    Website: http://dl.kr.org/dl2022

    Contact: dl_workshop2022 at easychair.org


    * 23 Apr 2022 Paper registration & abstract

    * 30 Apr 2022 Paper submission

    * 14 May 2022 Fast-track notification (see below)

    * 8 Jun 2022 Notification

    * 20 Jun 2022 Early registration

    * 20 Jun 2022 Camera-ready version due

    * 7–10 Aug 2022 DL workshop

    Note: We have assured DL paper registration to be after the KR

    notification date, however the schedule is now tight and *no* deadline

    extension will be possible.


    The DL workshop is the major annual event of the description logic

    research community. It is the forum in which those interested in

    description logics, both from academia and industry, meet to discuss

    ideas, share information and compare experiences. The 35th edition will

    be held in Haifa, Israel, between August 7th and 10th 2022. It will be

    co-located with a number of events as part of FLoC 2022 (including KR

    & NMR 2022). For more information see:

    * FLoC 2022, Federated Logic Conference: https://floc2022.org/

    * KR 2022, 19th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge

      Representation and Reasoning: https://kr2022.cs.tu-dortmund.de/

    * NMR 2022, 20th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning:



    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,

      modularisation, ontology extraction, abductive and inductive


    Extensions of description logics:

      closed-world and non-monotonic 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, 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, explanations,

      planning, Semantic Web, cloud computing, conceptual modeling, web

      services, business processes, practical experiences, case studies,

      feasibility studies

    Systems and tools of all kinds around description logics:

      reasoners, ontology editors, ontology alignment, ontology extraction,

      other support for ontology development, database schema design, query

      rewriting/answering/optimization, data integration, implementation

      and optimization techniques, benchmarking, evaluation, modeling


    * Aarti Gupta, Princeton University, NJ, US (FLoC Plenary)

    * Ziyad Hanna, Jasper Design Automation, Israel (FLoC Keynote)

    * Pierre Marquis, CRIL-CNRS/Université d'Artois, Lens, France (Joint

      DL/NMR keynote)

    * Sebastian Rudolph, Technische Universität Dresden, Germany

    * Renate A. Schmidt, University of Manchester, UK


    DL reviewing is *single-blind*, so the names of the authors will be

    visible to the reviewers and should be indicated on the submitted

    files. We allow anonymous submissions on request (see below).

    Submissions may be of two types:

    A – Regular papers of up to 11 pages (excluding references)

    B – Extended abstracts of 2–4 pages (excluding references)

    Both regular papers and abstracts must be formatted using the *new*

    CEURART style, using the following DL-specific template that we


    * http://dl.kr.org/dl2022/papers/submissions/CEURART-DL.zip

    and submitted via:

    * https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dl_workshop2022

    Submissions of type A must contain enough substance that they can be

    cited in other publications and may not have appeared before. A clearly

    marked appendix with additional proofs and evaluation data may be


    For submissions of type B, we highly encourage a clearly marked

    appendix with additional proofs, evaluation data, or extended version

    of your paper, which was accepted at another conference or which you

    submitted or plan to submit to another conference. Abstracts of papers

    accepted or under review at other venues must clearly state the

    venue where the paper has been submitted alongside its status.

    The appendix will be read at the discretion of the reviewers and will

    not be included in the proceedings. The appendix does not need to be in

    the CEURART format.

    The proceedings will be submitted to CEUR-WS.org for online

    publication.  Due to a change of policy at CEUR-WS.org papers of type B

    are no longer indexed by dblp.org and the case of an abstract of a

    pre-published paper may require a permission by the copyright holder.

    Accepted submissions of both types will be selected for either oral or

    poster presentation at the workshop. Submissions will be judged solely

    based on their content, and the type of submission will have no bearing

    on the decision between oral and poster presentation.


    Authors who require a visa to travel to Israel and for this reason

    would like to receive notification earlier than 8 June may request

    fast-track reviewing. To do so, authors should send an email to

    dl_workshop2022 at easychair.org, including the submission number of the

    paper and a statement explaining the circumstances that require

    fast-track review. Authors and participants who require a visa

    invitation to attend the workshop please follow the guidelines provided

    at the FLoC website under https://www.floc2022.org/information.


    In justified cases, if you wish your submission to be handled

    anonymously (i.e., double-blind) please send an e-mail to

    dl_workshop2022 at easychair.org explaining the reasons. You will receive

    instructions on how to proceed.


    Support for students wishing to attend DL 2022 will be provided either

    directly by DL organizers or in collaboration with FLoC & KR 2022.

    Details will be announced in due time.


    FLoC 2022 and all affiliated events including DL are planned to be held

    in-person. However, due to travel restrictions imposed by various

    authorities if some delegates will not be allowed to enter Israel, they

    will be allowed to present virtually.

    If the goal to organize FLoC 2022 in-person cannot be met due to

    worsening pandemic situation, it will be switched to a fully virtual

    conference. The decision on in-person or virtual format will be made

    and published by 1 May 2022.
