Call for Applications: The 13th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2017)

June 26, 2017 9:53 AM
The summer school takes place in London, U.K., July 7-11, 2017 and it is co-located with, DecisionCamp 2017, 11th International Rule Challenge

The purpose of the Reasoning Web Summer School is to disseminate recent advances on reasoning techniques which are of particular interest to Semantic Web and Linked Data applications. The school is primarily intended for postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students, postdocs, young researchers, and senior researchers wishing to learn about Reasoning on the Semantic Web and related issues. In 2017, the theme of the school is:

"Semantic Interoperability on the Web"

As in the previous years, lectures in the summer school will be given by a distinguished group of expert lecturers. Most lecturers will also be present for the duration of the school to interact and establish contacts with the students.

The summer school is co-located with RuleML+RR, a conference that joins the well-known RuleML and RR event series, DecisionCAMP 2017, and the 11th International Rule Challenge, hence, there will be a great opportunity for students to also attend some major events in the area. In addition, RuleML+RR will also include a Doctoral Consortium and students of RW are particularly encouraged to also apply to the Doctoral consortium of RuleML+RR.

Participants to the school will be delivered on request a certificate of attendance indicating the number of hours of lectures. With this certificate, some institutions may assign official credits for the PhD program.
