The MIREL (MIning and REasoning with Legal texts) project will create an international and inter-sectorial network to define legal frameworks and to develop tools for MIning and REasoning with Legal texts, with the aim of translating them into formal representations that can be used for querying norms, compliance checking, and decision support. MIREL finances staff exchange between SMEs to academies in order to create an inter-continental inter-disciplinary consortium in Law and Artificial Intelligence areas including Natural Language Processing, Computational Ontologies, Argumentation, and Logic&Reasoning. In particular, WP2 of MIREL mostly overlaps with the objectives of the ProLeMAS project. MIREL involves 16 international partners, at least one for each continent. 8 partners are European, including 3 industrial partners: APIS Hristovich EOOD, Nomotika S.R.L. and DLVSystem S.R.L..
I coordinated the writing of the project MIREL, by collecting the contributions of each partner in MIREL, revising them, and integrating them in a uniform and coherent project proposal. I am currently managing the activity of the project, by monitoring the secondment plans and following the research activities carried out therein.
MIREL has its own website: http://www.mirelproject.eu. Further details and the list of publications and events organized in the context of the project are available in MIREL's website.
