=============================================== Due to numerous requests, the submission deadline has been extended to the 23rd of April 2011 =============================================== TIME 2011 Call for Papers Eighteenth International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning Luebeck, Germany, September 12-14, 2011 http://www.isp.uni-luebeck.de/time11/ 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. This year, TIME will feature a special track on interval temporal logics. The conference will span three days, and will be organized as a combination of technical paper presentations, keynote lectures, and tutorials. * IMPORTANT DATES Abstract Submission: April 23 (extended) Paper Submission: April 23 (extended) Paper Notification: May 23 TIME 2011 Symposium: September 12-14 * INVITED SPEAKERS - Nir Piterman - Gerhard Schellhorn - Jef Wijsen * 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 Interval Temporal logics 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 - tools and practical systems - temporal issues in security Special track on Interval Temporal logic This year, TIME has an additional special track on Interval Temporal Logics. This track is organized by Dimitar Guelev and Ben Moszkowski. Submissions on ITL will be primarily managed by them, though the final decision on acceptance will be taken by the whole PC. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - expressiveness, decidability, proof systems, model- and validity-checking for ITLs - modelling of system requirements in terms of time intervals - intervals versus time points in temporal modelling - Duration Calculus and other extensions and variants of ITLs - ITLs, DC, timed automata, timed regular languages and other models of real time - interval algebras and spatio-temporal reasoning - case studies, applications and tool support for interval-based reasoning * 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 will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. 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=time11 * CONFERENCE OFFICERS General Chair: Carlo Combi, University of Verona, Italy Program Committee Chairs: Martin Leucker, University of Luebeck, Germany Frank Wolter, University of Liverpool, United Kingdom Organization Chair: Martin Leucker, Universitaet Luebeck, Germany * PROGRAM COMMITTEE includes Alessandro Artale, University of Bolzano, Italy Philippe Balbiani, IRIT Toulouse, France Claudio Bettini, University of Milan, Italy Benedikt Bollig, CNRS, France Lubos Brim, University of Brno, Czech Republic Antonio Cau, De Montfort University, UK Dang Van Hung, Vietnam National University, Vietnam Clare Dixon, University of Liverpool, UK Rajeev Gore, ANU, Australia Dimitar Guelev, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Bulgaria Peter Habermehl, University Paris Diderot, France Ian Hodkinson, Imperial College London, UK Roman Kontchakov, Birkeck College London, UK Salvatore La Torre, University of Salerno, Italy Ranko Lazic, University of Warwick, UK Kamal Lodaya, IMSc, India Nicolas Markey, CNRS, France Angelo Montanari, University of Udine, Italy Ben Moszkowski, De Montfort University, UK Dirk Nowotka, University of Stuttgart, Germany Paritosh Pandya, Tata IFR, India Jean-Francois Raskin, Free University Brussels, Belgium Peter Revesz, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA Mark Reynolds, University of Western Australia, Australia Martin Sachenbacher, Technical University Munich, Germany Cesar Sanchez, University of Madrid, Spain Christian Schallhart, University of Oxford, UK Stefan Woelfl, University of Freiburg, Germany Naijun Zhan, Chinese Academy of Sciences Beijing, China Esteban Zimanyi, ULB, Belgium * FURTHER INFORMATION Questions related to submission, reviewing, and program: time11_(at)_isp.uni-luebeck.de Questions related to local organization: time11-org_(at)_isp.uni-luebeck.de _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_mailman.let.uu.nl http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
