RuleML Webinar

From RuleML Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The RuleML Webinars feature rule topics of shared interest to the RuleML community. Each Webinar currently consists of a 30-minute presentation interleaved with / followed by about 10 minutes of discussion. Presenters provide their slides (PDFized as exemplified in the Title column below) prior to the Skype-based Webinars (using "Share Screens"). The events typically happen on the last Wednesday of the month at 6 AM Pacific / 9 AM Eastern / 10 AM Atlantic / 2 PM UK / 3 PM Central Europe / 4 PM Greece. Discussions sometimes continue in the RuleML Telecons immediately after the Webinars -- and have led to constructive feedback, new connections, and off-line follow-up. The organization of this Webinar series was started in January 2015 by Harold Boley, who ran it until June 2019. Starting in July 2019, the RuleML Webinar organization has been continued by Tomáš Kliegr, who should be contacted by prospective presenters.
