RR 2014 is associated with the following interesting event:

- 10th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2014)
    Athens, Greece, September 8-13, 2014
    http://reasoningweb.org/2014/

The Reasoning Web Summer School (RW) is a great opportunity

Topics of particular interest are:

- Semantic Web, rule and ontology languages, and related logics
- Reasoning, querying, searching and optimization
- Incompleteness, inconsistency, and uncertainty
- Non-monotonic, commonsense, and closed-world reasoning for the Web
- Dynamic information, stream reasoning and complex event processing
- Decision making, planning, and intelligent agents
- Machine learning, knowledge extraction, and information retrieval
- Data management, data integration, and reasoning on the Web of data
- Ontology-based data access

== INVITED SPEAKERS ==

Frank van Harmelen (VU University Amsterdam, Netherlands)
Markus Krötzsch (Technical University of Dresden, Germany)

== DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM ==

Following the success the RR DC in 2012 and 2013, RR 2014 will
also host a doctoral consortium, which will provide doctoral
students in Web Reasoning and related areas with a unique opportunity
to present and discuss their research directions, be involved into
state-of-the-art research discussion and supported in establishing
fruitful collaborations with prominent researchers and pioneers in
the field of Web Reasoning and Rules and related areas. The RR-DC will
also provide a forum where PhD students can share ideas, and receive
constructive feedback on ongoing work from peer students.

More details about the DC, student application procedure, and student
grants can be found at http://rr2014.di.uoa.gr/?q=node/24

Further details will also be communicated by means of a separate Call
for Papers.

== PUBLICATION & JOURNAL ==

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS).

After the conference, authors of accepted papers will be invited to
submit extended versions of their papers to the Journal on Data Semantics.

== SUBMISSIONS ==

Submissions must be prepared in Springer's LaTeX style llncs
(http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html).

There are two submission formats:

- Full papers (up to 15 pages)
- Technical Communications (up to 6 pages)

Submitted full papers should present original and significant research
results. They must not substantially overlap with papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference/workshop with formal proceedings. Double submission to a
workshop with informal proceedings is allowed, like for instance the
DL 2014 workshop.

Technical communications are intended for promising but possibly
preliminary work, position papers, system descriptions, and
applications descriptions (which may be accompanied by a demo).

Submissions will be made via EasyChair:

        https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rr2014

== BEST PAPER AND BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARDS ==

Awards for Best Paper and Best Student Paper will be presented to the
corresponding author(s) at the conference. The best student paper
will be selected among the ones written mainly by students (i.e.,
persons not holding a PhD as of March 30, 2014), and the Best Student
Paper award will be assigned only in case a student is not one of the
main authors of the paper winning the Best Paper award. To qualify
for the Best Student Paper award, the authors must indicate their
eligibility upon submission at easychair.
