     Co-located with the International Semantic Web Conference '09

The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR) is
a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results
concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. RR 2009 builds on the
success of The first two International Conferences on Web Reasoning
and Rule Systems, which received enthusiastic support from the Web
Rules community. In 2009, RR will continue the excellence of the new
series and aim to attract the best Web Reasoning and Rules researchers

    * Implemented tools and systems
    * Standardization
    * Ontology usability
    * Ontology languages and their relationships

    * Rule interchange formats and Rule markup languages
    * Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the web
    * Approximate reasoning techniques for the Web
