Bucharest, Romania

16 - 18 September 2024

Call for papers

Call Summary

The 8th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning (RuleML+RR 2024) 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. 

RuleML+RR 2024 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. 

The RuleML+RR 2024 conference is part of the event “Declarative AI: Rules, Reasoning, Decisions, and Explanations” and is co-located with DecisionCAMP 2024 and the Reasoning Web Summer School. Apart from the main track, it features the Rule Challenge, a Doctoral Consortium, an Industry Track, and a Project Networking Session as associated events.


RuleML+RR welcomes research from all areas of Rules and Reasoning. The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:

Ontology/Semantic Web

Rules for AI and AI for Rules

Rules and Reasoning / Logics

Technical Aspects of Rule Systems / Rule Technology

Rules and Interoperability

System Descriptions, Applications and Experiences of Ontologies and Rules in

Submission and Publication

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 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 (

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

Papers should be written in English can be submitted using EasyChair: 

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS) after the conference. The best papers will be considered for special issues of the Theory and Practice of Logic Programming or the Transactions on Graph Data and Knowledge journals.

The best paper will be awarded the the RuleML+RR Harold Boley Distinguished Paper Award 2024 and best student paper will be awarded the RuleML+RR Best Student Paper Award 2024.

Important Dates

For each of these deadlines, a cut-off point of 23:59 AOE applies.
