The Reasoning Web Summer School 2018, as part of the annual series of summer schools, welcomes applications from Master and PhD students as well postdoctoral researchers, young researchers, and senior researchers wishing to learn about the research areas of Semantic Web and related sub-areas such as Linked Data and Knowledge Graphs, Ontologies, Rules, and Logic.

Participants to the summer school will have the opportunity to attend lectures, to be involved in working groups concerning small case studies or research tasks to focus on and to be presented in a final plenary session, discuss ideas and closely interact with leading researchers in the Semantic Web community and beyond.

This year school program will include the following topics and lecturers (additional names will come shortly, whilst the final school program will be available at:

Information Extraction for Knowledge Graph Construction - Philipp Cimiano, University of Bielefeld
Semantic Data in the Cloud - Steffen Staab and Daniel Janke, University of Koblenz Landau
Machine Learning with and for Knowledge Graphs - Heiko Paulheim, University of Mannheim
Stream Reasoning - Emanuele Della Valle, Politecnico di Milano
Learning and Reasoning in Knowledge Graphs - Daria Stepanova, Max Planck Institute
Normative reasoning for the Semantic Web - Guido Gorvernatori, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation
Efficient SPARQL queries on very large Knowledge Graphs - Hannah Bast, University of Freiburg

Although no specific background knowledge is required for attending the summer school, basics of knowledge representation and the Semantic Web (including technologies such as RDF, OWL, etc.) will be helpful for benefitting from the contents of school. Students are also committed to a full participation for the whole duration of the school.


The registration fees for attending the RW Summer School will be 450€. This includes lectures and teaching sessions, lunches, coffee breaks, school proceedings and a social event.
