** CALL FOR PAPERS: RR2007 **

RR 2007 The First International Conference on Web Reasoning and
Rule Systems 7-8 June 2007, Innsbruck (Austria)
* NEW DEADLINE for paper submission: 6 Feb 2007 *

Web site: http://www.wrrs.info

** INTRODUCTION **

The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems
(RR) aims to be the major forum for discussion and dissemination
of new results on all topics concerning Web Reasoning and Rule
Systems. RR 2007 brings together three previously separate events:
the International Workshop on Principles and Practice of Semantic
Web Reasoning (PPSWR), the International Conference on Rules and
Rule Markup Languages for the Semantic Web (RuleML), and the
International Workshop on Reasoning on the Web (RoW).

This joint conference is devoted to all aspects of Semantic Web
Reasoning, with an emphasis on rule-based approaches and
languages. It welcomes both theoretical and practical submissions
on this wide subject.

The reasoning landscape features theoretical areas such as
knowledge representation (KR) and algorithms; design aspects of
rule markup; design of ontology languages; engineering of engines,
translators, and other tools; standardization efforts, such as the
Rules Interchange Format activity at W3C; and applications. Of
particular interest is also the use of rules to facilitate
ontology modelling, and the relationships and possible
interactions between rules and ontology languages like RDF and
OWL, as well as ontology reasoning related to RDF and OWL.

The conference is supported by REWERSE and RuleML, and
conveniently co-located with ESWC.

** SUBMISSIONS **

RR 2007 welcomes original research and application papers dealing
with web reasoning and rule systems, with particular attention to
the topics listed below. Submissions are expected by 6 Feb 2007
and should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer LNCS format
(see http://www.wrrs.info). The proceedings will be published by
Springer in the LNCS series, and revised versions of the best
papers will be submitted for publication in the prestigious
International Journal Knowledge and Information Systems (KAIS).

Papers may be accepted as: full papers (15 pages in the
proceedings) short papers (8 pages in the proceedings) selected
posters (1 page in the proceedings)

** IMPORTANT DATES **

Paper Submission: 6 February 2007 Notification: 9 March, 2007
Camera-Ready Papers due: 19 March, 2007 Conference: 7-8 June, 2007

** CONFERENCE TOPICS **

Submissions on all topics related to web reasoning and rules
systems are welcomed, including (but not limited to) the
following:

Acquisition of rules and ontologies by knowledge extraction
Combining open and closed-world reasoning Combining rules and
ontologies Design and analysis of reasoning languages Implemented
tools and systems Standardization efforts Ontology and rules
usability Ontology and rule languages and their relationships
Rules and ontology management (such as inconsistency handling and
evolution) Reasoning with uncertainty and under inconsistency
Reasoning with constraints Rule languages and systems Rule
interchange formats and Rule markup languages Scalability vs.
expressivity of reasoning on the web Modularization of rules and
ontologies Semantic Web Services modeling and applications Web and
Semantic Web applications
