CALL FOR PAPERS: Workshop on Description Logics, 13-16 July 2011, SPAIN

http://dl.kr.org/dl2011/

24th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2011), Barcelona, Spain

The DL workshop is the major annual event of the description logic research community. It is the forum at which those interested in description logics, both from academia and industry, meet to discuss ideas, share information and compare experiences.

==IMPORTANT DATES==

Paper submission deadline: May 1, 2011
Notification of acceptance: June 5, 2011 Camera ready papers due: June 19, 2011
Workshop: July 13-16, 2011

==WORKSHOP SCOPE==

We invite contributions on all aspects of description logics,such
as:
* foundations of description logics, including expressive power,
    decidability and complexity of reasoning, novel inference problems,
    and reasoning techniques for solving these problems;
* extensions of description logics, including, but not limited to,
    closed-world and nonmonotonic reasoning, defaults, epistemic
    reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge, and
    query languages;
* integration of description logics with other formalisms, such as
    object-oriented representation languages, database query languages,
    constraint-based programming, logic programming, and rule-based
    systems;
* use of description logics in applications or areas such as ontology
    engineering, ontology languages, databases, semi-structured data,
    document management, natural language, learning, planning, semantic
    web, and grid computing;
* building systems based on description logics, with special emphasis
    on optimization and implementation techniques; and
* tools that exploit description logic reasoning, such as ontology
    editors, database schema design, query optimization, and data
    integration tools.

==SUBMISSION DETAILS==

We invite submissions of papers in Springer LNCS style, see http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html
to arrive no later than May 1, 2011.
