The RuleML 2015 Challenge is one of the highlights at RuleML 2015 Conference which seeks to provide a competition among innovative rule-oriented applications, aimed at both the research and industrial side.


Key themes of the RuleML 2015 Challenge include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Demos related to the RuleML 2015 Track Topics
  • Rule-based Event Processing and Stream Reasoning
  • Authoring 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
  • Real cases and practical experiences

Rule Challenge Tracks

Rule modeling, rule authoring, rule engines and applications

This track welcomes applications and demos related to

• Innovative UX for rule modeling, rule editors, NLP powered rule authoring
• Cloud-based applications for rule storage and execution
• Translators between different rule languages, open source rule engines
• Semantic Web rule applications using social media data
• Rule-based applications for crowdsourcing
Rule-based Recommender Systems for the Web of Data
This challenge has two focus areas:

- rule learning algorithms applied on recommender problems
- using the linked open data cloud for feature set extension

The challenge uses a semantically enriched version of the MovieLens dataset. In addition to the standard metrics of recommender performance, the challenge aims to assess the compactness of explanation provided by the participating rule-based systems.

The task description is available on the Rule-based Recommender Systems Challenge sub-website: http:\\2015.ruleml.org\recsysrules-2015.html
