RR 2016 Final call for papers - abstract submission: 23 May



10th International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems

Aberdeen, Scotland, UK, September 9-11, 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


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)


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).


Title and Abstract submission: May 23, 2016 (extended)
Full papers submission: May 27, 2016 (extended)
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.


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.


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 can be found on the conference website. 


Continuing its successful tradition, RR 2016 will host a Doctoral Consortium (DC).
The RR 2016 DC will provide doctoral students in Web Reasoning and related areas with a unique opportunity to present and discuss their research directions, be involved into state-of-the-art research discussion, and supported in establishing fruitful research collaborations.
The DC is composed by two main events:
- a mentoring lunch, where students will have the opportunity to get in touch with prominent researchers and pioneers in the field of Web Reasoning and Rules, and of related areas; and
- a poster session where students will have the possibility to present their work, share their ideas, and receive constructive feedback on their research activity.
Please see the website for detailed information on how to participate in the DC. 


The Reasoning Web (RW) summer school  series (RW2016) series focuses on the advanced capabilities required by Semantic Web and Linked Data application scenarios calling for Reasoning. This perspective, centered on the reasoning techniques complementing other research efforts in these areas, will give insight into the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Ontologies, Rules, and Logic.
The 12th edition of the School will take be colocated with RR 2016, 5-11 September 2016.
