CALL FOR PAPERS
The 7th International Symposium on Rules and the Web
Seattle Metropolitan Area, USA, July 11-13, 2013.
The annual International Symposium on Rules and the Web (RuleML) is an international conference on research, applications, languages and standards for rule technologies. RuleML is the leading conference to build bridges between academia and industry in the field of rules and its applications, especially as part of the semantic technology stack. It is devoted to rule-based programming and rule-based systems including production rules systems, logic programming rule engines, and business rules engines/business rules management systems; Semantic Web rule languages and rule standards (e.g., RuleML, SWRL, RIF, PRR, SBVR); Legal RuleML; rule-based event processing languages (EPLs) and technologies; and research on inference rules, transformation rules, decision rules, production rules, and ECA rules.
The 7th International Symposium on Rules and the Web (RuleML 2013) will be held on July 11-13, 2013 just prior to the AAAI conference in Seattle Metropolitan Area, Washington. Selected papers will be published in book form in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
RuleML-2013 will stimulate the cooperation and interoperability between research and business in a community of researchers and practitioners who are interested in the theory and applications of rules. The symposium's areas of research and development have helped to drive the rapid progress in technologies for practical rule and event processing. As a result, RuleML-2013 promises to be an exciting venue to exchange new ideas and experiences on issues related to engineering, management, integration, interoperability of rule systems, and interchange of rules in distributed enterprise, intranets, and open distributed environments. Industry practitioners, rule-system providers, users of rules, technical experts and developers, and researchers who are exploring foundational issues, developing systems and applications, or using rule-based systems are invited to share ideas, results, and experiences.
The RuleML2013 Conference is also hosting
- The Doctoral Consortium and poster session: http://2013.rulem...
- The 7th Int. Rule Challenge: Further information and a separate call for papers for papers and demos for the challenge will be forthcoming.
- The 3rd Doctoral Consortium on Rules: Further information and a separate call for papers for papers and demos for the challenge will be forthcoming
