RR 2007
The First International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems
7-8 June 2007, Innsbruck (Austria)
NEW DEADLINE for paper submission: 6 Feb 2007

Web site: http://www.wrrs.info


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.
RR 2007 brings together three previously separate events:
the International Workshop on Principles and Practice of Semantic Web 
Reasoning (PPSWR), the International Conference on Rules and Rule Markup 
Languages for the Semantic Web (RuleML), and the International Workshop 
on Reasoning on the Web (RoW).

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 submissions 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.

The conference is supported by REWERSE and RuleML, and conveniently 
co-located with ESWC.


RR 2007 welcomes original research and application papers dealing with
web reasoning and rule systems, with particular attention to the topics
listed below.
Submissions are expected by 6 Feb 2007
and should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer LNCS format (see 
The proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series, and 
revised versions of the best papers will be submitted for publication in 
the prestigious International Journal Knowledge and Information Systems 

Papers may be accepted as:
full papers (15 pages in the proceedings)
short papers (8 pages in the proceedings)
selected posters (1 page in the proceedings)
