== RR ==

The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR)
is a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results
concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems.

== Highlights in 2012 ==

In addition to regular papers, RR 2012 solicits the submission of
TECHNICAL COMMUNICATIONS (TCs) that report about some interesting
recent work, preliminary result, or inspiring viewpoint. Selected
TCs will be invited for a full presentation like regular papers.

RR 2012 is co-located with a number of interesting events:

- 8th Reasoning Web Summer School
    4-8 September, http://reasoningweb.org/2012/
- COMMA 2012: 4th Int. Conf. on Computational Models of Argument
    10-12 September, http://www.kr.tuwien.ac.at/events/comma2012/
- DEXA 2012: 23rd Int. Conf. on Database and Expert Systems
    Applications 03-07 September, http://www.dexa.org/
- 2nd Workshop "Datalog 2.0"
    11-13 September, http://www.dbai.tuwien.ac.at/event/datalog-2.0/

The Reasoning Web Summer School is a great opportunity particularly
for young researchers to combine with attendance of the conference.
Submissions by summer school participants are particularly encouraged.
