As this is a relatively new event, being only its 2nd year, participants can make a difference about shaping the future direction and structure of the field, including about rule standards supporting their own approaches and about their own possible involvement in the organization of future events. Co-located with the 11th International Business Rules Forum, RuleML-2008 provides a unique opportunity to exchange your ideas about practical distributed rule technologies and rule-based applications. Meet the Web rules experts and discuss with them status and progress of the rules technology. Discuss your recent work with colleagues in the informal atmosphere of the symposium. You should not miss the high-quality technical presentations, the innovative applications presented in detail and the state of the art reports of the plenary speakers. RuleML-2008 is a must for all people active in rules technologies or entering the field. The scope of RuleML-2008 covers all topics relevant to rule-based technologies, rule interchange formats and rule-based applications as well as discussions of lessons learned that have to be taken into account when employing rule-based technologies in distributed, (partially) open, heterogeneous environments. ======================= Technical Program ======================= The symposium will feature a strong, single-track technical program consisting of: * Keynote speakers: o Michael Kifer (State University of New York at Stony Brook), on "Rule Interchange Format: Not Just Syntax". Joint keynote between RuleML-2008 and RR2008. o David Luckham (Stanford University, USA) on "The Power of Events: An Introduction to Complex Event Processing in Distributed Enterprise Systems". o Paul Haley (Haley Systems, Inc) on "Event and Process Semantics will Rule". o Benjamin Grosof (Vulcan, Inc.) on the SILK KRR system of the HALO project. * Joint Lunch Panel held in conjunction with the co-located Business Rules Forum on "Rules on the Web". * Lightning talks/Highlight talks * A RuleML-2008 Challenge with prizes to demonstrate tools, use cases, and applications. * Industry, demo and scientific research & development papers and presentations advancing and assessing the state of the art in event and rule-based systems selected in a peer-reviewed fashion by an international program committee. * Papers will be published as a Springer LNCS proceedings. A special issue (IEEE TKDE pending) will be forthcoming. * Social events to promote networking among the symposium delegates in an informal setting.
