ReMeP 2019 – Where Research Meets Practice!
Digitalisation is a buzzword in today’s environment. But an annual investment of about 1 billion euros in LegalTech applications alone shows that it is more than a hype. It is a promising area for both research and practice.
Legal informatics itself is not new. It has been around for over 60 years. However, the need to streamline and digitalise processes to remain competitive has increased over the past few years.
While there is promising research activity, researchers often lack access to prospective users and real-life data to take their projects to the next level. And businesses often look for ways to digitalise specific tasks without knowing the state of research. And without knowing that there might already be a solution under development which can be tweaked to perfectly fit their needs. This is where ReMeP 2019 comes in: ReMeP 2019 will bring the two worlds together to the benefit of both sides.
Objectives of ReMeP 2019
The conference will connect researchers who wish to present their projects with businesses that are looking for solutions to digitalise certain tasks. There will be ample time to explore a number of interesting and promising legal informatics projects in depth.
Researchers will benefit from real-life feedback on their projects.
And businesses will have a chance to influence the further development of informatics solution and suggest improvements that make the application even more valuable for their businesses.
- Researchers and academics who are interested in connecting with and getting feedback from prospective users
- Businesses that are looking into IT solutions and want to influence project development to make the solutions even more useful
Structure of the Conference
Day 1: The first day will feature three interesting keynotes delivered by experts in their fields. We will also have a panel discussion and a fireside chat. In the evening, there will be a dinner reception by the Mayor of the City of Vienna.
