The amount of data exposed in the form of RDF and OWL continues to increase exponentially. Some approaches have already been proposed for the scalable reasoning over several language profiles such as RDFS, OWL Horst, OWL 2 EL, OWL 2 RL etc. But all those approaches are limited to the particular ruleset that the reasoner supports. In this work, we propose the idea for a rule-based distributed reasoning framework that can support any given ruleset and highlight some of the challenges that needs to be solved in order to implement such a framework.
