		RuleML-2005

		International Conference on

		Rules and Rule Markup Languages for the Semantic Web

		Galway, Ireland
		10-12 November 2005  

		 

		Final Call For Papers  

		 

		Rules are widely recognized to be a major part of the
frontier of the Semantic Web, and critical to the early adoption and
applications of knowledge-based techniques in e-business, especially
enterprise integration and B2B e-commerce.  This includes knowledge
representation (KR) theory and algorithms; markup languages based on
such KR; engines, translators, and other tools; relationships to
standardization efforts; and, not least, applications.  Interest and
activity in the area of Rules for the Semantic Web has grown rapidly
over the last five years. The RuleML-2005 Conference is aimed to be this
year's premiere scientific conference on the topic.  It continues in
topic, leadership, and collaboration with the previous series of three
highly successful annual international workshops (last year's was
RuleML-2004).  RuleML-2005 is colocated with the International Semantic
Web Conference (http://iswc2005.semanticweb.org/
<http://iswc2005.semanticweb.org/> ) which meets 6-10 November 2005.  We
are pleased to announce that Tim Berners-Lee will be the keynote
speaker. 

		 

		This year's main conference theme is rule languages for
reactive and proactive rules, complex event processing, and event-driven
rules, for applications on the Semantic Web.  The conference will also
include an OWL Workshop, hosted by Peter Patel-Schneider. 

		 

		Topics of Interest

		We encourage submissions on all topics related to rules
and rule markup languages for the Semantic Web.  In particular, the
conference seeks papers addressing the syntax and semantics of rule
languages, translations and interoperability between rule languages,
associated theory, execution engines and processing models, implemented
systems, use cases, and deployed applications. We are also interested in
research and applications integrating declarative business Web Services,
business processes, and rules.  Particularly encouraged this year as the
conference theme is: languages for reactive and proactive rules, complex
event processing, and event-driven rules. 

		 

		Background:  Rules complement and extend ontologies on
the Semantic Web.  Rules can be used in combination with ontologies, or
as a means to specify ontologies.  In particular, simple rules and
axioms can be applied via ontology languages, either in conjunction with
or as an alternative to description logics. Rules can also be applied
over ontologies, so as to draw inferences, express constraints, specify
policies, react to events/changes, discover new knowledge, transform
data, etc. Rule markup languages enrich web ontologies so as to extend
definitions of derived concepts, and supporting publishing rules on the
Web, exchange rules between different systems and tools, share
guidelines and policies, merge and maintain rulebases, and more. 

		 

		Topics of interest include the following. 

		*	Rule-based policies:  their specification,
execution, and management 
		*	Combining rules with ontologies 
		*	Reaction rules for the Semantic Web 
		*	Complex event processing 
		*	Rules for event correlation 
		*	Event-driven/action rule languages and models 
		*	Semantic Rule Management 
		*	Resolving conflicts in triggered action sets 
		*	Extraction of rules from unstructured data
sources 
		*	Languages, including standards (RuleML, SWRL,
Jess, N3, F-logic/FLORA-2, etc.) 
		*	Execution models, rule engines, and environments

		*	Implemented tools and systems for active rules
on the Semantic Web 
		*	Combining active rules and ontologies 
		*	Integrating active rules and description logics 
		*	Applying active rules for Semantic Web Services 
		*	Modeling of business rules and
event-driven/active rules 
		*	Rule-based software agents and the Semantic Web 
		*	E-contracting and automated negotiations with
rule-based declarative strategies 
		*	Connecting event-driven and reactive rules to
legacy knowledge bases 
		*	Integrating rule bases and distributed fact
bases 
		*	Rule base validation, verification and exception
handling on the Semantic Web 
		*	XSL transformations of event-driven and reactive
rules 

		Submission

		We invite articles of no more than 15 pages length
formatted in Springer's LNCS style
<http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html>
(www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) describing original completed
work, work in progress, or interesting problems or use cases. (Note that
this page limit includes title, abstract, and all figures, and
references.)  Submitted papers will be fully refereed based on the
originality and significance of the ideas presented as well as on
technical aspects.  Publication of the proceedings is again planned in
the Springer LNCS series.

		Submissions should be made to
http://witanweb.ca/ruleml2005/ <http://witanweb.ca/ruleml2005/>  BEFORE
OR BY 11 July 2005.  (Note: authors unable to submit PDF may instead
submit Postscript format.)   In the submission email, indicate the
contact author including full name and affiliation, email address, and
telephone number.   

		 

		Multiple Submission Policy:  Papers may be submitted to
ISWC-2005 and RuleML-2005, but cannot be presented at both conferences.
If your paper has been submitted to ISWC-2005, you must indicate that
fact at the top of the first page.  Failure to do so may result in
summary rejection of your paper.

		*	11 July 2005 -- Deadline for paper submissions. 
		*	10 August 2005-- Notification of acceptance. 
		*	2 September 2005 -- Final version of paper
(camera-ready) due.
