated by the Leibniz Center for Law, has been selected as one of the five best e-Learning practices in Europe. The methods used to arrive at this conclusion were a combination of desk research, reports and project conclusions deriving from five years, thematic discussions and the validation of conclusions and recommendations in two thematic seminars in Sofia and Copenhagen.
The aims of TRIAS Telematica are to identify the training needs of change agents, process innovators in government agencies who request rethinking of eGovernment services and to create an infrastructure for the exchange of best practices, the exchange of project leaders and students, and the exchange of qualified people among European countries.
For this purpose an e-Learning environment was developed using semantic wiki and various training methods including a simulation game.
A successor project is being planned as well as a second summer course.
For more information on the project see: http://www.triastelematica.org/

The Leibniz Center for Law is part of the consortium that won the open tender for the
development of the national online all-in-one service for environmental permits
(Landelijke Voorziening Omgevingsloket, or LVO) in the Netherlands.
We are pleased to announce the release of the LKIF core ontology of basic legal concepts. This ontology was developed within the ESTRELLA project to provide a standard vocabulary for legal reasoning services on the Semantic Web, and especially the Legal Knowledge Interchange Format (LKIF).
The LKIF ontology is inspired by the commonsense orientation of the (discontinued) LRI Core ontology effort. It consists of 14 ontology modules, describing concepts that range from general concepst such as time, place, change and process to the concepts most central to the legal field such as actions, transactions, beliefs, intentions, expressions and norms.
The ontology can be loaded directly into your favorite OWL Ontology editor from: http://www.estrellaproject.org/lkif-core/lkif-core.owl
