GENERAL INFORMATION:
  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 34th edition will
  be held in Bratislava, Slovakia from September 19th to 22nd, 2021, with
  a possibility of virtual participation. It will be co-located with a
  number of events as part of Bratislava Knowledge September (BAKS 2021,

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,
      modularisation, ontology extraction, abductive and inductive
      reasoning
    * 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, 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, 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, modelling

INVITED SPEAKERS
  Claudia d’Amato, University of Bari, Italy
  Ernesto Jimenez-Ruiz, City University of London, UK
  Nicole Schweikardt, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany
  Luciano Serafini, Fondazione Bruno Kessler Research Institute,
      Trento, Italy (joint with DAO-XAI)

SUBMISSIONS
  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 above).

  Submissions may be of two types:

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

    B Abstracts of up to 2 pages (excluding references).

  Both regular papers and abstracts must be formatted using the Springer
  LNCS style with the correct fonts and submitted via:
  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dl2021

  Submissions of type A must contain enough substance that it can be
  cited in other publications and may not have appeared before.  A
  clearly marked appendix with additional proofs and evaluation data may
  be included.

  Submissions of type B may optionally include 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. In the latter case the abstract
  should specify where the paper has been accepted or is under review.

  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 LNCS 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 Slovakia and for this reason
  would like to receive notification earlier than 12 July may request
  fast-track reviewing. To do so, authors should send an e-mail to
  dl2021 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 should contact the local organisers by email
  homola at fmph.uniba.sk, who will have the most up-to-date information
  regarding the Slovakian and EU travel restrictions.

STUDENT GRANTS
  A limited number of student grants for participating in DL 2021 are
  available. The grants consist of a fixed amount that can be used to
  cover travel costs (in case of in-person participation only) and
  registration fees.  Grants will be given to motivated students who are
  genuinely interested in attending the workshop and lack sufficient
  funding. Preference will be given to students who have a paper (or
  abstract) accepted to DL 2021.

  Applications for student grants can be submitted using the
  following Google form: https://forms.gle/1HgzwpX6v2sQfVmJA

  Note that this requires a Google account. If you do not want to use
  a Google account, you can contact us by e-mail (homola at fmph.uniba.sk).

    Application deadline: July 14, 2021
    Notification: July 28, 2021

COVID STATEMENT
  The organizing committee is closely monitoring the epidemic situation
  both globally and locally in Slovakia. We do hope that with the
  increasing rate of vaccination it is likely that we will be able to
  hold DL 2021 as an in-person meeting. We are committed to ensure
  inclusivity of the event, and will allow virtual participation for any
  participants who cannot travel. If the further development will require
  this, we are also prepared to switch DL2021 to a fully virtual event.
  We are aiming to announce the decision on the format around the
  time of the notification of acceptance.
