Visual Rule Modeling
If a rental car is stored at a branch, is not assigned to a rental and is not scheduled for service, then the rental car is available at the branch. (Created with Strelka)

Rules are becoming increasingly important in business modeling and requirements engineering, and as a high level programming paradigm especially in the engineering of e-business applications and of Semantic Web applications. In each of these the fields different rule languages and tools are being used.

Rules are used in applications to model and manage some parts of the application business logic. They are best used in applications with a dynamic business logic i.e. applications where changes in the business logic are frequently and they need to be immediately reflected in the application behavior.

Applications in domains such as insurance (for example, insurance rating), financial services (loans, claims routing and management, fraud detection), government (tax calculations), telecom customer (care and billing), e-commerce (personalizing the user's experience, recommender systems, auctions), and so on benefit greatly from using rule engines.

During the last ten years the business rules community has a large growth. Today we have:

Since a business rule is the same rule no matter in which language it is formalized, it is also important to support the interchange of rules between different systems and tools. World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) initiated a rule interchange working group, RIF as well as the EU network of excellence REWERSE initiated R2ML.

This workshop seeks contributions that address theoretic foundations, practical techniques, empirical studies, experience, and lessons learned related, but not limited, to those listed in the topics of interests.
