Distinguished Student Paper Award

As in recent years, the program committee may choose to award a ‘Distinguished Student Paper Award’ to the authors of a student paper, i.e., a paper that was authored solely or primarily by researchers who have not received a doctoral degree yet.

This year’s Distinguished Student Paper Award was given to Leif Sabellek for the paper “Ontology-Mediated Querying with EL: Trichotomy and Linear Datalog Rewritability” (co-authored with Carsten Lutz). Congratulations to Leif!
