*** Apologies for multiple postings  ***


*26 - 28 September, Pensacola, FL, USA*


*TIME 2013: 20th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and


(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.

*Important Dates*

Abstract submission: 27 April 2013

Paper submission: 30 April 2013

Paper Notification: 29 May 2013

Final version due: 12 June 2013

Early Registration: until 16 June 2013

Registration: 22 June - 26 August 2013

Late Registration: from 26 August 2013

TIME Symposium: 26-28 September 2011

*Invited Speakers*

James Allen, IHMC and University of Rochester, USA

Aaron R. Bradley, CU Boulder, USA


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unpublished content, should be written in English, and must not be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 at:

*Special Track On Temporal Data Mining, OLAP And Data Warehouses*

This year, TIME has an additional special track on Temporal Data Mining,
OLAP, and Data Warehouses and  organized by Carlo Combi.  Submissions for
the special track will be primarily managed by him, though the final
decision on

acceptance will be taken by the whole PC.

Exploring and mining huge amounts of time-oriented data is an acknowledged
need in several domains; Such a need poses several challenges
calling theoretical and practical research.  Several research topics
underly the study of solutions allowing users to explore and mine time
oriented data: from the modeling of multidimensional temporal data, to the
efficient storage and retrieval of time-series and temporal data, to the
definition of algorithms for data mining, and so on. Moreover, several
application domains could benefit from advancements of such kind of
research: among them, it is worth to mention here medicine, huge amounts of
time-oriented data are daily produced and need to be analyzed/mined to
improve the overall quality of healthcare processes.

High quality contributions for the special track are welcome in, but are
not limited to, any of the following sub-areas of research:

- Temporal data warehouses

- Modeling and querying multidimensional temporal data

- Conceptual modeling of multidimensional temporal data and processes

-Indexing temporal and spatio-temporal data warehouses

- Summarization of time-oriented data

- Mining algorithms for temporal data

- Temporal association rules

- Temporal OLAP

- ETL and temporal data

- Reconciled temporal databases

- Merging multiple and heterogeneous time-oriented databases

- Design and implementation of temporal OLAP systems

- Process mining and exploration

- Temporal data mining in medicine

- Temporal healthcare data warehouses

- Time series analysis and mining

- Temporal pattern discovery

- Visual OLAP for temporal data

- Semistructured temporal data warehouses
