The benefits of e-commerce cannot be exploited fully by consumers because of the lack of
trust and confidence in online cross-border purchases. To achieve fair trading and
transparency in commercial communications and transactions, effective complaint mechanisms
need to be established and involved in e-business activities. This workshop aims at
bringing together academics, researchers, professionals and industrial practitioners to
discuss issues involved in modeling ontology of cross-border business regulations,
among other things focusing on complaint regulations.
 
We seek original contributions on the following issues of interest, but not limited to:
 
   - Representation and organization of regulatory ontologies: modularization, layering,
     reusability, maintainability and extensibility, etc;
 
   - Regulatory metadata standards (legal/leg-XML, ADR/ODR-XML,);
 
   - Policies and complaint regulations in Policy RuleML.
 
   - Ontologies of: complaints, complaint resolutions, complainants, evidences, etc;
 
   - Sensitivity on and harmonization of cross-border business regulations;
 
   - Experiences with projects and applications of regulatory ontologies;
 
   - Multilingual representation of regulatory ontologies;
