IRIS 2020: The Conference Programme

Every year in February, numerous experts gather in Salzburg to participate in the International Legal Informatics Symposium IRIS.

In 2019, IRIS will take place from 21 to 23 February under the general theme Internet of Things (further key areas are LegalTech, Blockchain and Smart Contracts as well as Data Protection). A detailed programme is available for download here.

IRIS in Jusletter IT

Since 2009, a special issue of Jusletter IT has been published at the same time as the conference. This issue is the digital version of the conference proceedings. Various contributions could only be published digitally.

In 2018, the older conference proceedings of the years 2000–2008 were also fed into Jusletter IT. Thus, the Jusletter IT archive includes all IRIS conference proceedings.

All issues are listed here.

The IRIS Conference Proceedings

The IRIS conference proceedings are additionally printed by Editions Weblaw.

Committed to «media-neutral publishing», the conference proceedings and the special issue in Jusletter IT are produced in one step.

All conference proceedings are available in our Shop.
