The International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR) is a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results concerning Web Reasoning and Rule Systems. RR 2010 builds on the success of the first three International Conferences on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (see, held in Innsbruck, Austria (2007), Karlsruhe, Germany (2008), and Chantilly, Virginia, USA (2009), which received enthusiastic support from the Web Reasoning community. In 2010, RR will continue the excellence of the new series and aim to attract the best Web Reasoning and Rules researchers from all over the world.
