2nd East European Workshop on Rule-Based Applications - RuleApps'2008

July 21-22, 2008, Patras, Greece

Workshop within the ECAI 2008 conference

Paper submission:

Rules are becoming increasingly important in business modeling and 
requirements engineering, and as a high level programming paradigm 
especially in the engineering of e-business applications
and of the Semantic Web applications. Rules are used in applications to 
model and manage specific parts of the application business logic. They 
are best used in applications with a dynamic
business logic i.e. applications where changes in the business logic are 
frequently and they need to be immediately reflected in the application 
behavior. This workshop seeks contributions
that address theoretic foundations, practical techniques, empirical 
studies, experience, and lessons learned related, but not limited, to 
the following topics:
    - Artificial Intelligence Rules and Rule Systems
    - Web Rules and Semantic Web Rules
    - Best Practices in Business Rules
    - Rules Modeling (including Production Rules and ECA Rules)
    - Combining rules and ontologies
    - Languages for rule interchange
    - Rule base Visualization, Verbalization, Validation, Verification 
and Exception Handling.
    - Rule Engines Architectures
    - Rules in Web 2.0 Applications
    - Rule-based modeling of mechanisms, policies, strategies and contracts.
    - Rules and Web Services Integration
    - Implemented tools and systems

Important dates
Papers submission: April 10, 2008
Notification of acceptance: May 10, 2008

organizers to include their paper in the workshop's proceedings.
    - Additionally the accepted papers will be published as
      CEUR-WS( )
      The copyright for the individual items (subsuming any type of 
computer-represented files containing articles, software demos, videos, 
etc.) within a proceedings volume is owned by default by their 
respective authors. Copying of items, in particular papers, and 
proceedings volumes is permitted only for private and academic purposes. 
Copying or use for commercial purposes is forbidden unless an explicit 
permission is acquired from the copyright owners (i.e. authors).
    - Extended versions of the best technical papers of the workshop 
will be invited to
