The 2004 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Confernce on

Web Intelligence (WI 2004)


Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT 2004)

September 20-24, 2004, Beijing, China


The 2003 IEEE/WIC International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT 2003) is a high-quality, high-impact agent conference, which is jointly held with the 2003 IEEE/WIC International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI 2003). The IEEE/WIC 2003 joint conferences are sponsored and organized by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computational Intelligence (TCCI) and by Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), an international organization dedicated to the promotion of world-wide scientific research and industrial development in the era of Web and agent intelligence.

The upcoming meeting in this conference series follows the great success of IAT-99 held in Hong Kong in 1999 ( and IAT-01 held in Maebashi City, Japan in 2001
( The aim of IAT 2003 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 multi-agent 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 2003 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.
