The first edition of the International Joint Conference on Rules and
Reasoning RuleML+RR 2017 (London, 15-17 July 2017) focuses on
theoretical advances, novel technologies, as well as innovative
applications concerning knowledge representation and reasoning with
rules. Stemming from the synergy between the well-known premier
RuleML and RR events, the conference will provide a forum for
stimulating cooperation and cross-fertilisation between the many
different communities focused on the research, development and
applications of rule-based systems.
We solicit proposals for tutorials to be presented at the RuleML+RR
2017 conference. Tutorials should concern research or application
areas fitting the conference scope, and may introduce novices to
major topics in the area, introduce experts to a special subarea,
motivate and explain a topic of emerging importance, survey a mature
area of research and/or practice, present a novel synthesis
combining distinct lines of work, introduce the audience to an
external topic that can relate to research in the area, mentor
researchers (particularly, junior researchers) on a relevant topic.
Tutorial attendance is complimentary for all RuleML+RR 2017
Tutorial proposals should be submitted via easychair:
Each submission (up to two pages) should include the following
* A title.
* An abstract.
* The preferred duration (up to half-day).
* A description that outlines which topics would be covered, and the
depth to which they would be covered. If different length options
are possible, the proposal should identify which parts would be
included for each length.
* A short description of the intended audience and any prerequisite
knowledge for attendees.
* A brief biography of the proposed presenter(s), along with contact
* If (part of) the tutorial material or an earlier version of it
has been presented elsewhere, the proposal should indicate those
respective events (and dates), and describe how the current proposal
differs from the previous ones.
A two-page extended abstract of the tutorial will be included in the
conference proceedings. Tutorial slides are expected to be made
available online to conference participants.
