The results presented in this paper contribute to the techniques for conceptual representation of data analysis algorithms as well as processes to specify data and behavior semantics in one paradigm. An investigation of a novel approach for applying a combination of semantically di erent platform independent rule-based languages (dialects) for interoperable conceptual specifi cations over various rule-based systems (RSs) relying on the rule-based program transformation technique recommended by the W3C Rule Interchange Format (RIF) is extended here. The approach is coupled also with the facilities for heterogeneous information resources mediation. This paper extends a previous research of the authors in the direction of workflow modeling for de nition of compositions of algorithmic modules in a process structure. A capability of the multi-dialect work ow support specifying the tasks in semantically diff erent languages mostly suited to the task orientation is presented. A practical workflow use case, the interoperating tasks of which are specifi ed in several rule-based languages (RIF-CASPD, RIF-BLD, RIF-PRD) is introduced. In addition, OWL 2 is used for the conceptual schema de nition, RIF-PRD is used also for the workflow orchestration. The use case implementation infrastructure includes a production rule-based system (IBM ILOG), a logic rule-based system (DLV) and a mediation system.
