Call For Papers: RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2018

The RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2018 is an initiative of the RuleML and RR communities to attract and promote student research in rules and reasoning. It offers students a close contact with leading experts on the field, as well as the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas in a dynamic and friendly setting.

We invite PhD students at an early or intermediate stage of their PhD studies as well as exceptional Master’s students who are interested in pursuing a PhD to submit papers describing their research on any of the topics of interest of RuleML+RR 2018, available at

The submissions should cover the following aspects:

- A clear formulation of the research question and the motivation.

- An identification of the significant problems in the field of research.

- An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the state of existing solutions.

- A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the results achieved so far.

- A sketch of the applied research methodology and its positioning in the field.

- A description of the student project’s contribution to the problem solution.

- A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.

- A research plan and the potential achievements.

The accepted DC papers will be presented to an interested audience and will be discussed with a panel of senior researchers from academia and the industry. Students will present their work through brief oral presentations during a dedicated session of the RuleML+RR main track, but also in the form of posters.

Accepted papers will be published online as part of Proceedings, which are broadly indexed, e.g., by SCOPUS and listed in standard bibliographic databases such as DBLP. This year, a selection of the best Doctoral Consortium papers will also be included as short papers in the main track Springer LNCS proceedings.
