Reasoning is widely recognized as the most challenging application area of the modern Semantic Web Technology in terms of performance and scalability demands, involving exciting research on ontology languages, inference logic, data management, scale-up techniques, etc. Reasoning is widely adopted by the social media, bioinformatics, smart cities, and many other domains working at the leading edge of the science and technology. The availability of the large-scale computing infrastructures and software platforms targeting them (such as LarKC - the Large Knowledge Collider, has enabled the application of reasoning to solving the emerging problems of the modern eScience, such as Big Data.
