TIME has been for more than twenty years the only yearly multidisciplinary international event dedicated to the topic of time in computer science. The purpose of the symposium is to bring together active researchers in different research areas involving temporal representation and reasoning. The symposium also welcomes research papers on the related topics of spatial and spatio-temporal representation and reasoning. In the early years, most contributions came from the Artificial Intelligence community, but the number of contributions from other areas such as Temporal Logic and Verification and partly from Temporal Databases has been increasing in the last years.

More details about TIME and the previous editions of this symposium can be found via the following link:

Call For Papers


In this symposium, in addition to theoretical and practical work in Artificial Intelligence, Databases, and Logic and Reasoning, we invite submissions focusing on the development, deployment, and evaluation of Machine Learning Systems that fall under the scope of the symposium. Such systems papers will be evaluated primarily on the quality of the empirical evaluation and reusability. Topics for TIME 2024 include (but are not limited to):

The list above is by no means exhaustive, as the aim is to foster the debate around all aspects of the suggested topics.

Finally, the authors of the top-ranked papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their contribution to a special issue in a reputable journal; more details will be provided in due time.


The submission link is available at


TIME 2024 accepts submissions in PDF format, no longer than 12 pages excluding references and appendix. The appendix is limited to 5 pages, and the reviewers may or may not take it into account for their recommendation. Submissions must be formatted following the LIPIcs instructions and preferably redacted in LaTeX.

TIME policy is single blind, so the names of the authors need not be hidden in the submitted draft. Members of the program committee are allowed to submit papers. Submitted papers will be refereed for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance to the symposium.

Submissions to TIME 2024 must be original; parallel submissions of the same material to other conferences or journals are not allowed. At least one author of each accepted paper must register at the symposium and present the paper.

All questions about submissions should be emailed to the organizers.

Important Dates

Be mindful of the following dates:

Note: all deadlines are AoE (Anywhere on Earth).


Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings, which will be published by LIPIcs-Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics. This is a series of high-quality peer-reviewed conference proceedings, and published according to the principle of OpenAccess.
