RuleML+RR 2018: Call for Posters

RuleML+RR 2018 calls for additional short poster papers related to theoretical advances, novel technologies, and innovative applications concerning knowledge representation and reasoning with rules. In addition to the main conference, RuleML+RR 2018 will host an Industry Track, a Doctoral Consortium, DecisionCAMP, the 12th International Rule Challenge, and the 14th Reasoning Web Summer School.

RuleML+RR 2018 will take place in Luxembourg on September 18th-21th 2018 and will be part of the Luxembourg Logic for AI Summit (LuxlogAI), "Methods and Tools for Responsible AI", bringing together RuleML+RR 2018, DecisionCAMP 2018, the 14th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2018), the 4th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence (GCAI 2018) and the annual meeting of the Deduction Systems group (Deduktionstreffen 2018) of the German Gesellschaft für Informatik (GIe.V.).


Topics of particular interest include:
  • Rule-based languages for intelligent information access and for the semantic web
  • Vocabularies, ontologies, and business rules
  • Ontology-based data access
  • Data management, and data interoperability for web data
  • Distributed agent-based systems for the web
  • Scalability and expressive power of logics for the semantic web
  • Reasoning with incomplete, inconsistent and uncertain data
  • Non-monotonic, common-sense, and closed-world reasoning for web data
  • Non-classical logics and the Web
  • Constraint programming
  • Logic programming
  • Production & business rules systems
  • Streaming data and complex event processing
  • Rules for machine learning, knowledge extraction and information retrieval
  • Rule-based approaches to natural language processing
  • Rule discovery, extraction and transformation
  • Rules and ontology learning
  • Deep Learning for rules and ontologies
  • Neural Networks and logic rules
  • Neural Networks and ontologies
  • Rule-based approaches to agents
  • Higher-order and modal rules
  • Rules for knowledge graphs
  • Pragmatic web reasoning and distributed rule inference/rule execution
  • Big data reasoning with rules
  • Rule markup languages and rule interchange formats
  • Rule-based policies, reputation, and trust
  • Scalability and expressive power of logics for rules
  • System descriptions, applications and experiences
  • Rules and human language technology
  • Rules in online market research and online marketing
  • Applications of rule technologies in health-care and life sciences
  • Applications of rule technologies in law, regulation and finance
  • Industrial applications of rules
  • Rules and social media
  • Rules of ethics, laws, policies, and regulations
Particularly encouraged are submissions that combine one or several of the above topics with the overall focus theme of the LuxLogAI Summit: Methods and Tools for Responsible AI.

This year, the poster session of RuleML+RR 2018 will be associated with that of Deduktionstreffen 2018. The joint poster session will take place on Fri 21 Sep.

Best poster award

A Best Poster Award will be given to the best poster presentation. Two evaluation criteria will be taken into account: Research quality: originality and technical quality of the work, as well as the methodology, execution and evaluation of the results. Presentation: the extent to which the poster is able to effectively convey the research to an audience (e.g., consider clarity, self-explanatory nature and layout).


Poster papers describing a poster for the poster session and ranging between 2-5 pages can be submitted at EasyChair for the RuleML+RR 2018 Poster Session track.

Please upload all submissions in LNCS format. To ensure high quality, submitted poster papers will be carefully peer-reviewed by the PC members based on significance and relevance for the community. Accepted poster papers will published as CEUR Proceedings.
