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 Montpellier, France from

July 18th to July 21st, 2017.

Important Dates (Firm Deadlines)


Paper registration deadline:

April 28, 2017

Paper submission deadline:

May 8, 2017

Notification of acceptance:

June 12, 2017

Camera-ready copies:

July 3, 2017


July 18-21, 2017

Since we wanted the DL submission deadlines to be after the IJCAI notification

date, the schedule is tight and NO DEADLINE EXTENSIONS will be possible.

Invited Speakers


* Markus Krötzsch, Technical University of Dresden

* Andreas Pieris, University of Edinburgh

* Uli Sattler, University of Manchester

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, cloud computing, conceptual

modelling, web services, business processes

* 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,




* Submissions may be of two types:

(1) Papers accepted at some conference can be submitted as accepted elsewhere

together with a 1-page abstract that also specifies where the paper has

been accepted.

(2) Other submissions consist of 11 pages LNCS plus references. There is no

page limit on the list of references. If the paper should not appear in

the proceedings, an additional 1-page abstract has to be submitted.

* For submissions with an additional 1-page abstract, only the abstract

is published in the proceedings. The abstracts might not be indexed in

dblp. This option is designed 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.

* All submissions may optionally include a clearly marked appendix

(e.g., with additional proofs or evaluation data). The appendix will

be read at the discretion of the reviewers and not included in the

proceedings. The appendix does not need to be in LNCS format.

* Submission page: conferences/?conf=dl2017

* Accepted papers and 1-page abstracts will be made available electronically

in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series (

* Accepted submissions, be they full papers or 1-page 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.
