                        Final Call For Papers
                        ---------------------

                    9th International Symposium on
                TEMPORAL REPRESENTATION AND REASONING
                             (TIME-2002)

                http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/img/TIME-2002/

                            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.

INVITED SPEAKERS

AI Track:  Hans Kamp  (University of Stuttgart, Germany)
DB Track: David Toman (University of Waterloo, Canada)
CS Track: Moshe Vardi (Rice University, USA)
Industrial Session: Hugh Darwen (IBM, Warwick, UK)

TOPICS

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previously unpublished, research, should be written in English, and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

There are three categories of submissions:

A. REGULAR PAPERS. Submissions must not exceed the length of 11 pages;
   font size must be 11pt or larger. The submission should describe
   original, previously unpublished research.

B. SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONS. Submissions must not exceed the length of 6
   pages; font size must be 11pt or larger. The submission should
   describe an implemented tool and its features. Every system
   description should be accompanied by a system demo during the
   symposium. Papers intended for this program should be clearly
   marked as system/demo track papers.

C. INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENTS. Submissions must not exceed the length of
   6 pages; font size must be 11pt or larger. Papers describing
   significant results or problems encountered are especially valuable
   to the research community.  Papers intended for this program should
   be clearly marked as industrial track papers.

It is strongly suggested the use of the LaTeX article style at
11pt. Overlength submissions will be rejected without review. Please,
indicate the category, 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-2002/.  All
submissions must be received by Friday 22 February, 2002.  Proceedings
will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and will be subject
to IEEE Copyright.

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.
