		The Third International Conference on
	       Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR 2009)


		       Chantilly, Virginia, USA
			 October 25-26, 2009

     Co-located with the International Semantic Web Conference '09

The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR) is
a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results
concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. RR 2009 builds on the
success of the first two International Conferences on Web Reasoning
and Rule Systems, held in 2007 in Innsbruck and in and 2008 in
Karlsruhe, which received enthusiastic support from the Web Rules
community. In 2009, RR will continue the excellence of the new series
and aim to attract the best Web Reasoning and Rules researchers from
all over the world.

Suggested topics include the following, which is not to be considered
as an exhaustive list:

  *  Representation techniques for web-based knowledge
  *  Acquisition of rules and ontologies by knowledge extraction
  *  Combining open and closed-world reasoning
  *  Combining rules and ontologies
  *  Design and analysis of reasoning languages
  *  Efficiency and benchmarking
  *  Implemented tools and systems
  *  Foundations and applications related to relevant
         standardization bodies such as the W3C Rule
         Interchange Format (RIF), Web Ontology Language (OWL2) and
         SPARQL working groups, or the W3C Uncertainty Reasoning for the
         World Wide Web Incubator Group, etc.
  *  Ontology usability
  *  Ontology languages and their relationships
  *  Querying and optimization
  *  Rules and ontology management (such as inconsistency handling and
  *  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
  *  Approximate reasoning techniques for the Web
  *  Integration of statistical methods and symbolic reasoning
  *  Semantic Web Services modeling and applications
  *  Web and Semantic Web applications and experience papers
