at the 10th International Web Rule Symposium,
(RuleML-2016)http://2016.ruleml.org
Stony Brook, NY, July 6-9, 2016.

Industry Track: Business Cases and Technologies for Rules in Industry:
State of practice, Challenges and Opportunities

With the increased importance of big data for improving operational
performance in all sectors of industry, the role of rule technologies
has become ever more manifest (and even critical). Indeed, if Data
assets have been recognized as the "new oil", then Rule technologies
should be introduced for the most important processing steps in
generating value from data. For example, event-condition rules enable
the detection of an anomaly state in the process execution by
processing huge streams of sensor data. However, not only the creation
and execution of such rules, but also their maintenance and refinement
require a systematic approach, provided usually through rule
management methodologies and systems. On the other hand the industry
is still not completely aware of the importance of such approaches for
an efficient utilization of rules in the era of big data. Therefore,
there is a need for industry to share, exploit, and learn about the
use of rules and rule technologies for solving real life business
problems. The proposed industry track aims to be a forum for all
sectors of industry (and the corresponding public sectors) to address
such needs.

Incentives for industry participation in this track include:

* Present own results / solutions for use of rule technologies in
business settings
* Learn about new trends in rule technologies, and how they can be
used to address business problems
* Exchange experiences about business cases and use of rules
* Compete for a RuleML award for best business case for use of rules
technologies

Why at RuleML?

The International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) has been a leading
international conference on research, applications, languages and
standards for rule technologies. During the past 8 years it has built
bridges between academia and industry in the field of rules and its
applications, especially as part of the semantic technology stack. See
further details at http://2016.ruleml.org/industry-track.

SubTracks and Topics (not limited to):
Position Papers
- Needs for Research & Development
- Proposals for Joint (Industry/Academe) Efforts

Progress Reports
- Progress in Research & Development from Industry
- Lessons Learned (Unsuccessful efforts that still provide insight)

Research Contributions
- Original Contributions in Rule-related fields

RuleML Industry track dates:
• 	Paper Submission: 	June 1, 2016
• 	Author Notification 	June 13, 2016
• 	Camera Ready 	June 19, 2016
• 	Conference: 	6-9 July, 2016

Industry Track Submissions

The track seeks two types of submissions in LNCS format:

    Extended abstracts of up to 2 pages
    Short papers of up to 8 pages

The papers can be submitted at:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ruleml2016  (please enter
the track name, “Industry”, as the first line in the keywords section
and one subtrack “Position Paper”, “Proposal”, “Progress Report”,
“Full Report”).

Submissions must follow the following structure:

Position Papers or Proposals (Business Case, Technological Challenges,
Rule-based Options)
Progress Reports (Business Case, Technological Challenges, Rule-based
Approach, Status)
Full Reports (Business Case, Technological Challenges, Rule-based
Solution, Results, Importance and Impact)

*    Business Case - explain the business case and the value proposition
*    Technological Challenges - explaining why the business case is
difficult to be solved by using traditional technologies
*    Rule-based Options/Approach/Solution - technical details, esp.
the usage of rules
*    Status/Results - the status/benefits of the approach/solution
*    Importance and impact - describe the importance of the solution
for business/technology

The submissions will be peer-reviewed. The accepted industry papers
will be published in the RuleML CEUR proceedings.

Besides presenting their business case papers, authors of industry
track papers, among others, will be invited to participate in a panel
related to the use of rules and rule technologies in business cases.
