    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 representation languages, database query languages,
    constraint-based programming, logic programming, and rule-based

* Use of description logics in applications or areas such as ontology
    engineering, ontology languages, databases, semi-structured data,
    document management, natural language, learning, planning, 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.
