In Co-operation with:


We invite you to attend the International RuleML Symposium on Rule
Interchange and Applications (RuleML-2007) to be held during October
25-26, 2007 in Orlando, Florida. As this is a 'first-of-its-kind' event,
participants can make a difference about shaping the future direction
and structure of the field, including about rule standards supporting
their own approaches and about their own possible involvement in the
organization of future events.

Co-located with the 10th International Business Rules Forum, the
International Symposium on Rule Interchange and Applications
(RuleML-2007) is the first event devoted to work on practical
distributed rule technologies and rule-based applications. These need
language standards for rules operating in the context of, e.g., the
Semantic Web, Intelligent Multi-Agent Systems, Event-Driven
Architectures and Service-Oriented Computing Applications. After a
series of successful RuleML workshops and then conferences (e.g., this is a new kind of event where the Web Logic
community joins the established, practically oriented Forum of the
Business Rules community ( to help
cross-fertilizing between Web and Business Logic technology.

The goal of RuleML-2007 is to bring together rule system providers,
representatives of, and participants in, rule standardization efforts
(e.g., RuleML, RIF, PRR, CL, SBVR) and open source rules communities
(e.g., jBoss Rules, Jess, Prova, OO jDREW, Mandarax, XSB, XQuery),
practitioners and technical experts, developers, users, and researchers.
It is an excellent opportunity, for experienced rule researchers/
practitioners as well as newcomers, to learn more about this
innovation-driven technology market, characterized by strong growth and
commercial opportunities. They will be offered an exciting venue to
exchange new ideas, practical developments and experiences on issues
related to the engineering, management, integration, interoperation and
interchange of rules in open distributed environments such as the Web.

The scope of RuleML-2007 covers all topics relevant to rule-based
technologies, rule interchange formats and rule-based applications as
well as discussions of lessons learned that have to be taken into
account when employing rule-based technologies in distributed,
(partially) open, heterogeneous environments.
