RuleML Inc announces a US$1000 Award for the best RuleML Rulebase of 2014.

This year's rulebases are solicited in Deliberation RuleML 1.01 (overview). Submitted rulebases must contain at least 20 (Assert/Query) rules in RuleML 1.01/XML, and can be about any domain of knowledge (example). They may be translated from other languages (which must be mentioned in submissions) but need to be cleared for possible publication on the RuleML website in the source language as well as in RuleML 1.01/XML. Evaluation criteria for rulebase submissions in Deliberation RuleML 1.01:

  1. Generally, the criteria of the main RuleML 2014 Challenge apply
  2. Each rulebase must syntactically validate w.r.t. a Deliberation RuleML 1.01 schema for the most specific sublanguage (cf. MYNG 1.01) covering it (in Relax NG or XSD)
  3. The semantics of rulebases should be demonstrated through test queries or translation to the input format of a rule engine
  4. Their usefulness, efficiency, readability, and documentation should be shown in appropriate ways
