About RuleML 2011@BRF
---------------------
In 2011, the RuleML Symposium will be held in two parts. The first will
be held in conjunction with IJCAI 2011 in Barcelona, Spain, in July.
The second will be co-located with the Business Rule Forum to be held in
early November in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA and will include the
RuleML Challenge Award which, this year, is dedicated to Rules and
Ontologies.


Objectives
----------
RuleML-2011@BRF is a research-based, industry-focused symposium: its
main goal is to build a bridge between academia and industry in the
field of rules and semantic technology, and so to stimulate the
cooperation and interoperability between business and research, by
bringing together rule system providers, participants in rule
standardization efforts, open source communities, practitioners, and
researchers. The concept of the symposium has also advanced continuously
in the face of extremely rapid progress in practical rule and event
processing technologies. As a result, RuleML-2011 will feature hands-on
demonstrations and challenges alongside a wide range of thematic tracks.
It will thus be an exciting venue to exchange new ideas and share
experiences on all issues related to the engineering, management,
integration, interoperation, and interchange of rules in distributed
enterprise intranets and open environments alike.


Topics
------
As in the previous years, the Symposium will be organized in tracks;
specifically, the RuleML-2011@BRF focus will be on the following areas:

*** Rules, Semantic Technology, and Cross-Industry Standards
*** Rules and Automated Reasoning
*** Rule-Based Distributed/Multi-Agent Systems
*** Rule Transformation and Extraction
*** Vocabularies, Ontologies, and Business rules
*** NIEM and Rules
*** Cloud Computing and Rules
*** Fuzzy Rules and Uncertainty
*** Rules and Norms
*** Rule-Based Policies, Reputation and Trust
*** Rule-based Event Processing and Reaction Rules
*** General Topics
Submissions on general rule topics are welcome, such as:
   - Progress in rule language specification (in XML Schema, Relax NG, etc.)
   - Implemented tools for rule bases (e.g. XML and RDF rule validators)
   - Rule interchange and reasoning
   - Execution models, rule engines, and development environments
   - Graphical processing, modeling and rendering of rules
   - Rules and NLP
   - Rule-based applications
   - Usability and effectiveness of rule-based systems and languages
Case studies, experience reports, and industrial problem statements are
particularly encouraged.

RuleML-2011 Challenge
---------------------
The RuleML-2011 Challenge is one of the highlights of RuleML-2011.
Prizes will be awarded to the two best applications, one for the focus
theme and one for the other categories.
This year, the Challenge will be focused on the theme:

*** Combining Rules, Objects, and Ontologies: Implementations and
Applications ***

The call for demos is available on: http://2011.ruleml.org/america/challenge

Submission Guidelines
---------------------
Authors are invited to submit original contributions of practical
relevance and technical rigor in the field, experience reports and show
case/use case demonstrations of effective, practical, deployable
rule-based technologies or applications in distributed environments.
Papers must be in English and may be submitted at
