3rd Call for Applications/Participation

The 7th REASONING WEB Summer School (RW 2011)

23 - 27 August 2011

co-located with the 
5th Int'l Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR2011)
Galway, Ireland

************* DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IN 10 DAYS !!!!! *************

The Reasoning Web Summer School 2011 is primarily intended for 
postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students, postdocs, and other young 
researchers investigating aspects related to Reasoning on the Semantic
Web and related issues. The Summer School will also be open to senior 
researchers wishing to learn about Semantic Web issues related to their
own fields of research. 

For further details please visit 


As in the previous years, we managed again to attract a distinguished
group of expert lecturers, the majority of which will - apart from
their lectures - also be  present for the duration of the school to
interact with students.

Interaction with senior researchers and establishing contacts within
young researchers is a main focus of the school, which will be
supported through social activities and an interactive, amicable 

This year's summer school will be co-located with the 5th
International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR2011),
29-30 Aug, cf. http://www.rr-conference.org/RR2011/) which is a great
opportunity to attend a major conference in the area directly
subsequent  to the school.
