RoW06 - Reasoning on the Web Workshop at WWW2006, Edinburgh, UK, May 2006 http://www.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/WBS/phi/RoW06/ *note the modified submission deadline* Second Call for Papers ====================== The advent of the Semantic Web marks a turning point in the development of the World Wide Web. As Web content is being annotated using ontologies, a huge amount of knowledge will become accessible for intelligent systems and agents on and off the Web. At the core of these developments are reasoning technologies for ontologies, inspired by research and technology stemming from automated deduction, artificial intelligence, and mathematical logic. While RDF and OWL have been established as standard ontology languages by the W3C, and W3C standardization efforts for a Semantic Web Rules Language are under way, both theory and practice of reasoning on the web are in rapid development. The quest for suitable ontology language paradigms, reasoning systems, and the realization of application scenarios is ongoing and being pursued with frenzy. With respect to the realization of practical reasoning support on the web, research is currently faced with serous challenges which need to be mastered, including the following. * Providing scalable reasoning support in the face of the amount of data on the Web. * Establishing reasoning technology which can deal with the heterogeneous nature of real data on the Web. * Realizing reasoning in a modular and distributed way suitable for Web applications. * Providing reasoning systems which can be utilized by non-experts. * Developing convincing use cases which show the added value of Semantic Web technology to a larger audience. - Aim and Scope This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners concerned with reasoning technology for the Semantic Web, in order to stimulate the exchange of ideas and results on Web reasoning. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the web * Reasoning with heterogeneous ontologies * Distributed reasoning on the web * Rule-based languages for the web * Ontology languages and their relationships * Reasoning systems for the Semantic Web * Web applications of reasoning technology - Submissions We invite the submission of original papers that have not been submitted for review or published elsewhere. Submitted papers must be written in English and should not exceed 8 pages in the case of research and experience papers, and 2 pages in the case of position papers. All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality, relevance, originality, significance, and soundness. Papers must be submitted directly by email in PDF format to RoW06_(on)_aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de. Authors must adhere to the formatting instructions given for regular WWW2006 papers. - Presentation Selected papers must be presented at the workshop. At least one author of each paper must register for the main conference before the early registration deadline. The workshop will include extra time for audience discussion of the presentation allowing the group to have a better understanding of the issues, challenges, and ideas being presented. Publication Accepted papers will be published in official workshop proceedings, which will be distributed during the workshop. We intend to invite authors of the best papers to submit revised and extended versions of their papers for a special issue of a major Semantic Web journal. - Dates (final! note the changes!)
