we have shown in
http://www.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/WBS/sla/paper/agarwal-smart.pdf how
fuzzy logic can be used for modeling user preferences and how simple
fuzzy IF-THEN rules interpretations can be handled with a DL with
concrete domains. The paper is rather thin, but may still contribute to
the collection of some starting ideas/works.
