>The Semantic Web is a major endeavor aiming at enriching the existing
>with meta-data and processing methods so as to provide web-based
>with advanced (so-called intelligent) capabilities, in particular with 
>context-awareness and decision support.
>The advanced capabilities striven for in most Semantic Web application 
>scenarii primarily call for reasoning. Reasoning capabilities are
>by Semantic Web languages currently developped such as BPEL4WS, BPML, 
>ConsVISor, DAML-S,  JTP, Triple, and others. These languages, however,
>developed mostly from functionality centered (e.g. ontology reasoning
>access validation) or application centered (e.g. Web service retrieval
>composition) perspectives. A perspective centered on the reasoning 
>techniques (e.g. forward or backward chaining, tableau-like methods, 
>constraint reasoning, etc.) complementing the above-mentioned
>appears desirable for Semantic Web systems and applications. The
>is devoted to such a perspective.
>Like the current Web is inherently heterogeneous in data formats and
>semantics, the Semantic Web will be inherently heterogeneous in its 
>reasoning forms. Indeed, any single form of reasoning turns out 
>irrealistic in the Semantic Web. E.g. ontology reasoning in general
>on monotonic negation (for the meta-data often can be fully specified),

>while databases, Web databases, and Web-based information systems call
>non-monotonic reasoning (for one would not specify in a railways
>non-existing trains); constraint reasoning is needed in dealing with
>(for time intervals are to be dealt with), while (forward and/or
>chaining is the reasoning of choice in coping with database-like views 
>(for views i.e. virtual data can be derived from actual data by
>such as join and projections).
>The workshop on "Principle and Practice of Semantic Web Reasoning''
>be a forum for discussing various forms of reasoning that are or can be

>used on the Semantic Web. The workshop will address both, reasoning 
>methods for the Semantic Web and Semantic Web applications relying upon

>various forms of reasoning.
>The <http://www.kbs.uni-hannover.de/~henze/ppswr03>first workshop in

>    * Rule markup languages

>    * Inconsistency-tolerant reasoning on the Semantic Web
>    * Reasoning and querying on the Web
>    * Reasoning methods for Adaptive Web systems and applications
>    * Reasoning methods for Web-based decision support
>    * Reasoning methods for policy specification and conformance
