The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR)
aims to be the major forum for discussion and dissemination of new
results concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. RR 2008 builds on
the success of The First International Conference on Web Reasoning and
Rule Systems RR 2007, which received enthusiastic support from the Web
Rules community. In 2008, RR will continue the excellence of the new
series and aim to attract the best Web Reasoning and Rules researchers
from all over the world.

The reasoning landscape features theoretical areas such as knowledge
representation (KR) and algorithms; design aspects of rule markup;
design of ontology languages; engineering of engines, translators, and
other tools; efficiency considerations and benchmarking;
standardization efforts, such as the Rules Interchange Format activity
at W3C; and applications. Of particular interest is also the use of
rules to facilitate ontology modeling, and the relationships and
possible interactions between rules and ontology languages like RDF
and OWL, as well as ontology reasoning related to RDF and OWL, or
querying with SPARQL.

Suggested topics include the following, which is not to be considered
as an exhaustive list:

* Acquisition of rules and ontologies by knowledge extraction
* Combining open and closed-world reasoning
* Combining rules and ontologies
* Design and analysis of reasoning languages
* Efficiency and benchmarking
* Implemented tools and systems
* Standardization
* Ontology usability
* Ontology languages and their relationships
* Querying and optimization
* Rules and ontology management
       (such as inconsistency handling and evolution)
* Reasoning with uncertainty and under inconsistency
* Reasoning with constraints
* Rule languages and systems
* Rule interchange formats and Rule markup languages
* Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the web
* Semantic Web Services modeling and applications
* Web and Semantic Web applications
