                         Final Call for Papers

The 2006 International Workshop on Description Logics (DL'06)
continues the tradition of international workshops devoted to
discussing developments and applications of knowledge representation
formalisms based on Description Logics.



We invite submissions of technical papers of 8 pages.  Accepted
technical papers will be included in the workshop proceedings as
normal papers (8 pages), long papers (12 pages), or as posters.
The workshop proceedings will be distributed in paper form at the
workshop, and will be made available electronically in the CEUR
Workshop Proceedings series (http://CEUR-WS.org/).



Paper submission deadline:   March 10, 2006
Notification of acceptance:  April 17, 2006
Camera ready papers due:     May 12, 2006
DL'06 Workshop:              May 30-June 1, 2006



We invite contributions on all aspects of Description Logics.
Possible subjects include:

-- Foundations of Description Logics, including distinguishing
   features of Description Logics with respect to other formalisms,
   expressive power of Description Logics, decidability and complexity of
   reasoning, and novel inference problems and reasoning techniques for
   solving these problems.

-- Extensions of Description Logics, including, but not limited to,
   closed world reasoning, defaults, epistemic reasoning, temporal and
   spatial reasoning, procedural knowledge, and query languages.

-- Integration of Description Logics with other formalisms, such as
   object-oriented languages, constraint-based programming, logic
   programming, and rule-based systems.

-- Use of Description Logics in applications or areas such as natural
   language, planning, learning, databases, document management,
   semistructured data, ontology design, ontology languages, ontology
   engineering, semantic web, and grid computing.

-- Building systems based on Description Logics, with special emphasis
   on optimization and implementation techniques.

-- Tools that exploit Description Logic reasoning, such as ontology
   editors, database schema design, query optimization, and data
   integration tools.



Interested parties are invited to submit a technical paper not
exceeding 8 pages or a short position paper indicating interest in
Description Logics and the workshop.  Both kinds of submission should
be formatted according to the guidelines to be found at


and must arrive by March 10, 2006. Detailed submission instructions 
will be posted on DL'06 web site http://www.mindswap.org/2006/dl/
