Folks,
 
I am cross-posting this Call for Participation for the W3C Workshop on Rule Languages for Interoperability to be held April 27-28 in Washington DC:  http://www.w3.org/2004/12/rules-ws/cfp

 
From what I was told they are looking for input from many different sectors, especially the life sciences. Since there are many examples of applying rules to bioinformatics problems, I think this may be of high interest to some of you. The target applications for this meeting are summarized:

		Summary: Rule languages and rule systems are widely used in applications ranging from database integration, service provisioning, and business process management to loan underwriting, privacy policies and Web services composition. General purpose rule languages remain relatively unstandardized, however, and rule systems from different suppliers are rarely interoperable. 

Much of this technology can be applied to topics in the Semantic Web, such as multi-source data aggregation, fact and condition testing, analytical workflow management, and bridge-ontology inter-linking. 

regards,

Eric
