33rd International Workshop on Description Logics

September 12-14, 2020
Rhodes, Greece


Submissions may be of two types:

  • We invite regular papers of up to 11 pages (excluding references). If the authors prefer the paper to not appear in the proceedings, an additional 2-page abstract of the paper has to be submitted.
  • Authors can submit abstracts of up to 2 pages (excluding references) of papers accepted or under review at a conference. The abstract should specify where the paper has been accepted or is under review and the original paper should be submitted as an appendix. In case of acceptance, only the 2-page abstract will appear in the proceedings.

Both regular papers and abstracts must be formatted using the Springer LNCS style with the correct fonts. The list of references does not count towards the page limits.

DL 2020 allows (but does not require) submissions to be anonymous, i.e. the PC members and the reviewers will not see the identity of authors in the submission system (EasyChair). If you wish to conceal your identity, please don’t forget to omit it from the PDF file you are submitting.

The option to publish a 2-page abstract 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.

Accepted regular papers and 2-page abstracts will be made available electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series (http://www.CEUR-ws.org/). However, due to a change of policy at CEUR-WS.org, 2-page abstracts will not be indexed by dblp.org anymore.

Accepted submissions, be they regular papers or 2-page abstracts, 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.

In the period between abstract and paper submission (June 11-18), authors may request "fast-track" reviewing to receive an earlier notification for their paper (July 5). This option is only permitted for authors that require more than 30 days to obtain a visa to travel to Greece. To do so, authors should send an e-mail to dl2020@easychair.org, including the submission number of the paper and a statement explaining the circumstances that require fast-track reviewing, preferably with a link to an official statement about visa processing times.
