DL 2016: the 29th International Workshop on Description Logics, DL 2016
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 Cape Town, South Africa on April 22-25, 2015.

Paper registration deadline: January 17, 2016
Paper submission deadline: January 24, 2016
Notification of acceptance: March 4, 2016
Camera-ready copies: March 25, 2016
Workshop: April 22-25, 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, query processing techniques, knowledge based modeling
  techniques, knowledge base quality, including modularity, completeness, redundancy,
* Extensions of description logics: closed-world and non-monotonic reasoning,
  epistemic reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge,
  query answering, reasoning over dynamic knowledge bases, context-based reasoning
* Integration of description logics with other formalisms: object-oriented
  representation languages, database models, constraint-based
  programming, logic programming, functional programming, and rule-based systems
* Applications and use areas of description logics: ontology engineering,
  ontology languages, data management, 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
