This paper is presenting a way of integrating conflicting temporal information from multiple information providers considering a property-based resolution. The properties considered in this paper are the time and uncertainty because of conflicting information providers. The property based resolution requires a flexible query mechanism, where answers are considered as bounds, taking into account the tendency of things to occur and also the might happen ability of things. Finally some attention is paid to a database environment with non-static members.
