CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Temporal Representation and Reasoning, Sep12-14, 2011, GERMANY

18th TIME 2011, Luebeck (Germany)


  Registration:       18 June - 14 August 2011
  Late Registration:  from 15 August 2011
  TIME Symposium:     12 - 14 September 2011


  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.
