2nd East European Workshop on Rule-Based Applications - RuleApps'2008
---------------------------------------------------------------------

July 21-22, 2008, Patras, Greece
http://oxygen.informatik.tu-cottbus.de/RuleApp2008/

http://www.ece.upatras.gr/ecai2008/

Paper submission:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ruleapp2008


Topics
---------------
Rules are becoming increasingly important in business modeling and requirements engineering, and as a high level programming paradigm especially in the engineering of e-business applications 
and of the Semantic Web applications. Rules are used in applications to model and manage specific parts of the application business logic. They are best used in applications with a dynamic 
business logic i.e. applications where changes in the business logic are frequently and they need to be immediately reflected in the application behavior. This workshop seeks contributions 
that address theoretic foundations, practical techniques, empirical studies, experience, and lessons learned related, but not limited, to the following topics: 
    - Artificial Intelligence Rules and Rule Systems
    - Web Rules and Semantic Web Rules
    - Best Practices in Business Rules
    - Rules Modeling (including Production Rules and ECA Rules)
    - Combining rules and ontologies
    - Languages for rule interchange
    - Rule base Visualization, Verbalization, Validation, Verification and Exception Handling.
    - Rule Engines Architectures
    - Rules in Web 2.0 Applications
    - Rule-based modeling of mechanisms, policies, strategies and contracts.
    - Rules and Web Services Integration
    - Implemented tools and systems

Important dates
---------------
Papers submission: April 10, 2008
Notification of acceptance: May 10, 2008

      CEUR-WS( http://ftp.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/Publications/CEUR-WS/ )
      The copyright for the individual items (subsuming any type of computer-represented files containing articles, software demos, videos, etc.) within a proceedings volume is owned by default by their respective authors. Copying of items, in particular papers, and proceedings volumes is permitted only for private and academic purposes. Copying or use for commercial purposes is forbidden unless an explicit permission is acquired from the copyright owners (i.e. authors).
    - Extended versions of the best technical papers of the workshop will be invited to
