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.
