The 13th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2017)
London, U.K., July 7-11, 2017

co-located with:

- RuleML+RR: International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning
  London, U.K., July 12-15, 2017
- RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium
- DecisionCAMP 2017
  London, U.K., July 13-14, 2017
- 11th International Rule Challenge
  London, U.K., July 12-15, 2017

The purpose of the Reasoning Web Summer School is to disseminate
recent advances on reasoning techniques which are of particular
interest to Semantic Web and Linked Data applications. The school
is primarily intended for postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students,
postdocs, young researchers, and senior researchers wishing to
learn about Reasoning on the Semantic Web and related issues. In
2017, the theme of the school is:

        "Semantic Interoperability on the Web"

As in the previous years, lectures in the summer school will be
given by a distinguished group of expert lecturers. Most lecturers
will also be present for the duration of the school to interact and
establish contacts with the students.

The summer school is co-located with RuleML+RR, a conference that
joins the well-known RuleML and RR event series, DecisionCAMP 2017,
and the 11th International Rule Challenge, hence, there will be a
great opportunity for students to also attend some major events in
the area. In addition, RuleML+RR will also include a Doctoral
Consortium and students of RW are particularly encouraged to also
apply to the Doctoral consortium of RuleML+RR.

Participants to the school will be delivered on request a certificate
of attendance indicating the number of hours of lectures. With this
certificate, some institutions may assign official credits for the
PhD program.
