5-9 September 2016, 12th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2016), Aberdeen, Scotland, UK

Date: 5-9 September 2016
Location: Aberdeen, Scotland, UK

Over the years, the Semantic Web vision has been driving many community efforts which have invested a lot of resources in developing vocabularies and ontologies for annotating their resources semantically. Besides ontologies, rules have long been a central part of the Semantic Web framework and are available as one of its fundamental representation tools, with logic serving as a unifying foundation. Linked data is a related research area which studies how one can make RDF data available on the Web, and interconnect it with other data with the aim of increasing its value for everybody.

Many advanced capabilities required by Semantic Web and Linked Data application scenarios call for Reasoning. Thus, a perspective centered on the reasoning techniques complementing other research efforts in this area is desirable. This Summer School series is devoted to this perspective, and will give insight into the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Ontologies, Rules, and Logic.

The Reasoning Web Summer School 2016 is primarily intended for advanced undergraduate students, M.Sc. and Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers, and young researchers from industry. The Summer School will also be open to a limited number of senior researchers from other areas wishing to learn about Semantic Web, Linked Data and related issues. The number of participants is limited. Application deadline: TBA.
