Description & Coverage
Description:

Selecting an appropriate rules-based engine requires balancing many different, and often, not well-understood properties such as business rules representation methods, rule history and life cycle management, and interoperability with external data sources.

The Handbook of Research on Emerging Rule-Based Languages and Technologies: Open Solutions and Approaches provides a comprehensive collection of state-of-the-art advancements in rule languages, containing methodologies for building rule-based applications, rule interoperability and interchange, and rule-based applications. Developers of rule-based languages and technologies as well as users of these applications will find this Handbook of Research to be a significant resource within the field.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Code generation patterns
  • Development of ontology-driven applications
  • Development of rule systems
  • Geospatial ontologies
  • Graphical notations
  • Higher-level agent architectures
  • Languages and tools for rule modeling
  • Mining association rules
  • Modular rule-based programming
  • Rule-based applications for the Web
  • Semantic Web rule languages
  • Service-centric systems
Reviews & Statements

This handbook aims to provide a comprehensive state-of-the-art of rule languages, methodologies for modeling, designing, and implementing rules, rule interoperability/interchange, and rule-based applications. ...In addition, the book fills a gap in the literature by relating the rule applications to Model Driven Architecture and ontology development on the Semantic Web.

Editor/Author Biographies
Adrian Giurca, is currently investigating methods and applications for information systems of the next generation especially (agent based) reasoning on social media/software and reasoning on the Web and Semantic Web. Formerly, he worked on knowledge representation (particularly with uncertainty representation) and logic programming. Since 2005, he is a senior researcher at the Institute for Informatics of the Brandenburg University of Technology, Germany. From 1990 through 2004, he was with the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science from University of Craiova, Romania. During this time he was also consultant for a number of small size enterprises. He received its PhD in 2004 from the University of Bucharest, Romania. He has been or is involved in research projects founded by the European Commission (FP6). He has been member of the Network of Excellence REWERSE (http://rewerse.net 2004-2008) of the 6th Framework Program of the European Commission He is regularly serving as a reviewer for international conferences and journals, and he actively contributes to current research themes in web technologies.
Dragan Gasevic is a Canada Research Chair in Semantic Technologies and an assistant professor in the School of Computing and Information Systems at Athabasca University. He is also an adjunct professor in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University, Surrey. His research interests include semantic technologies, software language engineering, technology-enhanced learning, and service-oriented architectures. He is a recipient of Alberta Ingenuity’s 2008 New Faculty Award and has been a principle investigator of several large scale research projects in Canada and Europe. He has (co-)authored more than 200 research papers. He is the lead author of the book monograph entitled Model Driven Engineering and Ontology Development whose second edition is published by Springer in 2009. He has been serving on editorial boards of five international journals and has edited special issues in journals such as IET Software, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, and Elsevier’s Information Systems. Being organizer, chair, and member of program committees of many international conferences and workshops, he is currently serving on the steering committee of the International Conference on Software Language Engineering. Dragan’s home page is available at http://dgasevic.athabascau.ca/.
Kuldar Taveter (PhD in Engineering) is a Professor of Software Engineering in the Department of Informatics at Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. Before that he was employed by the University of Melbourne, Australia, and in 1997-2005 by the Technical Research Centre of Finland, which acts as a mediator between academy and industry. His main research interests are agent-oriented software engineering and agent-based business process automation and simulation. He has also conducted research on business rules and ontologies.
