academia and industry, who are interested in description logics and
their applications.



Paper submission deadline:   15 February 2008

DL'07 Workshop:              13-16 May 2008 (3 or 4 days)



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

* 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.
