4th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning
29 June - 1 July 2020, Oslo, Norway
RuleML + RR 2020
The RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2020 is an initiative of the RuleML+RR community to attract and promote student research in Artificial Intelligence, especially research on rule-based formalism and reasoning. It offers students a close contact with leading experts in the field, as well as the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas in a dynamic and friendly setting. This DC is organized as part of Declarative AI 2020: Rules, Reasoning, Decisions, and Explanations (24 June - 1 July 2020, Oslo, Norway).
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 2020.
Paper submission: May 1, 2020
Author notification: May 15, 2020
Camera-ready submission: June 1, 2020
Doctoral Consortium: 29 June - 1 July 2020, Oslo, Norway
For each of these deadlines, a cut-off point of 23:59 AOE (anywhere on earth) applies.
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 RuleML+RR, and also in the form of posters.
Accepted papers will be published online as part of http://ceur-ws.org Proceedings, which are broadly indexed, e.g., by SCOPUS and listed in standard bibliographic databases such as DBLP.
DC papers are limited to 8 pages written in English following the LNCS format http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html and submitted electronically in PDF format jointly with a maximum 2 pages CV. Please submit your paper and CV via:
