Marco Square). DATE 7-11 September, 2008 DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS May 16, 2008 INTRODUCTION Reasoning Web 2008 is the fourth edition of a successful series of summer schools devoted to semantic web reasoning and applications, supported by the Network of Excellence REWERSE until 2007. In 2008 the school will cover basic foundational material and will survey a range of successful applications. The program will include tutorials as well as hands-on activities. The school is meant to help the participants to identify which Semantic Web ideas and techniques have actually been adopted so far, which weren't (and why), and which application needs are still waiting to be tackled with semantic techniques. To ensure a high ratio between tutors and students the school will have a limited number of participants (see application details below). A small number of scholarships will be available, details can be found on the summer school web page. PROGRAM 1. Foundations of Knowledge representation and Reasoning - T. Eiter, A. Polleres, U.
