The International RuleML Symposium on Rule Interchange and Applications

The RuleML Initiative

The RuleML initiative is organized by representatives from academia, industry and government for 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 standardization efforts such as OMG PRR or W3C RIF. A general advantage of using declarative rules is that they are usually represented in a machine-readable and platform-independent manner, often using XML. This fits well into today's distributed, heterogeneous Web-based system environments. Rules represented in standardized Web formats can be discovered, interchanged and invoked at runtime within and across Web systems, and can be interpreted and executed on any platform.
