International Workshop on Advancing Reasoning on the Web: Scalability
and Commonsense(ARea 2008)
Hosted by the 5th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC-08)
June 1, 2008, Tenerife, Spain
Submission Deadline for full paper: 7th of March, 2008 (12.00 AM, GMT)

Workshop Description
Semantic Web Technologies provide concepts, architectures, and tools
for interconnected vocabularies and applications. One of the declared
goals of Semantic Web research is to enable intelligent software agents
to reason about information and knowledge which is pervaded on the Web.
To realize this, Semantic Web reasoning research has to face two
apparently contradictory challenges: On the one hand, scalability to
web size is crucial. On the other hand, expressive knowledge
representation capabilities are needed, as traditionally studied in the
area of commonsense reasoning.

Workshop Objectives and Topics of Interest
We therefore seek to bring together researchers interested in scalable
reasoning solutions for the Semantic Web as well as researchers in
commonsense reasoning.

We invite technical contributions and short statements of interest
concerning all aspects of scalable reasoning and commonsense reasoning
on and for the semantic web.

These include:

  * new forms of reasoning
  * heuristic and approximate reasoning
  * querying and searching
  * scalability of reasoning to web level
  * nonmonotonicity for ontology languages
  * computational models of argumentation
  * dynamics of ontologies
  * contextualisation
  * temporal and spatial reasoning
  * inconsistency handling
  * rules and ontologies
  * uncertainty handling
  * planning and reasoning about action and change on the semantic web

Important Dates
Submission Deadline: 7th of March 2008
Notification: 4th of April, 2008
Camera-ready version: 18th of April, 2008
Workshop day: to be decided (between 1st and 5th of June, 2008)

We will accept full papers (up to 15 pages) as well as short statements
of interest (2 pages) in LNCS format. Both of these will be reviewed by
members of the programme committee.

Proceedings will be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings (bearing an
ISSN number).

Submissions should be sent to Guilin Qi, gqi@aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de 
<mailto:gqi@aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de>, no
later than 7th of March 2008.
