Dear Colleagues,


If you have an interest in rule applications, -technologies and -languages
in the Semantic Web I  would like to encourage you to submit to RuleML 2015


Also note the additional collocated events, e.g., Recommender Systems for
the Web of Data (http://2015.ruleml.org/recsysrules-2015.html), the Doctoral
Consortium (http://2015.ruleml.org/DoctoralConsortium.html), the 9th Rules
Challenge with competitive prizes for the best RuleML rule base, the
Reasoning Web Summer School and the FOMI workshop


We will also have a Berlin Semantic Web Meetup during RuleML on August 4th.
Details will follow soon on the Meetup website: 



Please help to distribute the below CfP to your students and colleagues


Thank you and hope to see you in Berlin, Germany in the summer,


Adrian Paschke

The annual International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) is the leading
international event in the field of 

rules and their applications. RuleML 2015, the ninth event in this series,
will be held in Berlin, Germany, 

August 3-5 in conjunction with the Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE),
the Workshop on Formal Ontologies meet Industry 


(FOMI), the Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR) and the
Reasoning Web Summer School (RW). 


RuleML 2015 will host multiple tracks on Complex Event Processing,
Existential Rules and Datalog+/-, 

Industry, Legal Rules and Reasoning and Rule Learning, as well as hosting
the 9th International Rule 

Challenge, the 5th RuleML Doctoral Consortium, the RuleML tutorial day, and
the 7th Workshop on Formal Ontologies meets 







RuleML 2015 will bring together practitioners, interested in the theory and
applications of rules in 

academic research, industry, engineering, business and other diverse
application areas. It will provide a 

forum for stimulating co-operation and cross-fertilization between the many
different communities 

focused on the research and development of rule-based systems. 


The symposium's areas of research and development have helped drive rapid
progress in technologies for 

practical rule and event processing in distributed enterprise, intranets,
and open distributed environments. 

Industry practitioners, rule-system providers, users of rules, technical
experts and developers, and 

researchers who are exploring foundational issues, developing systems and
applications, or using rule-

based systems are invited to share ideas, results, and experiences. 





The conference will have 5 special tracks, as well as general sessions. The
tracks are: 

* Complex Event Processing 

* Existential Rules and Datalog+/- 

* Legal Rules and Reasoning 

* Rule Learning 

* Industry 


We invite high-quality submissions related (but not limited) to the special
tracks and within the general 

theme of the conference.
