Industry Track: Business Cases and Technologies for Rules in Industry: State of practice, Challenges and Opportunities
With the increased importance of big data for improving operational performance in all sectors of industry, the role of rule technologies has become ever more manifest (and even critical). Indeed, if Data assets have been recognized as the "new oil", then Rule technologies should be introduced for the most important processing steps in generating value from data. For example, event-condition rules enable the detection of an anomaly state in the process execution by processing huge streams of sensor data. However, not only the creation and execution of such rules, but also their maintenance and refinement require a systematic approach, provided usually through rule management methodologies and systems. On the other hand the industry is still not completely aware of the importance of such approaches for an efficient utilization of rules in the era of big data. Therefore, there is a need for industry to share, exploit, and learn about the use of rules and rule technologies for solving real life business problems. The proposed industry track aims to be a forum for all sectors of industry (and the corresponding public sectors) to address such needs.
Incentives for industry participation in this track include:
Why at RuleML?
The International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) has been a leading international conference on research, applications, languages and standards for rule technologies. During the past 8 years it has built bridges between academia and industry in the field of rules and its applications, especially as part of the semantic technology stack. See further details at http://2016.ruleml.org.
Subtracks and Topics (not limited to):
Industry Track Submissions
The track seeks two types of submissions in LNCS format:
The papers can be submitted at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ruleml2016 (please enter the track name, “Industry”, as the first line in the keywords section and one subtrack “Position Paper”, “Proposal”, “Progress Report”, “Full Report”).
Irrespective of the type, submissions must follow the following structure:
The submissions will be peer-reviewed. The accepted industry papers will be published in the RuleML CEUR proceedings.
Besides presenting their business case papers, authors of industry track papers, among others, will be invited to participate in a panel related to the use of rules and rule technologies in business cases.
