Subject: Call for papers is open for RuleML 2011--submission deadline is May 22nd

[The following announcement is being sent on behalf of the organizers of RuleML-2011.  OASIS is a co-sponsor of the event.]





5th International Symposium on Linked Rules: Research Based, Industry Focused


Westin Diplomat, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, 3-5 November 2011




About RuleML 2011@BRF


In 2011, two instalments of the RuleML Symposium will take place. The first one will be held in conjunction with IJCAI 2011 in Barcelona, Spain, in July.  The second one will be co-located with the Business Rule Forum to be held in early November in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA. The second instalment will include the RuleML Challenge Award which, this year, is dedicated to Rules and Ontologies.





RuleML-2011@BRF is a research-based, industry-focused symposium: its main goal is to build a bridge between academia and industry in the field of rules and semantic technology, and so to stimulate the cooperation and interoperability between business and research, by bringing together rule system providers, participants in rule standardization efforts, open source communities, practitioners, and researchers. The concept of the symposium has also advanced continuously in the face of extremely rapid progress in practical rule and event processing technologies. As a result, RuleML-2011 will feature hands-on demonstrations and challenges alongside a wide range of thematic tracks. It will thus be an exciting venue to exchange new ideas and share experiences on all issues related to the engineering, management, integration, interoperation, and interchange of rules in distributed enterprise intranets and open environments alike.





As in the previous years, the Symposium will be organized in tracks; specifically, the RuleML-2011@BRF focus will be on the following areas:


*** Rules, Semantic Technology, and Cross-Industry Standards

*** Rules and Automated Reasoning

*** Rule-Based Distributed/Multi-Agent Systems

*** Rule Transformation and Extraction

*** Vocabularies, Ontologies, and Business rules

*** NIEM and Rules

*** Cloud Computing and Rules

*** Fuzzy Rules and Uncertainty 

*** Rules and Norms

*** Rule-Based Policies, Reputation and Trust

*** Rule-based Event Processing and Reaction Rules

*** General Topics


Submissions on general rule topics are welcome, such as:

  - Progress in rule language specification (in XML Schema, Relax NG, etc.)

  - Implemented tools for rule bases (e.g. XML and RDF rule validators)

  - Rule interchange and reasoning

  - Execution models, rule engines, and development environments

  - Graphical processing, modeling and rendering of rules

  - Rules and NLP

  - Rule-based applications

  - Usability and effectiveness of rule-based systems and languages case studies, experience reports, and industrial problem statements are

particularly encouraged.


RuleML-2011 Challenge


The RuleML-2011 Challenge is one of the highlights of RuleML-2011.  Prizes will be awarded to the two best applications, one for the focus theme and one for the other categories.


This year, the Challenge will be focused on the theme:

*** Knowledge Intensive Applications Combining Rules and Ontologies ***


The call for demos is available on:  http://2011.ruleml.org/america/challenge


Submission Guidelines


Authors are invited to submit original contributions of practical relevance and technical rigor in the field, experience reports and show case/use case

demonstrations of effective, practical, deployable rule-based technologies or applications in distributed environments. Papers must be in English and may be submitted at




Please upload all submissions as PDF files in LNCS format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).


The selected papers will be published in book form in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The selected demo papers will be published in CEUR proceedings.
