PPSWR is an annual workshop, already in its 4th edition, organised by 
the Network of Excellence REWERSE. It serves as a forum for discussing 
various forms of reasoning that are or can be used on the Semantic Web. 
Moreover, it addresses both reasoning methods for the Semantic Web and 
Semantic Web applications relying upon various forms of reasoning.
