Please forward to interested parties.

                  3rd CALL FOR PAPERS

                            RR 2011
The Fifth International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems
            Galway, Ireland, 29-30 August 2011

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 2011 builds on the
success of the four previous International Conferences on Web
Reasoning and Rule Systems (see http://www.rr-conference.org), held
in Innsbruck, Austria (2007), Karlsruhe, Germany (2008), and
Chantilly, Virginia, USA(2009), Bressanone/ Brixen, Italy (2010),
and which received enthusiastic support from the Web Reasoning
community. In 2011, RR will continue the excellence of the new
series and aim to attract the best WebReasoning and Rules
researchers from all over the world. Moreover, this year's
conference will be co-located with the 7th Reasoning Web Summer
School (23-27 Aug, cf. http://reasoningweb.org/2011/ for details)
which is a great opportunity particularly for young researchers to
combine with attendance of the conference. Poster submissions by
summer school participants are particularly encouraged.

==Student Grants==

There will be a limited number of student grants available for students 
attending the co-located summer school and RR (preference will be given
to students that have an accepted poster or demo at the conference). For 
details on how to apply for student grants, please check: 



* 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
* Ontology usability
* Ontology languages and their relationships
* Querying and optimization
* 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
* Approximate reasoning techniques for the Web
* Integration of statistical methods and symbolic reasoning
* Stream reasoning
* Semantic Web Services modeling and applications
* Web and Semantic Web applications and experience papers


The conference proceedings will be published within Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. After the
conference, selected papers from the conference will be invited to
submit extended versions to a special issue of the (IOS Press)
journal "Semantic Web - Interoperability, Usability, Applicability".

==Submission of Papers==

Submissions must be typeset using the Springer LaTeX2e style llncs
for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (see
http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html), and must be in PDF
format. Submission is via EasyChair
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rr2011). The length
should not exceed 15 pages for full papers. We also solicit poster
papers (accompanying a poster to be presented at the conference's
poster session) as well as system descriptions (for proposed system
demos at the conference), both with an upper limit of 6 pages. The
stated lengths include title, abstract, and references. Poster
papers and system descriptions should be clearly marked as such in
the title and in the easychair submission system. Submissions that
deviate substantially from these guidelines may be rejected without
review. Original research and application papers are welcome;
submissions will especially be judged for originality and scientific
quality. All accepted papers, posters, and system descriptions will
be included in the proceedings.

==Important Dates==

Abstract submission (new!):      April 27, 2011 
Full paper submission (new!):  May 4, 2011 
Notification of acceptance: June 10, 2011
