                                 CALL FOR PAPERS

             26th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2013)

                       Ulm, Germany, July 23--26, 2013

                          Co-located with ORE 2013
                   followed by RR 2013 and Reasoning Web 2013



The DL workshop is the major annual event of the description logic
research community. It is the forum at which those interested in
description logics, both from academia and industry, meet to discuss
ideas, share information and compare experiences.

The workshop will be held at the University of Ulm, Campus East, from
July 23rd to July 26th, 2013.

In this year, DL workshop will be collocated with the 2nd OWL Reasoner
Evaluation Workshop (ORE), which will take place on July 22nd in Ulm,
Germany. Furthermore, the International Conference on Web Reasoning
and Rule Systems (RR), will take place in Mannheim (1:40 min by train
from Ulm) directly subsequent to the DL workshop (July 27th - 29th),
and the 9th Reasoning Web Summer School (July 30th - Aug 2nd) also in

Workshop:	              July 23-26, 2013

We invite contributions on all aspects of description logics,
including but not limited to:

     * Foundations of description logics:

       decidability and complexity of reasoning, expressive power,
       novel inference problems, inconsistency tolerance,
       reasoning techniques, and modularity aspects

     * Extensions of description logics:

       closed-world and nonmonotonic reasoning, defaults, epistemic
       reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge,
       query languages

     * Integration of description logics with other formalisms:

       object-oriented representation languages, database query
       languages, constraint-based programming, logic programming, and
       rule-based systems

     * Applications and use areas of description logics:

       ontology engineering, ontology languages, databases,
       ontology-based data access, semi-structured data, document
       management, natural language, learning, planning, Semantic Web,
       and cloud computing

     * Systems and tools around description logics:

       reasoners, software tools for and using description logic
       reasoning (e.g. ontology editors, database schema design, query
       optimization, and data integration tools), implementation and
       optimization techniques, benchmarking, evaluation, modeling
