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

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. The workshop
will be held at the Edifici Imagina (Avinguda Diagonal 177, Barcelona) from July 13th to July 16th, 2011.


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


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,
   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
* 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.


We invite submissions of papers in Springer LNCS style, see

to arrive no later than May 1, 2011. The length of submissions is limited to 11 pages, including
title and abstract (can be omitted if necessary), and list of references. Papers must be submitted
in PDF format via EasyChair; see

Accepted submissions
will be selected for either oral or poster presentation; however, no distinction will be made in 
the workshop proceedings: all accepted papers can be 11 pages long.


The best paper among the ones written solely by students (i.e. persons not holding a PhD) will be
awarded a prize of 500 euros. Authors of such papers are requested to indicate their eligibility 
upon submission at easychair.
