Abstract

The Rule Responder SymposiumPlanner system supports topic-oriented collaboration between the distributed members of a virtual organization. Each member (or small team of members) is assisted by a semi-autonomous rule-based personal agent, which uses Semantic Web rules to capture aspects of the member’s (or team’s) derivation and reaction logic. SymposiumPlanner is a series of Rule Responder use cases for supporting the RuleML Symposia (2007-2011) by coordinating personal agents that assist the symposium chairs, intelligently answering questions from people interested in the symposium. In this paper, we introduce principles of SymposiumPlanner and make suggestions about its future development, mainly for RuleML-2012, and about further Rule Responder use cases.
