  • Rule-based automation for asset trading


The challenge seeks high quality, original papers, potentially referencing online material, and ranging between 5-15 pages. Papers must be original contributions written in English and will be submitted at

To ensure high quality, submitted papers will be carefully peer-reviewed by 3 PC members based on clarity and significance of objectives and demonstration of results.

The paper shall address the following:

  • Explain the objectives, outcomes, benefits as you are going beyond the state of the art in technology, the application domain, etc.
  • Proof the results with a concrete example balancing conciseness and completeness
  • Preferably (but not necessarily) embed the tool in a web-based or distributed environment or a mobile environment
  • Present end-user interactions, providing an adequate and usable interface that favours a concrete usage of the application
  • Mention the availability of the software and data, data interchange, and possible tool extensions
  • If it is the case, provide a web-link to the project site, online demonstration, or download site

Please upload all submissions in LNCS format. Rule Challenge 2018 proceedings will be published as CEUR Proceedings and indexed by SCOPUS.


Registration information will soon become available at the main conference web site. Reduced registration fees will be offered to all student participants of the conference.
