The RuleML+RR 2018 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.
Submissions may present demos related to the RuleML+RR 2018 track topics, supply
benchmarks and comparison results for rule engines, illustrate rule- and model-driven engineering,
report on industrial experience, present real cases and practical experiences,
and realize mobile deployment of rule-based reasoning.
The best paper/demonstration in the Challenge will receive an award of EUR 500!
Key themes of the RuleML 2018 Challenge include, but are not limited to the following:
- Rule-based Event Processing and Stream Reasoning
- Business Rules Modeling
- Graph-Relational Data and Knowledge systems
- Higher-Order-Logic and Modal-Logic systems
- Rule/Ontology combinations
- Modular Rule/Ontology systems
- Distributed Rule/Ontology 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
- Benchmarks and comparison results for rule engines
- Distributed rule bases and rule services
- Rules and model driven engineering
- Reports on industrial experience about rule systems
- Real cases and practical experiences
- Rules in online market research and online marketing

The challenge seeks high quality, original papers, potentially referencing online material, and ranging between 5-15 pages. Papers must be original contributions written in English and will be submitted at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rulemlrr2018 choosing the "Int'l Rule Challenge" track.
To ensure high quality, submitted papers will be carefully peer-reviewed by 3 PC members based on clarity and significance of objectives and demonstration of results.
Submissions should address the following, where applicable:
- 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
- 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 favours 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
Please upload all submissions in LNCS format. International Rule
Challenge 2018 proceedings will be published as CEUR Proceedings and
indexed by SCOPUS.
