      2002 International Workshop on Description Logics (DL2002)
			   Call for Papers

			     April 19-21, 2002

	       homepage: http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/dl2002

The 2002 International Workshop on Description Logics (DL2002)
continues the tradition of international workshops devoted to
discussing developments and applications of knowledge representation
formalisms based on Description Logics.

DL2002 will be an associated workshop of the Eighth International
Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
(KR2002), which will be held in Toulouse, France, 22-25 April, 2002.



We invite submissions of technical papers of 8 pages and short
position papers (for people that want to participate in the workshop
without giving talks).  Authors of accepted technical and position
papers will be invited to participate in the workshop (participation
will be by invitation only). 

Accepted technical papers will be included in the workshop proceedings as
normal papers (8 pages) or long papers (12 pages).  The workshop 
proceedings will be distributed in paper form at the workshop, and will be
made available electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series.



Paper submission deadline:   January 10, 2002
Notification of acceptance:  February 10, 2002
Camera ready papers due:     March 10, 2002
Workshop:		     April 19-21, 2002



We invite contributions on all other aspects of Description
Logics. Possible subjects include

-- Foundations of Description Logics, including distinguishing
features of Description Logics with respect to other formalisms,
expressive power of Description Logics, decidability and complexity of
reasoning, and 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 languages, constraint-based programming, logic
programming, and rule-based systems.

-- Use of Description Logics in applications or areas such as natural
language, planning, learning, databases, document management systems,
semi-structured data, and ontology design, with special emphasis on
the pros and cons of choosing Description Logics.

-- Building systems based on Description Logics, with special emphasis
on optimization and implementation techniques.



Interested parties are invited to submit a technical paper not
exceeding 8 pages or a short position paper indicating interest in
Description Logics and the workshop.  Both kinds of submission should be
formatted according to the guidelines to be found at


Submissions should be sent by electronic mail as self-contained standard
postscript attachments to 


and must arrive by 10 January 2001.
