RuleML-2005

International Conference on

Rules and Rule Markup Languages for the Semantic Web

http://2005.ruleml.org <http://2005.ruleml.org/>  



Galway, Ireland
10-11 November 2005 

Call For Papers 

Rules are widely recognized to be a major part of the frontier of the
Semantic Web, and critical to the early adoption and applications of
knowledge-based techniques in e-business, especially enterprise
integration and B2B e-commerce.  This includes knowledge representation
(KR) theory and algorithms; markup languages based on such KR; engines,
translators, and other tools; relationships to standardization efforts;
and, not least, applications.  Interest and activity in the area of
Rules for the Semantic Web has grown rapidly over the last five years.
The RuleML-2005 Conference is aimed to be this year's premiere
scientific conference on the topic.  It continues in topic, leadership,
and collaboration with the previous series of three highly successful
annual international workshops (last year's was  RuleML-2004).
RuleML-2005 is colocated with the International Semantic Web Conference
(http://iswc2005.semanticweb.org/) which meets 6-10 November 2005.

This year's main conference theme is rule languages for reactive and
proactive rules, complex event processing, and event-driven rules, for
applications on the Semantic Web.

Topics of Interest

We encourage submissions on all topics related to rules and rule markup
languages for the Semantic Web.  In particular, the conference seeks
papers addressing the syntax and semantics of rule languages,
translations and interoperability between rule languages, associated
theory, execution engines and processing models, implemented systems,
use cases, and deployed applications. We are also interested in research
and applications integrating declarative business Web Services, business
processes, and rules.  Particularly encouraged this year as the
conference theme is: languages for reactive and proactive rules, complex
event processing, and event-driven rules.

Background:  Rules complement and extend ontologies on the Semantic Web.
Rules can be used in combination with ontologies, or as a means to
specify ontologies.  In particular, simple rules and axioms can be
applied via ontology languages, either in conjunction with or as an
alternative to description logics. Rules can also be applied over
ontologies, so as to draw inferences, express constraints, specify
policies, react to events/changes, discover new knowledge, transform
data, etc. Rule markup languages enrich web ontologies so as to extend
definitions of derived concepts, and supporting publishing rules on the
Web, exchange rules between different systems and tools, share
guidelines and policies, merge and maintain rulebases, and more.

Topics of interest include the following. 

·         Rule-based policies:  their specification, execution, and
management

·         Combining rules with ontologies

·         Reaction rules for the Semantic Web

·         Complex event processing

·         Rules for event correlation

·         Event-driven/action rule languages and models

·         Semantic Rule Management

·         Resolving conflicts in triggered action sets 

·         Extraction of rules from unstructured data sources

·         Languages, including standards (RuleML, SWRL, Jess, N3,
F-logic/FLORA-2, etc.) 

·         Execution models, rule engines, and environments 

·         Implemented tools and systems for active rules on the Semantic
Web 

·         Combining active rules and ontologies

·         Integrating active rules and description logics

·         Applying active rules for Semantic Web Services

·         Modeling of business rules and event-driven/active rules

·         Rule-based software agents and the Semantic Web 

·         E-contracting and automated negotiations with rule-based
declarative strategies 

·         Connecting event-driven and reactive rules to legacy knowledge
bases 

·         Integrating rule bases and distributed fact bases 

·         Rule base validation, verification and exception handling on
the Semantic Web

·         XSL transformations of event-driven and reactive rules 

Submission

We invite articles of no more than 15 pages length formatted in
Springer's LNCS style <http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html>
(www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) describing original completed
work, work in progress, or interesting problems or use cases. (Note that
this page limit includes title, abstract, and all figures, and
references.)  Submitted papers will be fully refereed based on the
originality and significance of the ideas presented as well as on
technical aspects.  Publication of the proceedings is again planned in
the Springer LNCS series.

Submissions should be made to http://witanweb.ca/ruleml2005/ BEFORE OR
BY 1 July 2005.  (Note: authors unable to submit PDF may instead submit
Postscript format.)   In the submission email, indicate the contact
author including full name and affiliation, email address, and telephone
number.  

Multiple Submission Policy:  Papers may be submitted to ISWC-2005 and
RuleML-2005, but cannot be presented at both conferences.  If your paper
has been submitted to ISWC-2005, you must indicate that fact at the top
of the first page.  Failure to do so may result in summary rejection of
your paper.
