Web Reasoning and Rule Systems

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. 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 works on this wide subject.

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.
