ONTORULE: From Business Knowledge to Ontology- and Rules-based Applications
The workshop will present results from the ONTORULE project that show the benefits of integrating semantic technologies along the whole production chain, from knowledge acquisition to knowledge management to business application. The goal of this workshop is not only to present the project vision and to show case its results: the intent is to give the community of business users and IT practitioners a first hand understanding and experience of the technology used by the ONTORULE Project, by means of applied and hands-on exercises.

Workshop structure and agenda
UPDATE (December 2011): the slides used at the workshop have been published.
The workshop is planned to last 3,5 hours and it starts with an introduction to the ONTORULE project, the problem it addresses, the driving vision, and an overview of the ONTORULE platform. ONTORULE relies heavily on open standards knowledge modelling and knowledge interchange. The workshop includes a short introduction to some of them, namely: OMG semantics of business vocabulary and business rules (SBVR), W3C Web ontology language (OWL), W3C rule interchange format (RIF) and the work in progress on OMG Decision Model and Notation (DMN).
The workshop is colocated with CASCON 2011, the 21st Annual International Conference hosted by the Centre for Advanced Studies Research, IBM Canada Software Laboratory. It will take place from on November 7th 2011 at 8:30 AM at the Hilton Suites Toronto/ Markham Conference Center & Spa located at 8500 Warden.
