TeReCom Workshop celebrated in Groningen

The 2nd Workshop on Technologies for Regulatory Compliance was celebrated in Groningen, the Netherlands, within the 31st International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems.

The workshop took place on the 12th of December, while the conference was held during the two following days. Works presented both at the workshop and main track were of much interest for Lynx, and since several partners of Lynx consortium were attending, it was a perfect chance to discuss the applicability of such new insights and further steps on the project.
