The International RuleML Symposium on Rule Interchange and Applications

Boxed Lunch Panel Session
"Rules on the Web"

Joint with BRF

Thursday, October 30th at 12.25 am - 1.45 pm
Location: Great Hall North Room (general BRF keynote room)

Moderator : John Hall; Director, Model Systems


2008 sees a major step forward for rules on the Web. The W3C Rule Interchange Format (RIF) Working Group will publish several public working drafts. The OMG has published its beta specification for Production Rules Representation, which is being aligned with W3C's RIF, and will publish the first revision of Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR) in October. RuleML has published drafts on Reaction Rules. People around the world are working on implementations of these specifications. In parallel, business rules are already playing an important role in Web Services. How will new standards and current practice align?

If you are interested in rules on the Web, pick up a boxed lunch and come to this joint BR Forum and RuleML panel session in the BRF keynote room (Great Hall North). Our panel will include specifiers and implementers. Our focus will be: when and how will we use rules on the Web?
