·        Temporal representation and reasoning for Covid-19

o   we are looking for submissions dealing with temporal issues in any context having to manage Covid-19 pandemic (healthcare, medicine, social contexts, school, and so on)


Topics for TIME 2021 include (but are not limited to):

Submission & Publication

TIME 2021 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 (https://submission.dagstuhl.de/documentation/authors), and preferably redacted in LaTex.  All submissions have to be made electronically via easychair at  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=time20211 (details at time2021.aau.at).

Paper abstracts must be submitted one week before the final paper submission deadline.

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

Submissions to TIME 2021 must be original, parallel submissions of the same material to other conferences or journals are not allowed. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings, which will be published by LIPIcs-Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (https://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics/),  a series of high-quality peer-reviewed conference proceedings which are published according to the principle of OpenAccess. At least one author of each accepted paper must register at the conference and present either virtually or (if possible) in person. In-person participation in the symposium will not be a prerequisite for publication.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their contribution to a special issue of a high-quality journal yet to be decided.
