Preliminary CFP: RR2007 - The First International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems


RR 2007
The First International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems

7-8 June 2007, Innsbruck (Austria)
Paper submission: by 29 Jan 2007


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:
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 modeling, 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 organized by REWERSE and RuleML, and co-located with ESWC.


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 15 Jan 2007
and should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer LNCS format.
Discussion is undergoing with Springer for publishing not only
the normal conference proceedings (in the LNCS series), but also a special
issue in a major international journal, containing revised versions of the
best papers from the conference.

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