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 Workshop on Formal Ontologies meet Industry (FOMI), 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, the 5th RuleML Doctoral Consortium, the RuleML tutorial day, and the 7th Workshop on Formal Ontologies meets Industry. 

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.
