Call for Papers
RuleML+RR 2022: 6th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning - deadline extended
Part of DeclarativeAI and co-located with DecisionCAMP and the 18th Reasoning Web Summer School
26th-28th September, Virtual
The RuleML+RR 2022 conference is part of the event “Declarative AI: Rules, Reasoning, Decisions, and Explanations” and is co-located with DecisionCAMP 2022 and the Reasoning Web Summer School. It features the RuleChallenge and a Doctoral Consortium as associated events.
The 6th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning (RuleML+RR 2022) is the leading international joint conference in the field of rule-based reasoning. One of the main goals of RuleML+RR is to build bridges between academia and industry in the area of semantic reasoning. See https://2022.declarativeai.net/.
RuleML+RR 2022 aims to bring together rigorous researchers and inventive practitioners, interested in the foundations and applications of rules and reasoning. It provides a forum for stimulating cooperation and cross-fertilization between different communities focused on the research, development, and applications of rule-based systems. We are looking for high-quality papers related to theoretical advances, novel technologies, and artificial intelligence applications that involve rule-based representation and reasoning.

Main conference track
High-quality papers related to theoretical advances, novel technologies, and artificial intelligence applications concerning explainable algorithmic decision-making that involve rule-based representation and reasoning are solicited.
We accept the following submission formats for papers:
Long papers (up to 15 pages in LNCS style including references)
Short papers (up to 8 pages in LNCS style including references)
Long papers should present original and significant research and/or development results. Short papers should concisely describe general results or specific applications, systems, or position statements. All submissions must be prepared in Springer's LNCS style (http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/authors.html).
Submissions to the RuleML+RR conference
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with formal proceedings. Double submission to a workshop with informal proceedings is allowed. Papers put on arXiv are also allowed as long as they are not refereed (i.e., formally reviewed by peers). Submissions to the RuleML+RR conference
have the page limit of 15 (/8) pages including references
are not anonymous
additional material can be included as an external report. Appendices to the submission are not permitted.
The paper should be self-contained. Papers can be submitted using EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=declarativeai22
In addition to regular submissions, RuleML+RR 2022 will include the
16th International Rule Challenge,
Industry track, and
which will have their own proceedings published in CEUR. RuleML+RR 2022 is co-located with DecisionCAMP 2022 and the 18th Reasoning Web Summer School (RW 2022).
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS) after the conference. A selection of the accepted papers of RuleML+RR 2021 will be invited for submission to the Journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP) published by Cambridge University Press.
May 24thJune 19th: Title and abstract submission June 2ndJune 23: Paper submission deadline – strict!
August 1st: Notification of acceptance
September 26th-28th: Conference
For each of these deadlines, a cut-off point of 23:59 AOE applies.
