Deadline extension: May 10 - Business Cases and Technologies for Rules in Industry @ RuleML2015, Berlin, Germany, August 2-5, 2015

**** Please forward to interested colleagues ****

Dear Colleagues, 

We have received several deadline extension requests from the rules
community for the RuleML 2015 Industry track

We have decided to extend the paper submission deadline by ten days to 10th
of May 2015. 

So there is some more time to finish your papers without undue haste.

As you already might know, following trends in emerging technologies is
nowadays quite difficult (and time consuming). Given your interest related
to Rules we would like to inform you about an industry track that deals with
new trends in Rules, esp. in the context of Big data and IoT: "Business
Cases and Technologies for Rules" at RuleML2015 (see below more detailed
information about the track and possible arts of participation). 

We would like to invite you to consider a submission for this track and we
would appreciate if you could forward the below call for papers to
interested colleagues. 

With best regards on behalf of the track organizers, 

Nenad Stojanovic, Nissatech Innovation Centre, Serbia

Business Cases and Technologies for Rules in Industry: State of practice,
Challenges and Opportunities Industry Track @ RuleML 2015 

The 9th International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) August 2-5, 2015 Freie
Universitšt Berlin, Berlin, Germany 


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

- Learn about new trends in rule technologies, and how they can be used to
address business problems 

- Learn about new trends in other domains (like Big data, Internet of
Things) that influence the application of rule technologies in industry 

- Exchange experiences about business cases and use of rules 

- Compete for a RuleML award for best business case for use of rules

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 


The track seeks two types of submissions in LNCS format: 

- Extended abstracts of up to 2 pages 

- Short papers of up to 8 pages 

Irrespective of the type, the submissions must follow the following
structure / template: 

1. Business case - explain the business case and the value proposition 

2. Technological challenges - explaining why the business case challenge is
difficult to solve using traditional technologies 

3. Rule-based solution - technical details, esp. the usage of rules 

4. Results - the benefits of the solution, including improvement of KPIs 

5. Importance and impact - describe the importance of the solution for

Topic-wise any rules-related topics are welcome as long as they follow the
above structure. 

The submissions will be peer-reviewed. Selected best industry papers will be
published in the RuleML Springer LNCS Proceedings and all other accepted
industry papers will be published in the RuleML CEUR proceedings. The papers
must be submitted via RuleML submission system at and selecting the track
"RuleML 2015 - Industry Track". 

Besides presenting their business case papers, selected 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.
