31st International Workshop on Description Logics

26–29 October 2018
Tempe, Arizona, US

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 31st edition will be held in Tempe, Arizona, US from October 26th to October 29th, 2018.

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, modelling

Invited Speakers

Lidia Tendera (University of Opole, Poland)

Important Dates

Paper registration deadline: July 14, 2018
Paper submission deadline: July 21, 2018
Notification of acceptance: September 14, 2018
Camera-ready copies: October 4, 2018
Workshop: October 26–29, 2018

We have extended the submission deadlines beyond the KR notification date. The schedule is now tight; hence NO FURTHER DEADLINE EXTENSIONS will be possible.


Submissions may be of two types:

(1) Regular submissions consist of 11 pages LNCS plus references. If the authors prefer the paper to not appear in the proceedings, an additional 2-page abstract has to be submitted.

(2) Papers accepted at some conference can be submitted as accepted elsewhere together with a 2-page abstract that also specifies where the paper has been accepted.

* For both types, there is no page limit on the list of references.

* For submissions with an additional 2-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.

* Accepted papers and 2-page abstracts will be made available electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series (

* Accepted submissions, be they full papers or 2-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.
