SCOPE

We invite contributions on all aspects of description logics.
Possible subjects include:

* 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 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.

* Tools that exploit description Logic reasoning, such as ontology
   editors, database schema design, query optimization, and data
   integration tools.
