PPSWR is an annual workshop, already in its
4th edition, organised by the Network of Excellence REWERSE. It
serves as a forum for discussing various forms of reasoning that
are or can be used on the Semantic Web. Moreover, it addresses
both reasoning methods for the Semantic Web and Semantic Web
applications relying upon various forms of reasoning.

Abstract Submission deadline:  March 22, 2006

- Rule interchange formats and Rule markup languages
- Reasoning paradigms for Web query languages
- Query languages for ontology languages
- Constraint reasoning on the Semantic Web
- Default reasoning on the Semantic Web
- Fuzzy reasoning on the Semantic Web
- Inconsistency-tolerant reasoning on the Semantic Web
- Formal methods in the Semantic Web
- Applications of reasoning methods, e.g.
        Adaptive Web systems and applications
        Web-based decision support
        Policy specification and conformance
        Semantic Web Services
        Temporal and spatial reasoning;
- User-friendly interfaces to rules and reasoning on the Web
    (e.g. natural language, visualisation, etc.)
