                                CALL FOR PAPERS

            27th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2014)

                      Vienna, Austria, July 17--20, 2014

                           http://dl.kr.org/dl2014

===============================================================================


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 Technical University of Vienna, from
July 17th to July 20th, 2014.

This year the DL workshop is part of the Vienna Summer of Logic, a vast event 
hosting several major logic conferences and workshops (http://vsl2014.at/). 
In particular, the workshop is co-located with KR 2014 and will share a joint
session with the International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning (NMR 2014).

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 tolerance,
      reasoning techniques, and modularity aspects

    * Extensions of description logics:

      closed-world and nonmonotonic reasoning, defaults, epistemic
      reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge,
      query languages

    * 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, 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
      optimization, and data integration tools), implementation and
      optimization techniques, benchmarking, evaluation, modeling


INVITED SPEAKERS
----------------
* Michael Benedikt, University of Oxford, UK
* Patrick Blackburn, University of Roskilde, Denmark
* Alon Y. Halevy, Google, USA 


SUBMISSIONS
-----------
* Submissions may be either papers of up to 11 pages (excluding references)
  or extended abstracts of at most 3 pages (excluding references) and must be 
  formatted in Springer LNCS style. There is no page limit on the list of             
  references. 
* Extended abstracts are 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. 
* 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 abstract.
* Submission page: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dl2014
* 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.
