The "Reasoning Web" series of annual Summer Schools was started in 2005 on behalf of the work package "Education and Training (ET)" of the Network of Excellence REWERSE. The series was traditionally focussed on foundational issues concerning the development and the use of rule-based languages in the Semantic Web.
The Summer School Reasoning Web 2008 takes stock of the actual use of Semantic Web rule languages by presenting the state-of-the-art in research areas that constitute the current and the promising application fields for Reasoning on the Web.
Besides laying out the basic foundational material, Reasoning Web 2008 also presents a range of applications, helping students to find interesting topics for further research. Lecturers who are leading researchers in such diverse fields as Bioinformatics, Web Services, Multimedia, and Natural Language Processing, will point out which Semantic Web ideas and techniques have actually been adopted so far, which weren't (and why), and which application needs are still waiting to be tackled with semantic techniques.
