The 13th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and
Reasoning will be held on June 15 - 17, 2006 in Budapest, Hungary.
The symposium will bring together researchers working in various
areas that involve the representation of and reasoning about
temporal phenomena. As with previous meetings in this unique and
well-established 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.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Temporal representation and Reasoning in AI:
temporal aspects of agent- and policy-based systems
- temporal constraint reasoning
- reasoning about actions and change
- temporal languages for planning
- temporal languages and architectures
- ontologies of time and space-time
- expressive power versus tractability
- belief and uncertainty in temporal knowledge
- temporal learning and discovery
- time and nonmonotonicity
- time in problem solving
- spatio-temporal reasoning
- Representation and Reasoning about Time in Language:
- database representations of temporal information from text
- temporal information extraction
- standards for encoding the values of temporal expressions in
- establishing ordering, inclusion, and coreference relations in
- leveraging of ontologies for temporal information
- reasoning about modals, i.e., possible events, necessary events,
counterfactual events, etc.
- semantics of indeterminate or vague temporal references
- semantics and pragmatics of temporal prepositions
- application of logics for temporal reasoning in language
- computational analysis of temporal aspects of narrative structure
Time Management in Databases:
- (spatio)-temporal data models/query languages/indexing/systems
- moving objects databases
- constraint databases
- temporal data mining
- time in multimedia, federated and heterogeneous systems
- querying time series and data streams
- time in workflow and ECA systems
- time-dependent security policies
- Temporal Logic in Computer Science:
- specification and vverification of systems
- synthesis and execution
- model checking algorithms
- verification of infinite-state systems
- reasoning about transition systems
- temporal architectures
- temporal logics of knowledge or distributed systems
- hybrid systems and real-time logics
- tools and practical systems
- temporal issues in security
The symposium welcomes new directions in time research and topics
that are currently underrepresented in the symposium.

As usual within the TIME series, proceedings will be published by
IEEE Computer Society Press and will be subject to IEEE Copyright.
Accepted papers will be invited for full presentation or poster
presentation. One author of each accepted paper has to register for
the symposium and present the paper. Camera ready papers will be
produced with the author kits sent by IEEE Computer Society Press.
It is also our intention to organize a special issue of a leading
journal, containing extended versions of selected papers from the
The conference will be held at the Hotel
Budapest, where a block of rooms for conference
attendees will be reserved.
Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is situated in the heart of Central
Europe, on both sides of the Danube (Duna) River. On the right bank
lies hilly and wooded Buda and on the left bank plain Pest.
