Overview and Aim
The RuleML2011@BRF Challenge is one of the highlights at RuleML2011@BRF Conference. The RuleML2011@BRF Challenge is dedicated to practical experiences with rule-oriented applications. In particular, submissions of benchmarks/evaluations, demos, case studies/use cases, experience reports, best practice solutions (e.g. design patterns, reference architectures, models), rule-based implementations/tools/applications, demonstrations of engineering methods, implementations of rule standards (e.g. RuleML, RIF, SBVR, PRR, rule-based Event Processing languages, BPMN+rules, BPEL+rules, etc.), rules + industrial standards (e.g. XBRL, MISMO, Accord, etc.), and industrial problem statements are particularly encouraged.

A dedicated track of RuleML2011@BRF Challenge will be focused on the theme:
**Combining Rules, Objects, and Ontologies: Implementations and Applications**
- Loose/tight integrations of rules and knowledge bases
- Knowledge Modelling and Reasoning
- Real cases and practical experiences

Prizes will be awarded to the two best applications from the main focus theme and for the all categories. All accepted demos will be presented in a special Challenge Session.
