CALL FOR PAPERS
The purpose of this symposium is to bring together active researchers from distinct research areas involving representation of and reasoning about temporal phenomena. As with previous meetings in this well-established series (see http://time.dico.unimi.it), one of the goals of the TIME symposium will be to cast a bridge between theoretical and applied research in temporal representation and reasoning. Thus, we especially encourage submissions concerning temporal issues within areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, 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-fertilization of ideas.
The conference is planned as a three-day event, and will be organised as a combination of technical paper presentations, an extended poster session, and keynote talks.
Topics of Interests
Track1 - Temporal Representation/Reasoning in AI and Linguistics: 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 and space-time, spatio-temporal reasoning, expressive power versus tractability, belief and uncertainty in temporal knowledge, time and nonmonotonic reasoning, interval temporal logics, time and temporality in natural language processing.
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, temporal data privacy & security, time in multimedia databases, time in web applications, time in federated and heterogeneous systems, time in workflow systems, querying time series databases, querying data streams.
Track 3 - Temporal Logic in Computer Science: temporal specification, synthesis, and verification of systems, model checking of temporal logics, verification of infinite-state systems, temporal logics for distributed systems, expressiveness of temporal languages, decidability and complexity of temporal logics, logics of knowledge and time, metric and real-time logics and timed automata, temporal logics and concurrency, temporal issues in security, tools and practical systems.
Submissions of high quality papers describing accomplished results or on-going work on original, previously unpublished research, are welcome. Submitted papers should be written in English, and should not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions must not exceed the length of 11 pages with font size 11pt or larger. The submission should be in PDF format (with necessary fonts embedded for the best result). The use of the LaTeX article style at 11pt is strongly suggested when the article is prepared. Overlength submissions may be rejected without review. Accepted papers will be invited for a full presentation or a poster presentation. Papers should be electronically submitted via the online system available at the TIME 2007 web site, which will be open for submissions from January 10, 2007. All paper submissions must be accompanied (as required by the submission system) by separately uploaded information containing the title, abstract, the author details, indication of the track and topic(s). That information should be posted on the system together with, or prior to, the full submission which must contain the abstract and the author details, too. The conference system will close for uploading on Feb 19 at 5pm GMT sharp, and no further submissions or updates will be considered.
Poster submissions are also accepted at the TIME 2007 submission web system. The poster authors are required to submit a one-page description with font size 11pt or larger in PDF format. Descriptions of accepted posters will be included in the symposium proceedings. All poster submissions should be emailed by the authors as attachments to email@example.com, by March 14.
As usual for 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.
