This workshop is intended as a forum for discussion, exchange of points of view, assessment of results and methods, and as a source of dissemination and promotion of the newest advances in the area of spatial and temporal reasoning. Recent years have witnessed remarkable advances in some of the longstanding problems of the field (for instance, new results about tractability for spatial calculi, explicit construction of models, characterization of important subclasses of relations), as well as in the development of new areas (the appearance of new integrated spatio-temporal calculi is one example, as well as the development of multi-dimensional spatial calculi). Likewise, proposals have been made to remedy some of the weak points of the symbolic approach, by introducing fuzzy versions of classical calculi, or importing non-monotonic techniques for dealing with incomplete information. At the same time, leaders in AI have sounded the need for solving real problems and making the work on representation and reasoning relevant to the real world.
Workshop Format

The workshop consists of two parts, one part of original submissions and a second part of highlights, where the program committee of the workshop invites selected papers that have been published elsewhere in the preceding year to be presented and discussed again at the workshop. The idea is to give every workshop participant the opportunity to get updated about the latest trends and new landmark papers in the area of spatial and temporal representation and reasoning and to discuss these papers in detail.

Up to 40 participants will be selected to attend the workshop, contributing and participating in discussions. Accepted papers will be included in the workshop notes, which will be published in the AAAI Technical Report series. Screening will be based on reviews and relevance to the workshop goals.
Submission Requirements

Interested authors should format their papers according to the AAAI instructions for authors and should submit their paper by email to Hans Guesgen. Papers should not exceed 10 pages and should be in the form of an extended abstract or complete research, survey, or position paper. Selection of participants will be based on relevance to the indicated focus of the workshop, clarity of the work submitted, and the strength of the research.
