               Special track on DESCRIPTION LOGICS

         Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR)


 Guest Editors: Giuseppe De Giacomo, Yevgeny Kazakov, Frank Wolter

 This year marks the 25th edition of the International Workshop on
 Description Logics (DL). To commemorate this anniversary, JAIR invites
 submissions to a special track on description logics.


 Submission is open from September 15, 2012 to November 15, 2012.


 We invite original 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,
  closed-world 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; and

 * building systems based on description logics, with special emphasis
  on optimization and implementation techniques;


 Submitted papers will be subject to the standard JAIR reviewing
 process (with reviewer selection and acceptance decisions made by the
 editors of the special track). Papers should be submitted via the
 normal JAIR web-based process and clearly identify that they are
 submitted to the special track on Description Logics in a note under
 “Special information for editors” on the submission form. For more
 information see JAIR's policy on special tracks


 Further instructions and publication requirements can be found at


 Accepted papers will be published over a period of time in different
 volumes of the journal. Once all the accepted papers are published, the special
 track will be generated.
