DL 2015: the 28th International Workshop on Description Logics, DL 2015


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 in Athens from June 7th to June 10th, 2015.

Submission of papers under review for a conference with a double-blind
submission policy


Extended abstracts of papers that are currently under revision for a conference
with a double-blind submission policy (e.g., IJCAI) should be submitted
anonymously, i.e., without names in the pdf file, to avoid violations of the
double-blind submission policy.  The names of the authors of such papers will
not be revealed to the DL 2015 reviewers handling them.  All other papers
should list the author names in the pdf file, as usual for DL.

Extended deadline
Paper registration deadline: March 9, 2015 (extended from March 2, 2015)
Paper submission deadline: March 16, 2015 (extended from March 9, 2015)
Notification of acceptance: April 17, 2015
Camera-ready copies: May 8, 2015
Workshop: June 7-10, 2015

Workshop Scope
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 management,
 reasoning techniques, and modularity aspects
* Extensions of description logics: closed-world and nonmonotonic reasoning,
 epistemic reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge,
 query answering, reasoning over dynamic information
* 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, graph structured data, linked 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 optimisation, and data integration tools), implementation and
 optimisation techniques, benchmarking, evaluation, modelling

Invited Speakers
* Carsten Lutz (TU Bremen)
* Axel Polleres (TU Wien)
* Maarten de Rijke (University of Amsterdam)

* Submissions may be either full papers of up to 11 pages (excluding
 references) presenting original research or extended abstracts of at most
 3 pages (excluding references). There is no page limit on the list of
* All submissions must be formatted in the Springer LNCS style.
* Extended abstracts of papers under review for a conference with a
 double-blind submission policy should be submitted anonymously.
* Extended abstracts are designed only for authors who wish to announce results
 that have been published elsewhere, or which the authors intend to submit or
 have already submitted to a venue with an incompatible prior / concurrent
 publication policy. Papers presenting original research should be submitted
 as regular submissions.
* A clearly marked appendix (e.g., with additional proofs or evaluation data)
 may optionally be appended. It will be read at the discretion of the
 reviewers and not included in the proceedings. It does not need to be in
 LNCS format.
* Authors submitting extended abstracts are encouraged to include such an
 appendix, with sufficient material (e.g. copy of the already published paper
 or technical report) to judge the scientific merit of the work described in
 the extended abstract.
* Submission page: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dl2015
* Accepted papers and extended abstracts will be made available electronically
 in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series (http://www.CEUR-ws.org/).
* Accepted submissions, be they full papers or extended abstracts, will be
 selected for either oral or poster presentation at the workshop. Submissions
 will be judged solely based upon their content, and the type of submission
 will have no bearing on the decision between oral and poster presentation.
