Reaction RuleML - Standardize Semantic Reaction Rules
Adrian Paschke , Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany

Area: Rule Based Systems


RuleML is a family of XML languages whose modular system of schemas permits high-precision (Web) rule interchange. The family's top-level distinction is deliberation rules vs. reaction rules. In this talk I will address the Reaction RuleML subfamily of RuleML. Reaction RuleML is a standardized rule markup/serialization language and semantic interchange format for reaction rules and rule-based event processing. Reaction rules include distributed Complex Event Processing (CEP), Knowledge Representation (KR) calculi, as well as Event-Condition-Action (ECA) rules, Production (CA) rules, and Trigger (EA) rules. Reaction RuleML 1.0 incorporates this reactive spectrum of rules into RuleML employing a system of step-wise extensions of the Deliberation RuleML 1.0 foundation.

He is active in standardization as steering-committee chair of the RuleML Web Rule Standardization Initiative, co-chair of the Reaction RuleML technical group, founding member of the Event Processing Technology Society (EPTS) and chair of the EPTS Reference Architecture working group, secretary of the OASIS LegalRuleML TC, voting member of OMG and active in the OMG API4KB standardization, member of several W3C groups such as the W3C Rule Interchange Format working group, where he is editor of several W3C Semantic Web standards, and member of OASIS, where he is a contributor to the new LegalRuleML TC. He currently coordinates and leads several nationally and internationally funded research projects such as the BMBF InnoProfile project Corporate Semantic Web (CSW), the Transatlantic BPM Education Network (BPM EduNet), and the BMBF Unternehmen Region project Corporate Smart Content (CSC). He also is project leader of several successful open-source projects such as the Prova, Rule Responder, RBSLA, Reaction RuleML. Adrian was involved in multiple industrial and open-source software development and business engineering projects and has helped to spin-off two successful, awarded companies at Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, namely Chariteam UG and Klickfilm UG. He recently was general chair of the 6th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS 2012) and the 7th International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML 2013).
