RR 2016 FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

10th International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems

Aberdeen, Scotland, UK, September 9-11, 2016

http://www.abdn.ac.uk/events/rr-2016/

==================================================================

The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR) is a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results concerning rule-based systems, and their applications in reasoning about web data.  

The 10th edition, RR 2016, will take place in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK, on September 9th-11th 2016, and will be co-located with the 12th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW2016).  Please see http://www.abdn.ac.uk/events/rr-2016/ for more information. 

== TOPICS == 

RR welcomes original research from all areas of Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. 

Topics of particular interest include:

* Rule-based languages for intelligent information access and for the semantic web
* Ontology-based data access
* Data management, and data interoperability for web data
* Distributed agent-based systems for the web
* Scalability and expressive power of logics for the semantic web
* Reasoning with incomplete, inconsistent and uncertain data
* Non-monotonic, common-sense, and closed-world reasoning for web data
* Constraint programming, inductive logic programming for web data
* Streaming data and complex event processing
* Rule-based approaches to machine learning, knowledge extraction and information retrieval
* Rule-based approaches to natural language processing
* System descriptions, applications and experiences


== SUMBISSIONS == 

We accept the following submission formats for papers:

* Full papers (up to 15 pages in LNCS style)
* Technical Communications (up to 6 pages in LNCS style) 

Submitted full papers should present original and significant research results. They must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with formal proceedings. Double submission to a workshop with informal proceedings is allowed.

Technical communications are intended for promising but possibly preliminary work, position papers, system descriptions, and applications descriptions (which may be accompanied by a demo).

Submissions: via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rr2016)


== PUBLICATION == 

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). All submissions must be prepared in Springer's LaTeX style llncs (http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html).

== IMPORTANT DATES == 

Title and Abstract submission: May 16, 2016 
Full papers submission: May 20, 2016
Notification of acceptance: June 22, 2016
Camera-ready submission: July 3, 2016
Conference: September 9-11, 2016

For each of these deadlines, a cut-off point of 23:59 AOE (anywhere on earth) applies.


== BEST PAPER AND STUDENT PAPER AWARDS == 

Awards for Best Paper and Best Student Paper will be presented to the corresponding author(s) at the conference. To qualify for the Best Student Paper award, the main authors must not hold a PhD at the paper submission deadline, and indicate their eligibility upon submission. The program committee reserves the right to not give out the awards, or to split the awards among multiple submissions.

== GRANTS FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING RR/RW 2016==

RR will be offering scholarships to participants to partially cover registration and/or accommodation fees. An additional number of grants is reserved to US Students to attend RR2016 and the co-located RW2016 summer school.  Details will be announced soon.
