INTRODUCTION
Reasoning Web 2008 is the fourth edition of a successful series of  
summer
schools devoted to semantic web reasoning and applications, supported by
the Network of Excellence REWERSE until 2007.  In 2008 the school will
cover  basic foundational material and will survey a range of successful
applications. The program will include tutorials as well as  hands-on
activities.  The school is meant to help the participants to identify
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.

To ensure a high ratio between tutors and students the school will  
have a
limited number of participants (see application details below). A small
number of scholarships will be available, details can be found on the  
summer
school web page.
