Prolog: papers are solicited from different research areas, dealing with 
  time-related issues. Several topics could be of interest for the TYPES 
community. Among them, I mention here: temporal logics for dynamic data 
types; types for temporal data; type evolution; programming languages 
for temporal representation and reasoning.


The 11th International Symposium on

  (TIME 2004)


Tatihou, Basse Normandie, France
1-3 July, 2004

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together active researchers 
from distinct research areas involving the representation of, or 
reasoning with, time. As with previous meetings in this respected 
series, one of the main goals of the  TIME 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 conference is 
planned as a three-day event, and will be organised as a combination of 
technical paper presentations, an extended poster session, and four 
keynote talks.


Invited Speakers:
Michael Bohlen, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
Manolis Koubarakis, University of Crete, Greece
Ian Pratt-Hartmann, University  of Manchester, UK
Thierry Vidal, ENI Tarbes France


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unpublished, research, should be written in English, and should not be 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 nonmonotonicity
- time in problem solving (e.g. diagnosis, scheduling,...)
- time in human-machine interaction
- spatio-temporal reasoning

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
- time in workflow systems
- querying time series databases
- querying data streams

Track 3: Temporal Logic in Computer Science
- specification and verification
- synthesis and execution
- model checking algorithms
- temporal architectures
- temporal logics for distributed systems
- temporal logics of knowledge
- hybrid systems
- tools and practical systems


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unpublished research.

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 
2004 web site (http://www.greyc.unicaen.Fr/time2004).
All submissions must be received by Thursday 5 February, 2004.


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.
