co-located with:

- 9th International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR 2015),
  Berlin, Germany, August 4-6, 2015
  http://www.rr-conference.org/RR2015
- 9th International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML 2015),

The purpose of the Reasoning Web Summer School is to disseminate recent
advances on reasoning techniques which are of particular interest to
Semantic Web and Linked Data applications. It is primarily intended for
postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students, postdocs, young researchers, and senior
researchers wishing to learn about Reasoning on the Semantic Web and related
issues. In 2015, the theme of the school is:

        "Web Logic Rules"

As in the previous years, lectures in the summer school will be
given by a distinguished group of expert lecturers. Apart from
their lectures, most lecturers will also be present for the duration
of the school to interact and establish contacts with the students.

The summer school is co-located with RR2015, RuleML 2015 and CADE-25,
hence, there will be a great opportunity for students to also attend
a major event in the area after the school. In addition, RR and RuleML
will also include a Doctoral Consortium and students of RW are
particularly encouraged to also apply to the Doctoral consortium of RR
and RuleML - joint applications are explicitly encouraged.
