                           REASONING WEB 2012
             The 8th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2012)
                 Vienna, Austria, September 03-08, 2012

co-located with the

- 6th Int'l Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR 2012),
  September 10-12, 2012

- 4th Int'l Conference on Computational Models of Argument (COMMA 2012),
  September 10-12, 2012

- 2nd Datalog 2.0 Workshop, September 11-13, 2012

- 23rd Int'l Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications
  (DEXA 2012), September 03-07, 2012

The Reasoning Web Summer School 2012 is primarily intended for
postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students, postdocs, and other young
researchers investigating aspects related to Reasoning on the Semantic
Web and related issues.  The Summer School will also be open to senior
researchers wishing to learn about Semantic Web issues related to their
own fields of research.

For further details please visit http://www.reasoningweb.org/2012/

As in the previous years, we managed again to attract a distinguished
group of expert lecturers, the majority of which will - apart from their
lectures - also be present for the duration of the school to interact
with students.

Interaction with senior researchers and establishing contacts within
young researchers is a main focus of the school, which will be supported
through social activities and an interactive, amicable atmosphere.

This year's summer school will be co-located with a number of related
conferences and workshop, viz. Int'l Conference on Web Reasoning and
Rule Systems 2012, the Int'l Conference on Computational Models of
Argument 2012, the Int'l Conference on Database and Expert Systems
Applications 2012, and the 2nd Datalog 2.0 Workshop 2012 (dates and
links are given above).  This will be a great opportunity to attend
major conferences and workshops in the area directly subsequent to the
school.  Reasoning Web 2012 is part of the Vienna Logic Weeks 2012:

As a further highlight, we want to point out the opportunity of PhD
students to present their research at the RR 2012 Doctoral Consortium.
Joint applications for the Reasoning Web Summer School 2012 and the RR
2012 Doctoral Consortium are explicitly encouraged.  More details are
given on the RR-DC 2012 website:
