CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: The 11th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2015)

May 6, 2015 at 5:07 PM
This year the theme of the school is: "Web Logic Rules" As in the previous years, lectures in the summer school will be given by a distinguished group of expert lecturers. Apart from their lectures, most lecturers will also be present for the duration of the school to interact and establish contacts with the students.

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. It 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.

The summer school is co-located with RR2015, RuleML 2015 and CADE-25, hence, there will be a great opportunity for students to also attend a major event in the area after the school. In addition, RR and RuleML will also include a Doctoral Consortium and students of RW are particularly encouraged to also apply to the Doctoral consortium of RR and RuleML - joint applications are explicitly encouraged.

A selection of students attending RW will have the possibility to also attend the RR and RuleML Doctoral Consortium with the opportunity to present their poster in a regular session of RR 2015 and RuleML 2015. Students interested to be considered in this selection process should indicate it in their application.

Students applying to RW are encouraged to submit also to the RR Doctoral Consortium, which will have proceedings and a mentoring lunch. Applications must be submitted in PDF format not exceeding 2 pages (min. font size 11pt) and contain the following information:

The fee for attending the school is 450 Euros (for registered RR 2015 or RuleML 2015 participants, it is 350 Euros).


The course material used during the summer school will be published with Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. A copy of the proceedings will be included in the registration fees.


There will be a limited number of student grants available for the summer school and for the co-located RR2015 conference.
