Workshop on Formal Argument and Evidential Discovery

Giovanni Sartor, Scott Brewer, and I plan to organize a workshop on "formal argument and evidential discovery," a workshop to be held in conjunction with ICAIL 2013 [International Conference on AI & Law]. The workshop will be held either in Paris or in Portugal in June 2013.

The proposed workshop deals with whether and the extent to which factual discovery differs from factual proof. The topic invites discussion of matters such as (i) abductive inference, (ii) the role of intuition, hunch, and subjective judgment in the process of discovery; and (iii) the role if any of formal argument (including, e.g., statistical methods) in discovery.

If you are interested in the above topic and the workshop, please get in touch with Giovanni, Scott, or me.
