Summary

The RuleML+RR Doctoral Consortium 2020 is an initiative of the RuleML+RR community to attract and promote student research in Artificial Intelligence, especially research on rule-based formalism and reasoning. It offers students a close contact with leading experts in the field, as well as the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas in a dynamic and friendly setting. This DC is organized as part of Declarative AI 2020: Rules, Reasoning, Decisions, and Explanations (24 June - 1 July 2020, Oslo, Norway).

We invite PhD students at an early or intermediate stage of their PhD studies as well as exceptional Master’s students who are interested in pursuing a PhD to submit papers describing their research on any of the topics of interest of RuleML+RR 2020.
