RuleML 2011 Doctoral Consortium
-------------------------------

The RuleML 2011 doctoral consortium is a new initiative of the International
Symposium on Rules, RuleML, to attract and promote Ph.D. research in the
area of Rules and Markup Languages. The doctoral symposium offers to
students a close contact with leading experts on the field, as well as the
opportunity to present and discuss their ideas in a dynamic and friendly
setting. The accepted thesis descriptions will be presented to an interested
audience and subject to discussion with a panel of senior researchers, and
we expect submissions on any of this year's RuleML topics:

- Rules and Automated Reasoning
- Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning
- Rules, Agents and Norms
- Rule-Based Distributed/Multi-Agent Systems
- Rule-Based Policies, Reputation and Trust
- Rule-based Event Processing and Reaction Rules
- Fuzzy Rules and Uncertainty
- Rule Transformation and Extraction
- Vocabularies, Ontologies, and Business rules

Accepted submissions will be published in internal proceedings and later on
published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings volume of RuleML.

state of existing solutions.
• A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the
results achieved so far.
• A sketch of the applied research methodology.
• A description of the Ph.D. project's contribution to the problem solution.
• A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as
compared to existing approaches to the problem.
