CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: "Temporal Representation and Reasoning", 11 or 15 Sep 2011, GERMANY


18th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2011) will be hosted by the University of Lubeck, Germany.

TIME 2011 aims to bring together researchers from distinct research areas involving the management 
of temporal data as well as the reasoning about temporal aspects of information.

This unique and well-established event further has as its objectives to bridge theoretical and 
applied research, as well as to serve as an interdisciplinary forum for exchange among researchers 
from the areas of artificial intelligence, database management, logic and verification, and beyond.

The organizers have made arrangements to facilitate the running of one day workshops and invite 
workshop proposals. Dates for possible workshops are:

   Sunday, September 11
   Thursday, September 15

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops on topics relating to 
artificial intelligence, database management, logic and verification. Workshops will have to be 
financially self-supporting. The TIME Organizing Committee will determine the final list of 
accepted workshops subject to the availability of space and facilities. It is not necessary to 
register for TIME in order to attend workshops. Meeting rooms will be reserved by the TIME 

Proposals should consist of two parts. First, a short scientific justification of the proposed
topic, its significance, and the particular benefits of the workshop to the community, as well 
as a list of previous or related workshops (if relevant). A second, organizational part should

- contact information of the workshop organizers.
- estimate of the audience size.
- proposed format and agenda (for example, demo sessions, tutorials, etc.)
