The DL workshop is the major annual event of the description logic

We invite contributions on all aspects of description logics,
such as

* 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.
