	RuleML+RR 2022
19 - 21 September in Berlin, Germany
(part of DeclarativeAI and co-located with DecisionCAMP and the 18th 
Reasoning Web Summer School)

The RuleML+RR 2022 conference is part of the event “Declarative AI: 
Rules, Reasoning, Decisions, and Explanations” and is co-located with 
DecisionCAMP 2022 and the Reasoning Web Summer
The 6th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning (RuleML+RR 
2022) is the leading international joint conference in the field of 
rule-based reasoning. One of the main goals of RuleML+RR is to build 
bridges between academia and industry in the area of School. See 
https://2022.declarativeai.net/ .

RuleML+RR 2022 aims to bring together rigorous researchers and inventive 
practitioners, interested in the foundations and applications of rules 
and reasoning.  It provides a forum for stimulating cooperation and 
cross-fertilization between different communities focused on the 
research, development, and applications of rule-based systems. We are 
looking for high-quality papers related to theoretical advances, novel 
technologies, and artificial intelligence applications that involve 
rule-based representation and reasoning.

RuleML+RR 2022 Programm Chairs

### Rules for AI and AI for Rules
* Rule-based approaches to natural language processing
* Applications of rule technologies with explainable AI (xAI) elements
* Machine learning approaches involving rules
* Explainable AI approaches based on rules,
* Rule-based approaches for intelligent systems and intelligent 
information access

### Rules and Reasoning / Logics
* Non-classical logics and the web
* Description Logics, existential rules
* Higher-order and modal rules
* Constraint programming
* Logic programming, ASP and datalog
* Rule based argumentation
* Rule-based approaches to agents and multi-agent systems
* Reasoning with incomplete, inconsistent and uncertain data
* Non-monotonic, common-sense, and closed-world reasoning
* Inconsistency-tolerant rule reasoning

### Technical Aspects of Rule Systems / Rule Technology
* Streaming data and complex event processing
* Web reasoning and distributed rule inference and execution
* Scalability and expressive power of logics for the Semantic Web
* Scalability and expressive power of logics for rules

### Rules and Interoperability
* Rule markup languages, rule interchange formats, and rule standards
* Rule-based policies, reputation, and trust
* Rules and human language technology

### System descriptions, applications and experiences of ontologies and 
rules in:
* climate change monitoring, mitigation & adaptation
* environmental protection
* healthcare and life sciences
* equity and social welfare
* law, regulation, and finance
* Digital Twins
* Industrial contexts
* Production & business rule systems

Main conference track
High-quality papers related to theoretical advances, novel technologies, 
and artificial intelligence applications concerning explainable 
algorithmic decision-making that involve rule-based representation and 
reasoning are solicited.
We accept the following submission formats for papers:
* Long papers (up to 15 pages in LNCS style)
* Short papers (up to 8 pages in LNCS style)
Long papers should present original and significant research and/or 
development results. Short papers should concisely describe general 
results or specific applications, systems, or position statements.

Submissions to RuleML+RR
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have 
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a 
conference/workshop with formal proceedings. Double submission to a 
workshop with informal proceedings is allowed. Papers put on arXiv are 
also allowed as long as they are not refereed (i.e., formally reviewed 
by peers). All submissions must be prepared in Springer's LNCS style 

In addition to regular submissions, RuleML+RR 2022 will include the
- 16th International Rule Challenge,
- Industry track,  and
- Doctoral Consortium
which will have their own proceedings published in CEUR. RuleML+RR 2022 
is co-located with DecisionCAMP 2022 and the 18th Reasoning Web Summer 
School (RW 2022).

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS) after the conference. A 
selection of the accepted papers of RuleML+RR 2021 will be invited for 
submission to the Journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming 
(TPLP) published by Cambridge University Press.

Important dates
* May 24th: Title and abstract submission
* June 2nd: Paper submission deadline
* August 1st: Notification of acceptance
* September 26th-28th: Conference

For each of these deadlines, a cut-off point of 23:59 AOE applies.
