JOURNAL OF WEB SEMANTICS
Special Issue on
RULES FOR THE SEMANTIC WEB
The Semantic Web is a major world-wide endeavour to advance the Web by
enriching its content with semantic meta-information that can be
processed by inference-enabled Web applications. Ontologies and automated
reasoning are key techniques in the Semantic Web initiative.
Rules are considered to be a major issue in the further development of
the Semantic Web. On one hand, they can be used in ontology languages,
either in conjunction with, or as an alternative to, description logics.
On the other hand, they are acting as a means to draw inferences, to
express constraints, to specify policies, to react to events/changes,
to transform data, etc.
Finally, rule markup languages will allow to enrich web
ontologies by adding definitions of derived concepts, to publish rules
on the Web, to exchange rules between different systems and tools, etc.
This special issue of the journal (http://www.semanticwebjournal.org/)
is soliciting highest-quality submissions on all topics related to
rule systems and rule markup languages for the Semantic Web.
