                           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. The workshop will be
held at the Edifici Imagina (Avinguda Diagonal 177, Barcelona) from
July 13th to July 16th, 2011.


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 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,
  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.


The best paper among the ones written solely by students (i.e. persons
not holding a PhD) will be awarded a prize of 500 euros. Authors of
such papers are requested to indicate their eligibility upon
submission at easychair.
