KRR group wins RuleML 2016 challenge with joint first place

From Wednesday, July 6 to Saturday, July 9, 2016 the 10th International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) 2016 took place at the New Computer Science Department, Stony Brook University, New York, USA.

The paper submitted by the KRR group ended in a joint first place. The paper is called: Combining DMN and the Knowledge Base Paradigm for Flexible Decision Enactment by Ingmar Dasseville, Laurent Janssens, Gerda Janssens, Jan Vanthienen and Marc Denecker. The presentation of the paper can be found here:

The annual International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) is an international conference on research, applications, languages and standards for rule technologies. RuleML is the leading conference to build bridges between academia and industry in the field of rules and its applications, especially as part of the semantic technology stack. It is devoted to rule-based programming and rule-based systems including production rules systems, logic programming rule engines, constraint handling rules and business rules engines/business rules management systems; Semantic Web rule languages and rule standards (e.g., RuleML, SWRL, RIF, PRR, SBVR, DMN, CL, Prolog); rule-based event processing languages (EPLs) and technologies; and research on inference rules, transformation rules, decision rules, production rules, and ECA rules. 

The RuleML 2016 Challenge is one of the highlights at RuleML 2016 conference which seeks to provide a competition among innovative rule-oriented applications, aimed at both the research and industrial side.
