4th International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning
29 June - 1 July 2020, Oslo, Norway
RuleML + RR 2020
14th International Rule Challenge
High-quality submissions presenting innovative rule-based tools, demos and applications, related to the RuleML+RR 2020 track topics.
Paper submission: May 1, 2020
Author notification: May 15, 2020
Camera-ready submission: June 1, 2020
Challenge: 29 June - 1 July 2020, Oslo, Norway
For each of these deadlines, a cut-off point of 23:59 AOE (anywhere on earth) applies.
The RuleML+RR Challenge is one of the highlights of the conference and seeks to provide competition among innovative rule-oriented applications, aimed at both the research and industrial side.
A prize (500 euro) will be awarded for the best Rule Challenge paper/demo. The assessment criteria include originality, creativity together with feasibility.
Submissions may present demos related to the RuleML+RR 2020 track topics, supply benchmarks and comparison results for rule engines, illustrate rule- and model-driven engineering, report on industrial experiences, present real cases and practical experiences, and realize mobile deployment of rule-based reasoning.
Key themes of the RuleML+RR 2020 Challenge include, but are not limited to the following:
- Rule standardization for research, industry and government
- Rule-based machine learning tools and techniques
- Rule-based approaches for intelligent systems
- Rule-based Event Processing and Stream Reasoning
- Business Rules Modelling
- Graph-Relational Data and Knowledge systems
- Higher-Order-Logic and Modal-Logic systems
- Rule and Ontology combinations
- Modular Rule systems
- Distributed Rule systems / multi-agent systems
- Ontology-Based Data Access (OBDA) systems
- Answer Set Programming (ASP) systems
- Constraint Logic Programming (CLP) systems
- Blockchain Rule systems
- Defeasible, Argumentation, and Legal systems
- (Controlled) Natural language interfaces
- Distributed rule bases and rule services
- Rules and model-driven engineering
- Reports on industrial experience about rule systems
- Combining rules with knowledge extraction and information retrieval
- Rules and social media
The challenge seeks high quality, original papers, potentially referencing online material, and ranging between 5-25 pages (in LNCS style). Submitted papers must be original contributions written in English.
Submissions: via EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rulemlrr2020
Remember to choose the "Challenge" track.
To ensure high quality, submissions will be carefully peer-reviewed by at least 3 PC members based on clarity and significance of objectives and demonstration of results.
Submissions should address the following, where possible:
- Explain the objectives, outcomes, benefits as you are going beyond the state of the art in technology, the application domain, etc.
- Demonstrate the results with a concrete example balancing conciseness and completeness.
- Preferably (but not necessarily) embed the tool in a web-based or distributed environment or a mobile environment.
- Present end-user interactions, providing an adequate and usable interface that favors a concrete usage of the application.
- Mention the availability of the software and data, data interchange, and possible tool extensions.
- Provide a web-link to the project site, online demonstration, or download site.
Please upload all submissions in LNCS format. International Rule Challenge 2020 proceedings will be published as CEUR Proceedings and indexed by SCOPUS.
