Call for Papers
1st Workshop on 
Aided Formalization of Business Rules and Policies 

co-located with EKAW 2010

11th - 15th October, Lisbon, Portugal

In the Business Rules community and for the management of policies, many 
tools and methodologies are developed in order to assist the business 
users (e.g. Domain Experts, Business Analysts) in rules and policies 
formalization. The goal of this workshop is to draw the attention of the 
EKAW scientific community to this emerging research problem of which the 
business world is already aware. We will focus on two kinds of tools and 
methodologies aim at helping users in the formalization task:
1.      Tools and methodologies for the acquisition of rules and models: 
some of these tools focus on (semi-)automatically identifying/extracting 
rules and models from textual policy documents but other sources of 
information can be exploited. In any case, it is of crucial importance to 
explicit the way acquisition is performed and to relate that methodology 
to the type of source that is exploited. It is also important to evaluate 
the proposed methodology.
2.      Easy to use rules editors, that allow business users to edit and 
possibly update executable rules. Some of these tools rely on (controlled) 
natural language, which is an interesting option to consider.
This workshop aim to bring together researchers from the Knowledge 
Engineering and Acquisition community and experts of Business Rules and
