RuleML2014 - Call for Papers

January 5, 2014 at 3:01 PM
RuleML 2014, the 8th International Web Rule Symposium will be held on August 18-20, 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic, in conjunction with ECAI 2014, the 21st European Conference on Artificial Intelligence. Abstract submission: 31 March 2014; Paper submission: 8 April 2014

RuleML 2014 will host: the 8th International Rule Challenge, the 4th RuleML Doctoral Consortium, the Human Language Technology, the Learning (Business) Rules from Data, and the Legal Rules and Norms tracks, as well as the OASIS Legal RuleML Meeting.


#RuleML2014 will stimulate cooperation and interoperability between research and business in a community of researchers and practitioners who are interested in the theory and applications of rules. The symposium's areas of research and development have helped drive the rapid progress in technologies for practical rule and event processing. As a result, RuleML 2014 will be an exciting venue for the exchange of new ideas and experiences on issues related to engineering, management, integration, interoperability of rule systems, and interchange of rules 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.


We invite high-quality submissions related (but not limited) to the following topics:

  • Rules and automated reasoning
  • Rule-based policies, reputation, and trust
  • Rule-based event processing and reaction rules
  • Rules and the Web
  • Rule discovery from data
  • Learning (Business) Rules from Data (special track)
  • Fuzzy rules and uncertainty
  • Logic programming and nonmonotonic reasoning
  • Non-classical logics and the Web (e.g modal, especially deontic and epistemic, logics)
  • Hybrid methods for combining rules and statistical machine learning techniques (e.g., conditional random fields, Probabilistic Soft Logic)
  • Rule transformation, extraction, and learning
  • Vocabularies, ontologies, and business rules
  • Rule markup languages and rule interchange formats
  • Rule-based distributed/multi-agent systems
  • Rules, agents, and norms
  • Rule-based communication, dialogue, and argumentation models
  • Rule-based data integration
  • Vocabularies and ontologies for pragmatic primitives (e.g. speech acts and deontic primitives)
  • Pragmatic web reasoning and distributed rule inference / rule execution
  • Rules in online market research and online marketing
  • Applications of rule technologies in health care and life sciences
  • Legal rules and Norms (special track)
  • Industrial applications of rules
  • Rules and Human Language Technology (special track)
  • Rules and business process compliance checking
  • Standards activities related to rules
  • Rules and social media
