The annual International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) is the leading
international event in the field of 
rules and their applications. RuleML 2015, the ninth event in this series,
will be held in Berlin, Germany, 
August 3-5 in conjunction with the Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE),
the Conference on Web Reasoning and 
Rule Systems (RR) and the Reasoning Web Summer School (RW). 

RuleML 2015 will host multiple tracks on Complex Event Processing,
Existential Rules and Datalog+/-, 
Industry, Legal Rules and Reasoning and Rule Learning, as well as hosting
the 9th International Rule 
Challenge and the 5th RuleML Doctoral Consortium. 

RuleML 2015 will bring together practitioners, interested in the theory and
applications of rules in 
academic research, industry, engineering, business and other diverse
application areas. It will provide a 
forum for stimulating co-operation and cross-fertilization between the many
different communities 
focused on the research and development of rule-based systems. 

The symposium's areas of research and development have helped drive rapid
progress in technologies for 
practical rule and event processing in distributed enterprise, intranets,
and open distributed environments. 
Industry practitioners, rule-system providers, users of rules, technical
experts and developers, and 
researchers who are exploring foundational issues, developing systems and
applications, or using rule-
based systems are invited to share ideas, results, and experiences. 

The conference will have 5 special tracks, as well as general sessions. The
tracks are: 
* Complex Event Processing 
* Existential Rules and Datalog+/ 
* Legal Rules and Reasoning 
* Rule Learning 
* Industry 

We invite high-quality submissions related (but not limited) to the special
tracks and within the general 
theme of the conference.
