                           RR 2011
The Fifth International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems
           Galway, Ireland, 29-30 August 2011

The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR)
is a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results
concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. RR 2011 builds on the
success of the four previous International Conferences on Web
Reasoning and Rule Systems (see, held
in Innsbruck, Austria (2007), Karlsruhe, Germany (2008), and
Chantilly, Virginia, USA(2009), Bressanone/ Brixen, Italy (2010),
and which received enthusiastic support from the Web Reasoning
community. In 2011, RR will continue the excellence of the new
series and aim to attract the best WebReasoning and Rules
researchers from all over the world. Moreover, this year's
conference will be co-located with the 7th Reasoning Web Summer
School (23-27 Aug, cf. for details)
which is a great opportunity particularly for young researchers to
combine with attendance of the conference. Poster submissions by
summer school participants are particularly encouraged.

RR2011 late/onsite registration (after July 10):
