JESS: Call for Demos: RuleML2011@BRF - 5th International Rule Challenge

Wolfgang Laun-2

Dear Jess users,

apologies if you receive this more than once, but I think that Jess users are in a particularly well equipped position for participating in this rule challenge, and that's why I gladly take the opportunity to post this call for on this list.

======================================*

* RuleML2011@BRF - 5th International Rule Challenge                 *  

* Nov 4th                                                           *

* Westin Diplomat, Ft Lauderdale, Florida                           *

* http://2011.ruleml.org/america/?page_id=126                       *

====================================================================*

* Call for Demos - Submission Deadline - Sept. 2nd, 2011            *

* New categories in the Challenge with prestigious prizes           *

* Demo papers published as CEUR proceedings                         *

* 15% RuleML2011@BRF Partner discounts - see registration page      *

* http://2011.ruleml.org/america/                                   *

* http://www.businessrulesforum.com/register.php                    *

*********************************************************************

 

Overview and Aim

======================================================

 

The RuleML2011@BRF Challenge is one of the highlights at RuleML2011@BRF

Conference.The RuleML2011@BRF Challenge is dedicated to practical experiences with rule-oriented applications. In particular, submissions of benchmarks / evaluations, demos, case studies / use cases, experience reports, best practice solutions (e.g. design patterns, reference architectures, models), rule-based implementations / tools / applications, demonstrations of engineering methods, implementations of rule standards (e.g. RuleML, RIF SBVR, PRR, rule-based Event Processing languages, BPMN+rules, BPEL+rules,...), rules + industrial standards (e.g. XBRL, MISMO, Accord, ...), and industrial problem statements are particularly encouraged.

 

 

Key themes of the RuleML2011@BRF Challenge include the following:

* Demos related to the RuleML2011@BRF Track Topics

* Extensions and implementations of rule standards: W3C RIF, RuleML, SBVR,...

* Editing environments and IDEs for Web rules

* Benchmarks and comparison results for rule engines

* Distributed rule bases and rule services

* Reports on industrial experience about rule systems

 

A dedicated track of RuleML2011@BRF Challenge will be focused on the theme:

 

**Combining Rules, Objects, and Ontologies: Implementations and Applications**

- Loose/tight integrations of rules and knowledge bases

- Knowledge Modelling and Reasoning

- Real cases and practical experiences

 

Ideally, demos submitted to the Challenge track should tackle knowledge-rich domain problems. The proposed solution should address such problem using a combination of rule-based modelling and semantic knowledge-based modelling. Solutions ranging from loosely coupled hybrid systems (i.e. where different frameworks are put together), to unified homogeneous architectures (i.e. where a unified model / semantics, within a single framework, is proposed) will be of great interest for the special track.

Prizes will be awarded to the two best applications from the main focus them and for the all categories. All accepted demos will be presented in a special Challenge Session.

 

Submission

======================================================

 

The submission is composed of two parts:

- open-source or commercial demo

- demo papers describing research, implementation, and technical details of your submission.

Submissions to the Rules Challenge 2011 consist of a demo paper of 4-8 pages describing the demo show case, and a link to the demo/show case, e.g.  project site, an online demonstration, a presentation about the demonstration or a download site for the demonstration.

Demo and papers submission website:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ruleml2011challenge

 

Please upload all demo papers submissions as PDF files in LNCS format

(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).

To ensure high quality, submitted papers will be carefully peer-reviewe according to the evaluation criteria indicated below.

 

To better disseminate your work, please also udpate your demo in the systems submission website with a brief abstract presentation:

http://2011.ruleml.org/america/?page_id=184

 

Challenge Evaluation Criteria

======================================================

 

Submissions to the RuleML2011@BRF Challenge general Track will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

- clear exposition of the objectives, outcomes, benefits for going beyond the state of the art in the application domain (25%)

- demos should demonstrate a good level of effectiveness to manage complex rules according to statistical/analytical/benchmarking evaluations (25%)

- demos have to demonstrate the results with a concrete example balancing conciseness and completeness (25%)

- demos should preferably (but not necessarily) be embedded into a web-based or distributed environment (15%)

- demos should pay attention to end-user interactions, providing an adequate and usable interface that favors a concrete usage of the application (10%).

 

Submissions focused on this year's special theme (Knowledge-Based Applications combining Rules and Ontologies) should show the potential and benefits of combining rule-based reasoning and taxonomic/frame/description-logic reasoning in a realistic application. Demos submitted to the Special Theme will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

- papers should clearly expose the objectives, outcomes, benefits for going beyond the state of the art in the application domain (20%)

- demos should demonstrate a good level of integration or interaction between rules and ontologies (40%)

- demos should demonstrate their results with a simple but meaningful case study, balancing conciseness and completeness (20%)

- demos should preferably be deployed in a web-based or distributed environment where multiple nodes exchange information (10%)

- demos should pay attention to end-user interactions, providing an adequate and usable interface that favors a concrete usage of the application (10%).

 

Proceedings

======================================================

Authors are invited to submit original contributions of practical relevance and technical rigor in the field, benchmarks, evaluations, experience report and show/use case demonstrations of effective, practical, deployable rule-based technologies or applications in web-distributed environments.

Papers must be in English.

Accepted papers will be published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

 

Exhibition Room

======================================================

 

The RuleML2011@BRF Chairs are currently evaluating the possibility to have an exhibition space where to present the demo live to the participants throughout the Symposium.

More information will be released with the notification of acceptance of the demo papers and demo systems.

 

Important Dates

======================================================

Submission deadline for demo papers and demo systems: Sept. 2nd, 2011

Notification of accepted demo papers and demo systems: Sept. 23rd, 2011

Camera ready papers: Sept. 30th, 2011

 

 

RuleML2011@BRF Challenge Chairs

Marco Montali, KRDB, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy

Hi all, 

Could anyone tell me if the  random  function of  jess is  normal or uniform?  

Thank you for help

Jess just uses java.util.Random, which you can read about in the Javadoc:
