Abstract in LaTeX format:
We prove the PSPACE-completeness of the subsumption problem for(cyclic) terminologies with respect to descriptive semantics in a simple Description Logic ${\cal FL}_0$, which allows for conjunctions and universal value restrictions only, thus solving the problem which was open for more than ten years.
