Germantown, September 8, 2008 - The International RuleML Symposium on Rule Interchange and Applications, (RuleML-2008) will be held in October 30/31, 2008 in the Buena Vista Palace in the Walt Disney World, in sunny Orlando, FL. This exciting event brings together the world's leading thinkers, innovators, developers, engineers, and senior practitioners within organizations responsible for information technology and systems in one place to learn about how to integrate rule-based technologies into their operations.

Recognized by many as the world's leading forum; users, practitioners, developers and researchers will gather to discuss the applicability and commercialization of Web rules technologies for enterprises and public organizations. The event also enables delegates to understand Web Rules Technologies and their potential and how to leverage these technologies in their organizations to gain competitive advantage and efficiencies.

The conference will be co-located with The Business Rules Forum and will feature a strong, single-track technical program including keynote speeches by known rule technology veterans:

  • Michael Kifer (State University of New York at Stony Brook, USA), on "Rule Interchange Format: Not Just Syntax"
  • David Luckham (Stanford University, USA) on "The Power of Events: An Introduction to Complex Event Processing in Distributed Enterprise Systems"
  • Paul Haley (Haley Systems, Inc) on "Event and Process Semantics will Rule"
  • Benjamin Grosof (Vulcan, Inc.) on the SILK KRR system of the HALO project

Additionally, a joint lunch panel, "Rules on the Web" discussion will be held in conjunction with the co-located Business Rules Forum.

Lively Lightning talks/Highlight talks are a popular venue to discuss next generation rules technologies.

See participants reveal new tools, use cases, and applications in the RuleML-2008 Challenge.

Come hear exciting and informative industry, demo and scientific research and 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.

And don't miss the opportunity for all to be involved in social events to promote networking among the symposium delegates in an informal setting.

Be sure to visit for a full symposium program.

About the RuleML initiative:
The RuleML initiative is organized by representatives from academia, industry and government for the promotion of the modern and future generations of rule technology, which provides enhanced usability, scalability, and performance. The goal of RuleML is to be a general and open intermediary between various "specialized" rule vendors, applications, industrial and research working groups and research working groups, and standardization efforts.
