Call for papers
On the occasion of the Insert Law to Continue - 2019 Edition, a call for papers was opened for the following topics:
PARTICIPATION TO LAW MAKING AND CREATION OF DIGITAL CONTENTS
These are topics in which digital innovation is already deploying its effects. Direct democracy does have the possibility to use new digital tools for the expression of vote, which allow a greater involvement to the political choice. New ways for computing majorities guarantee a better respect of the constituent’s choice. Also ODR and online legal advice are fields in which the research is moving to the operational phase: for instance, the digital legal advisor ROSS, the fair algorithms, which turns even the administration of justice towards privatization’s horizons. Here many things change in the profession of lawyer, who will have to interact online, create his/her working tools and make them his/her own.
e-governance, e-democracy, e-justice, online dispute resolution (ODR), algorithmic dispute resolution, online legal mediation, online law firm, predictivity and predictability of the justice, legal design e legal visualization.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND ROBOTICS
This part should be dedicated mainly to new realities, especially robotic ones, which are entering the everyday world and with which we are destined to interact. From drones to self driving vehicles, from company robots to those working in the tertiary sector. They redraw the map of social actors, inter-individual collaboration and work. The regulation of cooperation and collaboration is traditionally entrusted to civil and commercial law institutions, which will have to be redesigned for this new human social reality.internet of things, robot law, artificial intelligence and law, machine learning, liability and automation in socio-technical systems

SECURITY AND PROTECTION OF DIGITAL DATA: ISSUES AND NEW LEGAL PERSPECTIVES
In the middle of this sector there is the Gordian knot that combines digital communication with its insecurity. The control of digital information goes hand in hand with the possibility of inter-individual and social control and domination. Enough said that the new ways of explicating war, in military studies, have as their cornerstone the dominion over information. These aspects have two fronts of analysis. The former concerns the social effects of this uncontrollability, and the possible legal instruments to protect the community. See, for instance, digital signature, certified electronic mail, blockchain, or in general encryption. The latter regards the exploitation for economic purposes of this characteristic and the social and legal changes deriving from it, such as, for instance, IoT, the diffused and pervasive data collection on people, profiling, Privacy by design, etc

SPECIAL ISSUE: THE USE OF THE INTERNET AND THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC CHANGES IN THE GLOCALIZED SOCIETY:THE PERSON, THE FINANCE AND THE MARKET IN CYBERSPACE.
If the global connection potentially opens up the universe of the market and finance to the whole world, at the same time the territorial location of the place of exchange or production loses its importance, instead the latter is acquired by the relevant legal order. Local production, taking advantage of a global market, can take full advantage of the territory's skills and exclusivity. A similar argument can apply to the direction of financial intermediation, which traditionally starts from a disadvantaged territory and heads towards a few territories considered favorable for investment. The global connection, expanding the market, allows an opposite direction, which brings funds and investments locally, to disadvantaged territories. Even more so where the dematerialization of work and business allows a territorial location of the workers themselves, think of teleworking, for example. Equally, in the online financial market, the new bargaining possibilities allow for glocalized finance. Glocal Exchanges and online stock markets, currency and glocal electronic coins, are already technically possible and economically advantageous. The centralization, required by law in Italy, of the financial market now appears to be a penalizing burden of the past. Instead, the choice of legal rules that make this field fully competitive and open becomes strategic, so as to be able to take full advantage of the potential of glocalized finance.
cyber-warfare, e-democracy, e-commerce, smart cities, social network and law, gaming on-line, data analytics for political aims, remote control of the workers, right to be disconnected, digital single market, digital and electronic coins and currencies, remote working, on-line finance, on-line exchange, digital financial tools
