SCOPE

We invite contributions on all 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,
       semistructured data, ontology design, ontology languages, ontology
       engineering, semantic web, and grid computing.
     * Building systems based on Description Logics, with special
       emphasis on optimization and implementation techniques.
