############################################################################

The World Wide Web has become the carrier for the largest human knowledge
repository in history. As its knowledge bases are growing towards a
practically "infinite" volume, Web-scale Knowledge Representation, Retrieval,
and Reasoning (Web-KR3) is becoming a real issue and an urgent task. Although
the Web community has developed a number of knowledge representation
languages and reasoning methods, when the volume goes Web-scale, existing
approaches meet many challenging problems, such as scalability, inconsistency,
uncertainty and dynamics. Hence, a unified approach to Web-KR3 needs to be
developed.

This workshop thus aims to bringing together researchers from Web research,
Artificial Intelligence (AI), high performance computing, cognitive science,
knowledge management, and machine learning to discuss all issues of Web-KR3
in a synergistic setting. The workshop is a full day workshop and will be
co-located with the 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conferences on Web
Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology.

Topics of Interest
+++++++++++++++++++

Research contributions should be related but are not limited to one or more
of the following topics:


* Scalable knowledge representation languages for the Web.
* Expressivity of Web-scale common sense knowledge.
* Parallelization and distribution techniques for Web-scale knowledge retrieval
and reasoning.
* Inconsistency, uncertainty, and relevancy of Web-scale reasoning.
* Granularity of knowledge representation, retrieval, and reasoning.
* New forms of inductive and deductive reasoning (e.g. cognitive and nature
inspired methods).
* Web-scale ontology and rule interchange and integration.
(e.g. via OWL 2, RIF, and RuleML)
* Dynamics of knowledge updating and forgetting on the Web.
* Distributed query answering over Web-scale data.
* Cross-fertilizing Web-KR3 with Distributed AI, Distributed Description Logic,
and Distributed Logic Programming.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
On-Line Submissions and Publication
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

All submissions for the Web-KR3 2010 Workshop should be submitted through the
WI/IAT 2010 Workshop Paper Submission system.
http://wi-consortium.org/cyberchair/wiiat10/scripts/ws_submit.php
All submissions are to be 4 pages in length (IEEE-CS format). A maximum of one
additional page can be included, but is subject to a surcharge on the conference
registration fee.


All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee
on the basis of:
* relevance to the workshop topic of interests.
* significance and technical quality
* originality
* format and clarity

Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Press in the WI/IAT 2010 Workshop
Proceedings and will be provided on the workshop day. The papers in the workshop
proceedings will also be available in the IEEE Digital Library, the ACM Digital
Library, and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI), etc.
