Call For Papers

on “Explainable Artificial Intelligence"
Bolzano, Italy, 20 - 24 Sep 2019
Late application deadline: 20 August 2019

The 15th Reasoning Web Summer School brings together leading AI researchers to share their ideas and knowledge about how to make AI more explainable. The school is a five-day intensive training course that interleaves lectures and hands-on sessions. Participants learn about exciting new methods and technologies, and at the same time get to know their peers and senior researchers in their area.

Reasoning Web is co-located with RuleML+RR 2019, GCAI 2019, and DecisionCAMP 2019, which come together for the Bolzano Rules and Artificial Intelligence Summit (BRAIN).


This year’s school program includes the following topics and lecturers:

* Logic-Based Learning - Alessandra Russo, Mark Law, Krysia Broda (Imperial College London)
* Explainable AI Planning - Jörg Hoffmann (Saarland University), Daniele Magazzeni (King’s College London)
* Explaining Data with Formal Concept Analysis - Sebastian Rudolph (TU Dresden), Bernhard Ganter (TU Dresden), Gerd Stumme (Universität Kassel)
* Knowledge Representation and Rule Mining in Entity-Centric Knowledge Bases - Fabian Suchanek (Télécom ParisTech), Jonathan Lajus (Télécom ParisTech), Armand Boschin (Télécom ParisTech), Gerhard Weikum (Max-Planck Institut für Informatik)
* Provenance in Databases: Principles and Applications - Pierre Senellart (École Normale Supérieure Paris)
* Efficient Reasoning and Explanation in Description Logic Ontologies - Yevgeny Kazakov, Birte Glimm (University of Ulm)
* Modest Explanations in a Memoryless World - Holger Hermanns (Saarland University), Arnd Hartmanns (University of Twente)
* Explanation-Friendly Query Answering Under Uncertainty - Maria Vanina Martinez (Universidad de Buenos Aires), Gerardo I. Simari (Universidad Nacional del Sur, Bahia Blanca)
* Constraint Learning - Stefano Teso (KU Leuven)

RW 2019 is aimed at a wide audience of young post-graduate researchers, most typically early-stage Ph.D. candidates, but also advanced Master students and more senior Ph.D. candidates and PostDocs who want to deepen their knowledge. Although no specific background knowledge is required for attending the summer school, basics of knowledge representation and reasoning will be helpful for benefiting from the contents of the school. Students are also committed to a full participation for the whole duration of the school.


Students and researchers interested in participating should submit a short application by 20 August 2019 via EasyChair using the following link: Applications sent before this deadline might still receive notification before early registration.

The application should consist of a single pdf file that includes:
* A short statement of motivation (half a page)
* A CV (one page)
* Whether a letter of invitation is needed for visa applications


The registration fees for attending the RW Summer School will be 300 EUR (if your RW registration is bundled with the one for BRAIN 2019) and 350 EUR (if you choose to only register for RW), respectively. This includes all lectures and teaching sessions, lunches, coffee breaks, and a social event.


A limited number of grants will be available for selected students who would otherwise not be able to attend the summer school. As such, please ask for financial support in your application only if this is the necessary condition for you to participate in the summer school.
