We invite you to attend the 2008 International RuleML Symposium on Rule

Interchange and Applications (RuleML-2008) to be held during October 30-31,

2008 in Orlando, Florida. As this is a relatively new event, being only its

2nd year, participants can make a difference about shaping the future

direction and structure of the field, including about rule standards

supporting their own approaches and about their own possible involvement in

the organization of future events.


Co-located with the 11th International Business Rules Forum, RuleML-2008

provides a unique opportunity to exchange your ideas about practical

distributed rule technologies and rule-based applications. Meet the Web

experts and discuss with them status and progress of the rules technology.

Discuss your recent work with colleagues in the informal atmosphere of the

symposium. You should not miss the high-quality technical presentations, the

innovative applications presented in detail and the state of the art reports

of the plenary speakers. RuleML-2008 is a must for all people active in

technologies or entering the field.


The scope of RuleML-2008 covers all topics relevant to rule-based

technologies, rule interchange formats and rule-based applications as well

discussions of lessons learned that have to be taken into account when

employing rule-based technologies in distributed, (partially) open,

heterogeneous environments.




Technical Program



The symposium will feature a strong, single-track technical program

consisting of:


* Keynote speakers:

  o Michael Kifer (State University of New York at Stony Brook), on "Rule

    Interchange Format: Not Just Syntax".

    Joint keynote between RuleML-2008 and RR2008.

  o David Luckham (Stanford University, USA) on "The Power of Events: An

  o Paul Haley (Haley Systems, Inc) on "Event and Process Semantics will


  o Benjamin Grosof (Vulcan, Inc.) on the SILK KRR system of the

  rule-based systems selected in a peer-reviewed fashion by an

  international program committee.

* Papers will be published as a Springer LNCS proceedings. A related journal

  special issue (IEEE TKDE) on "Rule Representation, Interchange and
