Reasoning Web Summer School (RW) 2021

(Part of Declarative AI 2021)

Venue: ONLINE event (with FREE registration)
Dates: 8-10 September 2021

The purpose of the Reasoning Web Summer School is to disseminate recent advances on reasoning techniques and related issues that 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 deepen their knowledge.

As in the previous years, lectures in the summer school will be given by a distinguished group of expert lecturers carefully selected to cover a wide range of topics relevant to the school (see below).

The summer school is part of Declarative AI 2021 and is co-located with RuleML+RR 2021 and DecisionCAMP 2021. The students attending the RW school are particularly encouraged to also apply to the Doctoral Consortium of RuleML+RR.
