    The 9th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2013)
     Mannheim, Germany, July 30 - August 2, 2013

co-located with the

- 7th Internationall Conference on Web Reasoning and
  Rule Systems (RR 2013),

The Reasoning Web Summer School 2013 is primarily intended for
postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students, postdocs, and other young
researchers investigating aspects related to Reasoning on the Semantic
Web and related issues.  The Summer School will also be open to senior
researchers wishing to learn about Semantic Web issues related to their
own fields of research.

For further details please visit http://rw2013.uni-mannheim.de

As in the previous years, we managed again to attract a distinguished
group of expert lecturers, the majority of which will - apart from their
lectures - also be present for the duration of the school to interact
with students.

Interaction with senior researchers and establishing contacts within
young researchers is a main focus of the school, which will be supported
through social activities and an interactive, amicable atmosphere.

The summer school will be co-located with related events. This will be a
great opportunity to attend major events in the area ahead of the school.

As a further highlight, we want to point out the opportunity of PhD
students to present their research at the RR 2013 Doctoral Consortium.
Joint applications for the Reasoning Web Summer School 2013 and the RR
2013 Doctoral Consortium are explicitly encouraged.  More details will be
announced soon on the RR 2013 website.
