20th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning

26-28 September 2013, Pensacola, FL (USA)

TIME 13 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 (see http://time.dico.unimi.it) 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.

Registration is now open here.

Call For Papers

The call for papers can be downloaded here.


Submissions of high quality papers describing research results or on-going work 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 Submitted papers should contain original, previously unpublished content, should be written in English, and must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.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 Conference Publishing Services (CPS).

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 guidelines and must not exceed 8 pages; over-length submissions may be rejected without review. Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair system here.
