                           CALL FOR PAPERS

    24th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2011)

           Barcelona, Spain, July 13th to July 16th, 2011


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.


Paper submission deadline: May 1, 2011
Notification of acceptance: June 5, 2011
Camera ready papers due: June 19, 2011
Workshop: July 13-16, 2011


We invite contributions on all aspects of description logics,such
* 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 and nonmonotonic 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; and
* tools that exploit description logic reasoning, such as ontology
   editors, database schema design, query optimization, and data
   integration tools.


We invite submissions of papers in Springer LNCS style, see
to arrive no later than May 1, 2011.

The length of submissions is limited to 11 pages, including title
and abstract (can be omitted if necessary), and list of references.
Papers must be submitted in PDF format via EasyChair; see

The workshop proceedings will be made available electronically in
the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series; see

Accepted submissions will be selected for either oral or poster
presentation; however, no distinction will be made in the workshop
proceedings: all accepted papers can be 11 pages long.
