RuleML+RR 2023 : The 7th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning
Call For Papers
The 7th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning (RuleML+RR 2023) aims to bring together rigorous researchers and inventive practitioners, interested in the foundations and applications of rules and reasoning in academia, industry, engineering, business, finance, healthcare and other application areas. It provides a forum for stimulating cooperation and cross-fertilization between the many different communities focused on the research, development and applications of rule-based systems. High-quality papers related to theoretical advances, novel technologies, and artificial intelligence applications that involve rule-based representation and reasoning are solicited.
RuleML+RR welcomes research from all areas of Rules and Reasoning.
The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:
### Ontology/Semantic Web
* Vocabularies, ontologies, and business rules
* Ontology-based mediated query answering
* Rules for knowledge graphs creation and interoperation
* Rules for knowledge graph embeddings and ontology learning
* Rule-based data integration
* Data management and data interoperability for web data
* Distributed agent-based systems for the web
### Rules for AI and AI for Rules
* Rule-based approaches to natural language processing
* Applications of rule technologies with explainable AI (xAI) elements
* Machine learning approaches involving rules
* Explainable AI approaches based on rules
* FAIRness approaches based on rules
* Rule-based approaches for intelligent systems and intelligent information access
### Rules and Reasoning / Logics
* Non-classical logics and the web
* Description Logics, existential rules
* Higher-order and modal rules
* Constraint programming
* Logic programming, ASP, and datalog
* Rule based argumentation
* Rule-based approaches to agents and multi-agent systems
* Reasoning with incomplete, inconsistent and uncertain data
* Non-monotonic, common-sense, and closed-world reasoning
* Inconsistency-tolerant rule reasoning
### Technical Aspects of Rule Systems / Rule Technology
* Streaming data and complex event processing
* Web reasoning and distributed rule inference and execution
* Scalability and expressive power of logics for the Semantic Web
* Scalability and expressive power of logics for rules
* Data quality and benchmarks
### Rules and Interoperability
* Rule markup languages, rule interchange formats, and rule standards
* Rule-based policies, reputation, and trust
* Rules and human language technology
### System Descriptions, Applications and Experiences of Ontologies and Rules
* Climate change monitoring, mitigation & adaptation
* Environmental protection
* Agriculture and agri-food
* Healthcare and life sciences
* Equity and social welfare
* Law, regulation, and finance
* Digital Twins
* Industrial contexts
* Production & business rule systems
Submission and Publication
High-quality papers related to theoretical advances, novel technologies, and artificial intelligence applications concerning explainable algorithmic decision-making that involve rule-based representation and reasoning are solicited.
We accept the following submission formats for papers:
Long papers (up to 15 pages in LNCS style including references)
Short papers (up to 8 pages in LNCS style including references)
Long papers should present original and significant research and/or development results. Short papers should concisely describe general results or specific applications, systems, or position statements. All submissions must be prepared in Springer's LNCS style (http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/authors.html).
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with formal proceedings. Double submission to a workshop with informal proceedings is allowed. Papers put on arXiv are also allowed as long as they are not refereed (i.e., formally reviewed by peers). Submissions to the RuleML+RR conference
have the page limit of 15 (/8) pages including references
are not anonymous
additional material can be included as an external report. Appendices to the submission are not permitted.
The paper should be self-contained. Papers can be submitted using EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=declarativeai2023
In addition to regular submissions, RuleML+RR 2023 will include the
17th International Rule Challenge (https://2023.declarativeai.net/events/ruleml-rr/ruleml-rr-rule-challenge) and
the 7th Doctoral Consortium (https://2023.declarativeai.net/events/ruleml-rr/ruleml-rr-doctoral-consortium)
which will have their own proceedings published in CEUR. RuleML+RR 2023 is co-located with DecisionCAMP 2023 (https://2023.declarativeai.net/events/decisioncamp) and the 19th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2023) (https://2023.declarativeai.net/events/reasoning-web) as part of Declarative AI 2023 (https://2023.declarativeai.net/).
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS) after the conference. A selection of the best accepted papers of RuleML+RR 2023 (2-6 papers) will be invited for submission to the Journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP).
The best paper will be awarded the RuleML+RR Harold Boley Distinguished Paper award and best student paper will be awarded RuleML+RR Best Student Paper award.
