Call For Papers --------------- 9th International Symposium on TEMPORAL REPRESENTATION AND REASONING (TIME-2002) http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/img/TIME-2 002/ Manchester, UK 7-9 July, 2002 The purpose of this symposium is to bring together active researchers from distinct research areas involving representation of, or reasoning with, time. As with previous meetings in this respected series, one of the main goals of this symposium will be to bridge the gap between theoretical and applied research in temporal representation and reasoning. Thus, we especially encourage submissions concerning temporal aspects within areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Temporal/Spatial Databases and Applications of Temporal Logic in Computer Science in order to achieve a multi-disciplinary perspective on the topic and to benefit from cross-fertilisation of ideas. There are three tracks in the symposium with separate program committees, all overseen by the program chairs. The symposium is planned as a three-day event, and will be organised as a combination of technical paper presentations, an extended poster session, one or more panels, an industrial session, a system/tool demonstration session, and three keynote talks. Submission of high quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are welcome. Submitted papers should describe original, previously unpublished, research, should be written in English, and should not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Topics of interest within the scope of each track include, but are not restricted to: Track1: Temporal Representation and Reasoning in AI - temporal aspects of agent-based systems - temporal constraint reasoning - reasoning about actions and change - temporal languages for planning - temporal languages and architectures - ontologies of time - expressive power versus tractability - belief and uncertainty in temporal knowledge - temporal learning and discovery - time and nonmonotonism - time in problem solving (e.g. diagnosis, scheduling,...) - time in human-machine interaction Track 2: Time Management in Databases - temporal data models - temporal database design - temporal query languages - indexing of temporal data - temporal database systems - spatio-temporal databases - constraint databases - temporal data mining - time in multimedia databases - time in web applications - time in federated and heterogeneous systems Track 3: Temporal Logic in Computer Science - modal temporal logic - first order temporal logics - expressiveness, decidability, and complexity issues - specification and verification - synthesis and execution - model checking algorithms - temporal theorem proving - temporal languages and architectures - temporal logics for distributed systems - temporal logics of knowledge - hybrid systems - tools and practical systems PAPER SUBMISSION All submissions must be received by Friday 22 February, 2002. Papers must not exceed the length of 11 pages; font size must be 11pt or larger. It is suggested the use of the LaTeX article style at 11pt. Overlength submissions will be rejected without review. Please, indicate the track and topic(s) on the first page. Accepted papers will be invited for full presentation or a poster presentation. Papers should be electronically submitted via the form available at the TIME-2002 web page: http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/img/TIME-2 002/ PROCEEDINGS As usual within the TIME series, proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and will be subject to IEEE Copyright. Camera ready papers are expected to be produced with the author kits sent by IEEE Computer Society Press. It is also our intention to organise a special issue of a respected journal, containing extended versions of selected papers from the symposium.
