During the recent decade, handling uncertainty has started to play an
important role in ontology languages, especially in application areas
like the Semantic Web, biomedicine, and artificial intelligence. For
this reason, there is currently a strong research interest in
description logics (DLs) that allow for dealing with uncertainty. The
subject of the workshop is how to deal with uncertainty and
imprecision in Description Logics (DLs).  This encompasses approaches
that enable probabilistic or fuzzy reasoning in DLs, but the workshop
is also open for approaches based on other uncertainty formalisms. The
workshop focusses on the investigation of reasoning problems and
approaches for solving them, including especially tractable ones. For
classical DL reasoning problems such as subsumption and
satisfiability, algorithms that can handle uncertainty exist, but they
are still less well-investigated than in the case of standard DLs
without uncertainty. For novel reasoning services, such as query
answering, computation of generalizations, modules, or explanations,
it is not yet clear how to realize them in DLs that can express

                  Workshop:  July 20, 2010


The workshop welcomes submissions in pdf format in Springer's LNCS
style. Submissions can be
- technical papers not exceeding 10 pages,
- system descriptions not exceeding 6 pages, or
- position papers on work in progress not exceeding 3 pages
in LNCS. Submissions are via EasyChair at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=unidl10 . The workshop
prceedings will be published as CEUR proceedings.

We adopt the same double submission policy as the DL workshop,
that is, we also welcome submissions of papers that have recently
been published at other conferences and workshops (e.g., KR,
