12-14 September 2012, Leicester, UK

19th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning

TIME 12 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 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.

TIME 12 is an official event of THE ALAN TURING YEAR

Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair system.


The symposium will encompass

  • Track on Temporal Representation and Reasoning in AI
  • Track on Temporal Database Management
