Intensional query answering aims at providing a response to a query addressed to a knowledge base by making use of the intensional knowledge as opposed to extensional. Such a response is an abstract description of the conventional answer that can be of interest in many situations, for example it may increase the cooperativeness of the system, or it may replace the conventional answer in case access to the extensional part of the knowledge base is costly as for Mobile Systems.
