      CALL FOR PAPERS

      RR 2011
      The Fifth International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems
      Galway, Ireland, 29-30 August 2011
      http://www.rr-conference.org/RR2011/


      The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR)
      is a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results
      concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. RR 2011 builds on the
      success of the four previous International Conferences on Web
      Reasoning and Rule Systems (see http://www.rr-conference.org), held
      in Innsbruck, Austria (2007), Karlsruhe, Germany (2008), and
      Chantilly, Virginia, USA(2009), Bressanone/ Brixen, Italy (2010),
      and which received enthusiastic support from the Web Reasoning
      community. In 2011, RR will continue the excellence of the new
      series and aim to attract the best WebReasoning and Rules
      researchers from all over the world. Moreover, this year's
      conference will be co-located with the 7th Reasoning Web Summer
      School (23-27 Aug, cf. http://reasoningweb.org/2011/ for details)
      which is a great opportunity particularly for young researchers to
      combine with attendance of the conference. Poster submissions by
      summer school participants are particularly encouraged.

      submit extended versions to a special issue of the (IOS Press)
      journal "Semantic Web - Interoperability, Usability, Applicability".

      ==Submission of Papers==

      Submissions must be typeset using the Springer LaTeX2e style llncs
      for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (see
      http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html), and must be in PDF
      format. Submission is via EasyChair
      (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rr2011). The length
      should not exceed 15 pages for full papers. We also solicit poster
      papers (accompanying a poster to be presented at the conference's
      poster session) as well as system descriptions (for proposed system
      demos at the conference), both with an upper limit of 6 pages. The
      stated lengths include title, abstract, and references. Poster
      papers and system descriptions should be clearly marked as such in
      the title and in the easychair submission system. Submissions that
      deviate substantially from these guidelines may be rejected without
      review. Original research and application papers are welcome;
      submissions will especially be judged for originality and scientific
      quality. All accepted papers, posters, and system descriptions will
      be included in the proceedings.

      ==Important Dates==

        CALL FOR PAPERS

        24th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2011)

        Barcelona, Spain, July 13th to July 16th, 2011

        http://dl.kr.org/dl2011/

        The DL workshop is the major annual event of the description logic
        research community. It is the forum at which those interested in
        description logics, both from academia and industry, meet to discuss
        ideas, share information and compare experiences.

        ==IMPORTANT DATES==

        Paper submission deadline: May 1, 2011
        Notification of acceptance: June 5, 2011
        Camera ready papers due: June 19, 2011
        Workshop: July 13-16, 2011

        ==WORKSHOP SCOPE==

        We invite contributions on all aspects of description logics,such
        as:
        * foundations of description logics, including expressive power,
        decidability and complexity of reasoning, novel inference problems,
        and reasoning techniques for solving these problems;
        * extensions of description logics, including, but not limited to,
        closed-world and nonmonotonic reasoning, defaults, epistemic
        reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge, and
        query languages;
        * integration of description logics with other formalisms, such as
        object-oriented representation languages, database query languages,
        constraint-based programming, logic programming, and rule-based
        systems;
        * use of description logics in applications or areas such as ontology
        engineering, ontology languages, databases, semi-structured data,
        document management, natural language, learning, planning, semantic
        web, and grid computing;
        * building systems based on description logics, with special emphasis
        on optimization and implementation techniques; and
        * tools that exploit description logic reasoning, such as ontology
        editors, database schema design, query optimization, and data
        integration tools.

        ==SUBMISSION DETAILS==

        We invite submissions of papers in Springer LNCS style, see
        http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html
        to arrive no later than May 1, 2011.

        The length of submissions is limited to 11 pages, including title
        and abstract (can be omitted if necessary), and list of references.
