Call for Chapters

Handbook of Research on Emerging Rule-Based Languages and Technologies
Open Solutions and Approaches

Check for more information.

Rule-based applications are applications implementing business rules with
the help of rule languages and executing these rules by means of rule
engines. This book intends to give the state-of-the-art of rule languages,
methodologies for building rule-based applications, rule
interoperability/interchange and rule applications. It offers comprehensive
information about rule languages by putting together basic and advanced
research on rules, methodologies for developing rule-based applications as
well as important use cases where rules play a central role.


To give the state-of-the-art of rule languages, methodologies for building
rule-based applications, rule interoperability/interchange and rule
applications i.e.

    * To offer a comprehensive information about rule languages
    * To put together basic and advanced research on rules as well as
rule-based applications
    * To be a source of methodologies for developing rule-based applications
    * To offer important use-cases where rules play a central role


While the intended audience for this book includes those with experience or
interest in (enterprise) rule languages and tools, as well as researchers
with expertise in other areas such as: Artificial Intelligence, Semantic
Web, Software Engineering, Object Oriented Design, Object Oriented
Programming, Unified Modeling Language, and Model-Driven Architecture.
This book aims to be a common space where researchers, in general, and young
researchers specifically, can learn the main knowledge about rule languages,
methodologies and standards concerning rule languages as well as innovative
rule-based applications.

Topics of Interests (but not limited to):

Rule Languages and Rule Engines
    * Artificial Intelligence Rule Languages
    * Rule Markup Languages and Semantic Web Rule Languages
    * Object Oriented Rule Languages
Standards, Methodologies and Tools
    * Developments in Rules Standards
    * Languages and Tools for Rule Modeling
    * Rules Verification and Validation
    * Rules Visualization and Publishing
    * Rules Patterns

Individuals interested in submitting chapters (8,000-10,000 words) on the
above-suggested topics or other related topics in their area of interest
should submit via registration system or e-mail a 1-2 page manuscript
proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of the proposed chapter
by February 15th, 2007. We strongly encourage other topics that have not
been listed in our suggested list, particularly if the topic is related to
the research area in which you have expertise. Upon acceptance of your
proposal March 1st, you will have to
