The 16th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2020) 
24-26 June, 2020 
Virtual event (free registration)


Part of "Declarative AI 2020: Rules, Reasoning, Decisions and Explanations" 
(DeclarativeAI 2020, https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/iFF9C6XQ07t1W7z4f6cE98?domain=2020.declarativeai.net) 

The purpose of the Reasoning Web Summer School is to disseminate recent 
advances on reasoning techniques and related issues that are of particular 
interest to Semantic Web and Linked Data applications. It is primarily intended 
for postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students, postdocs, young researchers, and senior 
researchers wishing to deepen their knowledge. In 2020, the broad theme of the 
school is: 

“Declarative Artificial Intelligence” 

As in the previous years, lectures in the summer school will be given by a 
distinguished group of expert lecturers.

This year the school is part of Declarative AI 2020 (https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/iFF9C6XQ07t1W7z4f6cE98?domain=2020.declarativeai.net), 
an event which is co-organised by SINTEF AS, University of Oslo, and 
Norwegian University of Science and Technology, under the umbrella of the SIRIUS Centre for Scalable Data Access. Due to the current situation regarding the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, Declarative AI 2020 will be held as an ONLINE event.
