The 14th Reasoning Web Summer School will take place in Luxembourg on 22-26 September 2018, Belval campus

 

The research areas of Semantic Web, Linked Data and Knowledge Graphs have received a lot of attention in academia and industry recently. Since its inception in 2001, the Semantic Web has aimed at enriching the existing Web with meta-data and processing methods, so as to provide Web-based systems with intelligent capabilities such as context-awareness and decision support. 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. Knowledge Graphs have been shown useful not only for Web search (as demonstrated by Google, Bing etc) but also in many application domains.

Chairs

  • Claudia d'Amato (University of Bari)
  • Martin Theobald (University of Luxembourg)

Call for Applications

We welcome applications from Master and PhD students as well postdoctoral researchers, young researchers, and senior researchers wishing to learn about the research areas of Semantic Web and related sub-areas such as Linked Data and Knowledge Graphs, Ontologies, Rules, and Logic. 

Participants to the summer school will have the opportunity to attend lectures, to be involved in working groups concerning small case studies or research tasks to focus on and to be presented in a final plenary session, discuss ideas and closely interact with leading researchers in the Semantic Web community and beyond.

Registration

The registration fees for attending the RW Summer School will be 300 EUR (if your RW registration is bundled with the one for RuleML-RR) and 350 EUR (if you choose to only register for RW), respectively. This includes all lectures and teaching sessions, lunches, coffee breaks, school proceedings and a social event.

Student grants

A limited number of grants will be available for selected students who would otherwise not be able to attend the summer school. As such, please ask for financial support in your application (see below) only if this is the necessary condition for you to participate in the summer school.

Application

Students and researchers interested in participating at the school need to submit their application by June 30, 2018. The application should consist of a single pdf file including:

  • A single-page CV.
  • A short motivation letter of up to 300 words stating research interests and reasons for the willingness to attend the summer school.
  • Necessity for a visa to enter Luxembourg (Yes or No). If required, invitation letters will be set up.
  • Necessity for financial support. A limited number of travel grants will be provided, please thus ask for financial support only if this is a necessary condition for you to join the school. Please add a rough quote for your estimated expenses (travel + hotel costs) to your application in this case.

Notifications about the selection results will be sent by July 15, 2018.
