International Workshop on Advancing 
Reasoning on the Web: Scalability and Commonsense (ARea 2008)

Hosted by the 5th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC-08)
June 1, 2008, Tenerife, Spain

Submission Deadline for full paper: 7th of March, 2008 (12.00 AM, GMT)


Workshop Description


Semantic Web Technologies provide concepts, architectures, and tools 
for interconnected vocabularies and applications. One of the declared 
goals of Semantic Web research is to enable intelligent software agents 
to reason about information and knowledge which is pervaded on the Web. 
To realize this, Semantic Web reasoning research has to face two 
apparently contradictory challenges: On the one hand, scalability to 
web size is crucial. On the other hand, expressive knowledge 
representation capabilities are needed, as traditionally studied in the 
are of commonsense reasoning.

Workshop Objectives and Topics of Interest

We therefore seek to bring 
together researchers interested in scalable reasoning solutions for the 
Semantic Web as well as researchers in commonsense reasoning.

We invite technical contributions and short statements of interest 
concerning all aspects of scalable reasoning and commonsense reasoning 
on and for the semantic web.

These include:

   * new forms of reasoning

   * heuristic and approximate reasoning

   * querying and searching

   * scalability of reasoning to web level

   * nonmonotonicity for ontology languages

   * computational models of argumentation

   * dynamics of ontologies

   * contextualisation

   * temporal and spatial reasoning

   * inconsistency handling

   * rules and ontologies

   * uncertainty handling

   * planning and reasoning about action and change on the semantic web

Important Dates


Submission Deadline: 7th of March 2008

Notification: 4th of April, 2008

Camera-ready version: 18th of April, 2008

Workshop day: to be decided (between 1st and 5th of June, 2008)



We will accept full papers (up to 15 pages) as well as short statements 
of interest (2 pages) in LNCS format. Both of these will be reviewed by 
members of the programme committee.

Proceedings will be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings (bearing an 
ISSN number).

Submissions should be sent to Guilin Qi, gqi at aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de, no 
later than 7th of March 2008.
