The 12th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2016)
Aberdeen, UK, September 5-9, 2016

co-located with:

- 10th International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR 2016),
  Aberdeen, UK, September 9-11, 2016

The purpose of the Reasoning Web Summer School is to disseminate recent advances on reasoning techniques which are of particular interest to Semantic Web, Linked Data and Knowledge Graph applications. It 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 2016, the theme of the school is:

        "Query Rules"

As in the previous years, lectures in the summer school will be given by a distinguished group of expert lecturers. Apart from their lectures, 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 RR2016, hence, there will be a great opportunity for students to also attend a major event in the area after the school. In addition, RR will also include a Doctoral Consortium and students of RW are particularly encouraged to also apply to the Doctoral consortium of RR - joint applications are explicitly encouraged.
