Dear colleagues,
due to the many requests, we have decided to grant an extension to the
deadline of RR2007.

The new deadline is ** FEBRUARY 11 **.

Authors who already submitted are free to use the extra time to
further polish up
their paper and amend it via the resubmission system of easychair (so, don't
resubmit a new version, just modify your previous one).

Thanks and apologies for eventual multiple postings,


RR 2007
The First International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems
7-8 June 2007, Innsbruck (Austria)
* EXTENDED DEADLINE: 11 Feb 2007 *

Web site: http://www.wrrs.info


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:
the 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

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 supported by REWERSE and RuleML, and conveniently
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 ** 11 Feb 2007 ** and should not exceed fifteen (15)
pages in Springer LNCS format (see http://www.wrrs.info).
The proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series, and
revised versions of the best papers will be submitted for publication
in the prestigious International Journal Knowledge and Information
Systems (KAIS).

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