About IAT

The Asia-Pacific Conferences on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT) is a high-quality, high-impact biennial agent conference series. The second meeting in this conference series follows the success of IAT-99 held in Hong Kong in 1999 (http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/IAT99/). IAT-2001 will primarily focus on

(1) the state-of-the-art in the development of intelligent agents and
(2) the theoretical and computational foundations of intelligent agent technology.

The aim of IAT-2001 is to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields, such as computer science, information technology, business, education, human factors, systems engineering, and robotics to

(1) examine the design principles and performance characteristics of various approaches in intelligent agent technology, and
(2) increase the cross-fertilization of ideas on the development of autonomous agents and multiagent systems among different domains.

By encouraging idea-sharing and discussions on the underlying logical, cognitive, physical, and biological foundations as well as the enabling technologies of intelligent agents, IAT-2001 is expected to stimulate the future development of new models, new methodologies, and new tools for building a variety of embodiments of agent-based systems.

The Asia-Pacific Conferences on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT) will be jointly held with the Asia-Pacific Conferences on Web Intelligence (WI).
