RuleML 2014 - 8th International Web Rule Symposium
Prague, Czech Republic, August 18-20, 2014

The annual International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) is the leading international event in the field of rules and their applications. RuleML 2014, the eighth event in this series, will be held in conjunction with ECAI 2014, the 21st European Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Prague, Czech Republic. RuleML 2014 will host: the 8th International Rule Challenge, the 4th RuleML Doctoral Consortium, the Human Language Technology, the Learning (Business) Rules from Data, and the Legal Rules and Norms tracks, as well as the OASIS Legal RuleML Meeting.


RuleML 2014 will stimulate cooperation and interoperability between research and business in a community of researchers and practitioners who are interested in the theory and applications of rules. The symposium's areas of research and development have helped drive the rapid progress in technologies for practical rule and event processing. As a result, RuleML 2014 will be an exciting venue for the exchange of new ideas and experiences on issues related to engineering, management, integration, interoperability of rule systems, and interchange of rules in distributed enterprise, intranets, and open distributed environments. Industry practitioners, rule-system providers, users of rules, technical experts and developers, and researchers who are exploring foundational issues, developing systems and applications, or using rule-based systems are invited to share ideas, results, and experiences.
