Proceedings of SEMANTiCS 2020 EU will be published open access by Springer LNCS.

Globalisation and digitization have put a lot of pressure on legal professionals and have increased the number of cross-border, cross-jurisdictional activities of both individuals and businesses alike, bringing with it the need for innovative LegalTech solutions that can support legal professionals, governments and administrations as well as NGOs and even individual citizens across Europe. From a societal perspective, there is a need to grant citizens more control and transparency with respect to the processing of their personal data. From a business perspective, there is a need for tools and techniques that make daily work more efficient and effective and drive new business models, so that society as a whole can benefit from new capabilities that AI and other technologies can provide despite of a more and more complex legal environment. Towards this end, the LegalTech sub topic aims to explore legal tech mechanisms, processes and methodologies that are now critically needed to support the next generation of semantic applications. We welcome contributions both from academia as well as industry-focused case-studies and applications.
