Apologies for multiple copies ------------------------------------------------------------------------- TIME 2012 Call for Papers Nineteenth International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning Leicester, UK, September 12-14, 2012 http://www.tech.dmu.ac.uk/STRL/time12/ TIME 2012 is an official event of THE ALAN TURING YEAR http://www.mathcomp.leeds.ac.uk/turing2012/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The TIME symposium series is a well-established annual event that brings together researchers from all areas of computer science that involve temporal representation and reasoning. This includes, but is not limited to, artificial intelligence, temporal databases, and the verification of software and hardware systems. In addition to fostering interdisciplinarity, the TIME symposia emphasize bridging the gap between theoretical and applied research. The conference will span three days, and will be organized as a combination of technical paper presentations, keynote lectures, and tutorials. In addition, TIME 2012 will feature a special track on Temporal Representation and Reasoning in Medicine. * IMPORTANT DATES Abstract Submission: April 16 Paper Submission: April 20 Paper Notification: May 20 Camera Ready Copy Due: June 24 TIME 2012 Symposium: September 12-14 * TOPICS The main topics of the conference are: (1) Temporal Representation and Reasoning in AI (2) Temporal Database Management (3) Temporal Logic and Verification in Computer Science (4) Special Track on Temporal Representation and Reasoning in Medicine Temporal Representation and Reasoning in AI includes, but is not limited to: - Temporal aspects of agent- and policy-based systems - Spatial and temporal reasoning - Reasoning about actions and change - Planning and planning languages - Ontologies of time and space-time - Belief and uncertainty in temporal knowledge - Temporal learning and discovery - Time in problem solving (e.g. diagnosis, scheduling) - Time in human-machine interaction - Temporal information extraction - Time in natural language processing - Spatio-temporal knowledge representation systems - Spatio-temporal ontologies for the semantic web Temporal Database Management includes, but is not limited to: - Temporal data models and query languages - Temporal query processing and indexing - Temporal data mining - Time series data management - Stream data management - Spatio-temporal data management, including moving objects - Data currency and expiration - Indeterminate and imprecise temporal data - Temporal constraints - Temporal aspects of workflow and ECA systems - Real-time databases - Time-dependent security policies - Privacy in temporal and spatio-temporal data - Temporal aspects of multimedia databases - Temporal aspects of e-services and web applications - Temporal aspects of distributed systems - Novel applications of temporal database management - Experiences with real applications Temporal Logic and Verification in Computer Science includes, but is not limited to: - Specification and verification of systems - Verification of web applications - Synthesis and execution - Model checking algorithms - Verification of infinite-state systems - Reasoning about transition systems - Temporal architectures - Temporal logics for distributed systems - Temporal logics of knowledge - Hybrid systems and real-time logics - Interval temporal logics - Temporal logics: expressiveness, decidability, and complexity - Tools and practical systems - Temporal issues in security * SPECIAL TRACK ON TEMPORAL REPRESENTATION AND REASONING IN MEDICINE This year, TIME has an additional special track on Temporal Representation and Reasoning in Medicine organized by Carlo Combi. Submissions for the special track will be primarily managed by him, though the final decision on acceptance will be taken by the whole PC. Representing, maintaining, querying, and reasoning about time-oriented medical data are a major theoretical and practical research area. Temporal representation and reasoning deals with storage and retrieval of data that have heterogeneous temporal dimensions, with the support of various inference tasks involving time-oriented data, such as planning and diagnosing, and with the formal specification of temporal systems. Temporal representation and reasoning in medicine holds a long history and received an increasing interest over the last 30 years: indeed, it is important to medical decision making (e.g., in clinical diagnosis and therapy planning) and in medical data modeling and managing (e.g., for representation of the patient's medical record). High quality contributions for the special track are welcome in, but are not limited to, any of the following sub-areas of research: - Temporal reasoning and time-oriented diagnosis or therapy-planning in medicine - Temporal constraint representation and management in medical databases - Querying and maintaining time-oriented medical databases - Modeling and querying time-oriented medical data - Acquisition, maintenance, sharing, and reuse of temporal medical knowledge - Handling multiple and heterogeneous time-oriented clinical databases - Design and implementation of time-oriented medical information systems - Summarization of time-oriented medical data - Temporal data mining in medicine - Visualization of temporal clinical data and knowledge - Temporal knowledge and medical ontologies - Clinical guidelines, workflows and temporal information - Managing multimedia temporal data * PAPER SUBMISSION Submissions of high quality papers describing research results are solicited. Submitted papers should contain original, previously unpublished content, should be written in English, and must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three reviewers for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings which, as in previous years, are expected to be published by the IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Acceptance of a paper is contingent on one author presenting the paper at the symposium. Submissions should be in PDF format (with the necessary fonts embedded). They must be formatted according to the IEEE guide-lines described at ftp://pubftp.computer.org/press/outgoing/ proceedings/8.5x11 - Formatting files/ and must not exceed 8 pages; over-length submissions may be rejected without review. Papers are submitted electronically via EasyChair: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=time12 * CONFERENCE OFFICERS General Chair: Ben Moszkowski, De Montfort University, UK Program Committee Chairs: Ben Moszkowski, De Montfort University, UK Mark Reynolds, University of Western Australia, Australia Paolo Terenziani, University of Piemonte Orientale, Italy Organizational Chairs: Antonio Cau, De Montfort University, UK Hongji Yang, De Montfort University, UK * PROGRAM COMMITTEE Alessandro Artale, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy Alexander Artikis, National Centre for Scientific Research "Demokritos", Greece Philippe Balbiani, Institut de recherche en informatique de Toulouse, France Claudio Bettini, University of Milan, Italy Antonio Cau, De Montfort University, UK Carlo Combi, University of Verona, Italy Amar Das, Stanford University, USA Clare Dixon, University of Liverpool, UK Zhenhua Duan, Xidian University, Xi'an, China Carlo Alberto Furia, ETH Zurich, Switzerland Antony Galton, University of Exeter, UK Fabio Grandi, University of Bologna, Italy Keijo Heljanko, Aalto University, Finland Jose Juarez, University of Murcia, Spain Martin Leucker, University of Luebeck, Germany Silvia Miksch, Vienna University of Technology, Austria Angelo Montanari, University of Udine, Italy Ben Moszkowski, De Montfort University, UK James Pustejovsky, Brandeis University, USA Jean-Francois Raskin, Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium Jochen Renz, Australian National University, Australia Peter Revesz, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA Mark Reynolds, University of Western Australia, Australia Lucia Sacchi, Brunel University, UK Martin Sachenbacher, Technical University Munich, Germany Cesar Sanchez, IMDEA Software Institute, Spain Yuval Shahar, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel Richard Snodgrass, University of Arizona, USA Paolo Terenziani, University of Piemonte Orientale, Italy Richard Trefler, University of Waterloo, Canada Stefan Woelfl, University of Freiburg, Germany Naijun Zhan, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China * FURTHER INFORMATION Questions related to submission, reviewing, and program: time12_(at)_dmu.ac.uk Questions related to local organization: time12-org_(at)_dmu.ac.uk -- ------------------------------------------------------------------------ | Martin Leucker | | Institute for Software Engineering and Programming Languages | | University of Luebeck | | Germany | ------------------------------------------------------------------------ | Tel.: +49/451/500 5551 | Email: leucker_(at)_isp.uni-luebeck.de | | Fax: +49/451/500 5557 | Web: http://www.isp.uni-luebeck.de | ------------------------------------------------------------------------ __________________________________________ - ELSNET mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_elsnet.org - To manage your subscription go to: http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
