The benefits of e-commerce cannot be exploited fully by consumers
because of 
the lack of trust and confidence in online cross-border purchases. To
fair trading and transparency in commercial communications and
effective complaint mechanisms need to be established and involved in

professionals and industrial practitioners to discuss issues involved in

modeling ontology of cross-border business regulations, among other
focusing on complaint regulations. 
We seek original contributions on the following issues of interest, 
but not limited to: 
 - Engineering of regulatory ontologies: Representation, Context,
   layering, reusability, maintainability, extensibility, etc;
 - Regulatory metadata standards (legal/leg-XML, ADR/ODR-XML,...); 
 - Policies and complaint regulations in Policy RuleML; 
 - Ontologies of: complaints, complaint resolutions, complainants,
evidences, legal cases etc; 
 - Sensitivity on and harmonization of cross-border business regulations
   in general; 
 - Multilingual and terminology aspects of regulatory ontologies.
 - Experiences with projects and applications of regulatory ontologies; 

We invite papers of no more than 20 pages length (6000 words or less,
style format) describing original completed work, work in progress,
problems or use cases, or trends in this research area. Submitted papers
be fully refereed based on the originality and significance of the ideas

presented as well as on technical aspects. Accepted papers will be
by Springer-Verlag as a part of Proceedings of the 2003 International 
Conference on Ontologies, Databases and Applications of SEmantics
