Call for Papers
DL 2017: the 30th International Workshop on Description Logics

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 Montpellier, France from 
July 18th to July 21st, 2017.

Important Dates (Firm Deadlines)
Paper registration deadline:
   April 28, 2017
Paper submission deadline:
   May 8, 2017
Notification of acceptance:
   June 12,  2017
Camera-ready copies:  
   July 3, 2017
   July 18-21, 2017

Since we wanted the DL submission deadlines to be after the IJCAI notification 
date, the schedule is tight and NO DEADLINE EXTENSIONS will be possible. 

Invited Speakers
* Markus Krötzsch, Technical University of Dresden
* Andreas Pieris, University of Edinburgh
* Uli Sattler, University of Manchester

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

* Submissions may be of two types:
(1) Papers accepted at some conference can be submitted as accepted elsewhere 
  together with a 1-page abstract that also specifies where the paper has been 
(2) Other submissions consist of 11 pages LNCS plus references. There is no 
  page limit on the list of references. If the paper should not appear in the 
  proceedings, an additional 1-page abstract has to be submitted.

* For submissions with an additional 1-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. 
* Submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dl2017
* Accepted papers and 1-page abstracts will be made available electronically 
  in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series (http://www.CEUR-ws.org/).
* Accepted submissions, be they full papers or 1-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.

Distinguished Student Paper Award
As in recent years, the program committee may choose to award a Distinguished 
Student Paper Award to the authors of a student paper, i.e., a paper that was 
authored independently by researchers who have not received a doctoral degree 

Student Grants
A limited number of student grants will be available for participation in 
DL 2017. Each grant will cover the student registration fee and may 
additionally include a contribution towards travel costs. For details please 
check https://project.inria.fr/dl2017/students/

There are many tourists visiting Montpellier in July, so please make sure to 
book your accommodation well in advance to ensure the best choice of options. 
Even if you are not sure to attend the workshop, you may nonetheless want to 
book a room in a hotel offering free cancellation.

* Alessandro Artale, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (Programme co-Chair)
* Birte Glimm, University of Ulm (Programme co-Chair)
* Meghyn Bienvenu, University of Montpellier (Workshop co-Chair)
* Marie-Laure Mugnier, University of Montpellier (Workshop co-Chair)

* Information about submission, registration, travel information, etc., is 
  available on the DL 2017 homepage: http://dl.kr.org/dl2017/
