CALL FOR PAPERS: "Web Reasoning and Rule Systems", 29-30 Aug 2011, Ireland

http://www.rr-conference.org/RR2011/

RR 2011: The Fifth International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems, Galway, Ireland

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 http://www.rr-conference.org), 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. http://reasoningweb.org/2011/ 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.

    * Acquisition of rules and ontologies by knowledge extraction
    * Combining open and closed-world reasoning
    * Combining rules and ontologies
    * Design and analysis of reasoning languages
    * Efficiency and benchmarking
    * Implemented tools and systems
    * Foundations and applications related to relevant standardization bodies
    * Ontology usability
    * Ontology languages and their relationships
    * Querying and optimization
    * Rules and ontology management (such as inconsistency handling and evolution)
    * Reasoning with uncertainty and under inconsistency
    * Reasoning with constraints
    * Rule languages and systems
    * Rule interchange formats and Rule markup languages
    * Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the Web
    * Approximate reasoning techniques for the Web
    * Integration of statistical methods and symbolic reasoning
    * Stream reasoning
    * Semantic Web Services modeling and applications
    * Web and Semantic Web applications and experience papers

==Publication==

The conference proceedings will be published within Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. After the conference, selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the (IOS Press) journal "Semantic Web - Interoperability, Usability, Applicability".

==Submission of Papers==

Submissions must be typeset using the Springer LaTeX2e style llncs for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (see http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html), and must be in PDF format. Submission is via EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rr2011). The length should not exceed 15 pages for full papers. We also solicit poster papers (accompanying a poster to be presented at the conference's poster session) as well as system descriptions (for proposed system demos at the conference), both with an upper limit of 6 pages. The stated lengths include title, abstract, and references. Poster papers and system descriptions should be clearly marked as such in the title and in the easychair submission system. Submissions that deviate substantially from these guidelines may be rejected without review. Original research and application papers are welcome; submissions will especially be judged for originality and scientific quality. All accepted papers, posters, and system descriptions will be included in the proceedings.

==Important Dates==

Abstract submission:    April 20, 2011 
Full paper submission:  April 27, 2011 
Notification of acceptance: June 3, 2011
