We've been following the ongoing discussion about OWL Rules/SWRL. As a 
contribution to the discussion, we thought we would make our own work in 
this area available to others. This includes an OWL ontology to specify 
rules and a stylesheet to transform the rules into CLIPS format. Rules can 
be expressed as Horn clauses.

We found this rule ontology to be expressive enough to support a broad 
range of user preferences (including complex privacy/confidentiality 
preferences) in the context of our pervasive computing work (MyCampus 
The syntax also has the merit to be fairly concise.You can access the 
ontology and stylesheets at 
<http://mycampus.sadehlab.cs.cmu.edu/public_pages/ROWL/ROWL.html> along 
with some documentation.

Comments are welcome.
