CfP: [New Deadlines] DL 2013 - 26th Int Workshop on Description Logics

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message.]

In response to multiple requests and in view of the upcoming holidays in 
many countries, we have decided to extend the submission deadlines for 
DL 2013 by one week: abstracts are now due Apr 12, papers Apr 19.

Moreover, please take note of the Distinguished Student Paper awards 
that provide an additional incentive for independent works by young 

All details are given below.


                                 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, 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

Abstract submission deadline:   April 12, 2013 (was April 5)
Paper submission deadline:      April 19, 2013 (was April 12)
Acceptance notification:          May 27, 2013
Camera ready copies:             June 09, 2013
Early registration:              June 24, 2013
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

As in previous years, the DL Workshop 2013 will again consider to
select one or more *Distinguished Student Papers* among the accepted
entries. This distinction is meant to encourage independent work by
young researchers in the field, for which DL Workshop is an ideal
platform. The award is therefore limited to papers that are authored
without the direct participation of senior researchers. The term
"student" is meant in a wide sense.

A paper is eligible as Distinguished Student Paper if *all* of its
authors are undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral students at the time
of the submission. This shall generally include anyone who has not yet
received a doctoral degree in a related field yet. The selection
committee might consider exceptions, e.g., if the work is based on a
doctoral thesis that has been completed very recently.

* Submissions are limited to 11 pages, excluding references, and
   should follow the Springer LNCS style guide (
* There is no page limit on the list of references.
* A clearly marked appendix with additional proofs or evaluation data
   can be appended; it will be read at the discretion of the reviewers.
* Please note the paragraph about Distinguished Student Papers above.
* Submission page:
* Accepted papers will be made available electronically in the
   CEUR Workshop Proceedings series (
* Accepted submissions will be selected for either oral or poster
   presentation, which will be clearly distinguished in the proceedings;
   however, the length of all accepted papers can be the same.
