5th International Symposium on Linked Rules: Research-Based, Industry-Focused
Westin Diplomat, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, 3-5 November 2011

About RuleML 2011@BRF

In 2011, the RuleML-2011 Symposium will take place in two parts. The
first, RuleML2011@IJCAI, will be held in conjunction with IJCAI 2011
in Barcelona, Spain, in July.

The second, RuleML@BRF will be co-located with the 14th International
Business Rules Forum (, to be held
in early November in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA. It will include the
RuleML Challenge Award which, this year, is dedicated to Rules and


RuleML2011@BRF is a research-based, industry-focused symposium: its
main goal is to build a bridge between academia and industry in the
field of rules and semantic technology, and so to stimulate the
cooperation and interoperability between business and research, by
bringing together rule system providers,participants in rule
standardization efforts, open source communities, practitioners, and

The concept of the symposium has also advanced continuously in the
face of extremely rapid progress in practical rule and event
processing technologies. As a result, RuleML-2011 will feature hands-
on demonstrations and challenges alongside a wide range of thematic

It will thus be an exciting venue to exchange new ideas and share
experiences on all issues related to the engineering,
management,integration, interoperation, and interchange of rules in
distributed enterprise intranets and open environments alike.

As in previous years, the Symposium will be organized in tracks;
specifically, the RuleML2011@BRF focus will be on the following areas:

*** Rules, Semantic Technology, and Cross-Industry Standards
*** Rules and Automated Reasoning
*** Rule-Based Distributed/Multi-Agent Systems
*** Rule Transformation and Extraction
*** Vocabularies, Ontologies, and Business rules
*** NIEM and Rules
*** Cloud Computing and Rules
*** Fuzzy Rules and Uncertainty
*** Rules and Norms
*** Rule-Based Policies, Reputation and Trust
*** Rule-based Event Processing and Reaction Rules

*** General Topics: submissions on general rule topics are welcome, such as:
  - Progress in rule language specification (in XML Schema, Relax NG,etc.)
  - Implemented tools for rule bases (e.g. XML and RDF rule validators)
  - Rule interchange and reasoning
  - Execution models, rule engines, and development environments
  - Graphical processing, modeling and rendering of rules
  - Rules and NLP
  - Rule-based applications
  - Usability and effectiveness of rule-based systems and languages

Case studies, experience reports, and industrial problem statements
are particularly encouraged.

RuleML-2011 Challenge
The RuleML-2011 Challenge is one of the highlights of RuleML-2011.
Prizes will be awarded to the two best applications, one for the focus
theme and one for the other categories.

This year, the Challenge will be focused on the theme:

   *** Combining Rules, Objects, and Ontologies: Implementations and Applications ***

The call for demos is available on:

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit original contributions of practical
relevance and technical rigor in the field, experience reports and
show case/use case demonstrations of effective, practical, deployable
rule-based technologies or applications in distributed environments.
Papers must be in English and may be submitted at

Please upload all submissions as PDF files in LNCS format (

The selected papers will be published in book form in the Springer
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The selected demo
papers will be published in CEUR proceedings.
