It is planned to hold DL2023 as an in-person event, that is, at least
one author of every accepted paper has to physically attend the


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 36th edition
will be held in Rhodes, Greece, between September 2nd and 4th 2023. It
will be co-located with KR 23 & NMR 23, the 20th International
Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning and
the 21st International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning.


We invite contributions on all aspects of description logic,
including, but not limited to the following:

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, learnability

Extensions of description logics: closed-world and non-monotonic
reasoning, epistemic reasoning, temporal and spatial reasoning,
procedural knowledge, query answering, reasoning over dynamic

Integration of description logics with other formalisms:
database query languages, constraint-based programming, logic
programming, rule-based systems, knowledge graphs, hybrid reasoning

Applications of description logics: ontology engineering, ontology
languages, databases, ontology-based data access, semi-structured
data, graph-structured data, linked data, document management, natural
language, hybrid approaches combining logic and 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, ontology
learning and mining, other support for ontology development, database
schema design, query rewriting/answering/optimization, data
integration, implementation and optimization techniques, benchmarking,
evaluation, modeling


Support for students wishing to attend DL 2023 will be provided either
directly by DL organizers or in collaboration with KR 2023.  Details
will be announced in due time.


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, based on the DL-specific template available on:


and submitted via:


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.

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. The
proceedings will be made publicly available via

In justified cases, if you wish your submission to be handled
anonymously (i.e., double-blind), please send an e-mail to explaining the reasons. You will receive
instructions on how to proceed.
