The fundamental role of logic in the field of data management is well-known and beyond dispute. Classical logic, however, fails to deal appropriately with inconsistent data. In particular, everything, and thus nothing useful, can be logically deduced from inconsistency. To avoid, work around, resolve, or even take advantage of extant inconsistencies, many alternative approaches have been proposed or are being used. Such approaches are needed since, in spite of any preventive measures, inconsistency is unavoidable. In fact, most sizable databases tend to contain data that violate some integrity constraints, and increasingly many applications are dealing with logically conflicting data. The DALI workshop focuses on logic approaches and applications to data management that cope with inconsistency.


We are calling for papers presenting original research, innovative ideas, work in progress, industrial experience, case studies or position statements. Data, logics and inconsistency-related applications that are of interest include the following topics and related issues.

  • Ambiguous data
  • Imprecise Data
  • Incomplete Data
  • Messy Web Data
  • Null Values
  • Probabilistic Data
  • Rough Data
  • Uncertain Data
  • Vague Data

  • Abductive Logics
  • Adaptive Logics
  • Datalog
  • Description Logic
  • Direct Logic
  • Fuzzy Logic
  • Nonmonotonic Logics
  • Modal Logics
  • Paraconsistent Logics
  • Relational Logic
  • Quasi-Classical Logic

  • Argumentation
  • Belief Revision
  • Collaboration
  • Communication and Interaction
  • Counterfactual/Subjunctive Reasoning
  • Data Cleansing
  • Data Federation and Integration
  • Data Mining
  • Data Modeling
  • Data Quality
  • Default Reasoning
  • Distribution and Replication
  • Fault Tolerance
  • Forensic Data Analysis
  • Inconsistency Metrics
  • Information Retrieval
  • Integrity Maintenance
  • Natural Language Understanding
  • Planning
  • Remedying and Repairing
  • Requirement Engineering
  • Risk Management
  • Security
  • Streaming Data Analysis
  • Web Search


Please login here and submit an electronic copy (preferably .pdf) of your work. For dates and deadlines, click here. Submissions must be neither published nor under revision elsewhere, be written in English, contain an abstract of about 200 words and should not exceed five double column pages in IEEE format. In case of any problems, please contact the organizers.


All papers submitted to DALI 2011 will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers that are presented at the workshop will be published in an IEEE CSP proceedings volume of the DEXA 2011 workshops.
