372c The 7th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2008) | Web Reasoning and Rule Systems

ISWC 2008

2nd International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems

31 October - 1 November 2008, Karlsruhe

The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR) aims to be the major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. RR 2008 builds on the success of The First International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems RR 2007, which received enthusiastic support from the Web Rules community. In 2008, RR will continue the excellence of the new series and aim to attract the best Web Reasoning and Rules researchers from all over the world.

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; efficiency considerations and benchmarking; 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, or querying with SPARQL.

The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer in their LNCS series and also available online on SpringerLink. There will be a Joint Keynote between RR2008 and RuleML-2008, which will be broadcast from RR2008 to RuleML-2008. The conference is conveniently co-located with ISWC 2008 (The International Semantic Web Conference)
