Present CFP : 2010
With the renewed interest in rule-based computing for industrial applications (e.g., Business Rules) especially as it relates to the Semantic Web ( e.g., the W3C's Rule Interchange Format), it is timely to explore the practical benefits delivered by computing with rules and ontologies in the large. Thus, this year's theme will focus on rule-based programming in Industry and the Semantic Web. The emphasis will be on implemented systems that have been actually used in pragmatic situations where the advantages of rule-driven computation and inference have made all the difference, such advantages being:
In terms of the Semantic Web, we explicitly call for submissions that probe (in a pragmatic setting) how rule-based approaches complement ontology-based approaches, which share some of the characteristics of rule systems, such as declarativeness and formal semantics.
We are solliciting papers dealing with topics related to this year's theme discussing any or several of the itemized facets of the combinations of rules and ontologies, going beyond academic experiments and meant for large-scale or industrial applications. Papers should contain no more than 10 pages, including figures, and submitted through EasyChair using the standard EPTCS LaTeX style file.
