The Summer School will also be open to senior researchers wishing to learn about Semantic Web issues related to their own fields of research. For further details please visit http://rw2013.uni-mannheim.de As in the previous years, we managed again to attract a distinguished group of expert lecturers, the majority of which will - apart from their lectures - also be present for the duration of the school to interact with students. Interaction with senior researchers and establishing contacts within young researchers is a main focus of the school, which will be supported through social activities and an interactive, amicable atmosphere. The summer school will be co-located with related events. This will be a great opportunity to attend major events in the area ahead of the school. As a further highlight, we want to point out the opportunity of PhD students to present their research at the RR 2013 Doctoral Consortium. Joint applications for the Reasoning Web Summer School 2013 and the RR 2013 Doctoral Consortium are explicitly encouraged.
