Many legal informatics experts are looking forward to ReMeP 2019 – here’s what they say:

ReMeP 2019 is extremely helpful for the community to both connect and cooperate on a global level in order to develop legal informatic services.

Franz Kummer

I have always been fascinated by knowledge representation and semantic networks. No doubt, they are highly relevant in legal applications. And ensuring security for these applications is equally important. I am sure, we’ll hear a lot about that at ReMeP 2019.

Professor A Min Tjoa

Vienna University of Technology

ReMeP 2019 will foster the international business ecosystem of legal informatics services by connecting key stakeholders and stimulating innovative ways for future collaborations.
