2006 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT'06)

The 2006 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence (WI'06) and Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'06) takes place on December 18-22, 2006, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong, China. This year WI/IAT conference experience is further enhanced by joining forces with the 2006 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM'06). The IEEE/WIC/ACM 2006 joint conferences are organized by Hong Kong Baptist University, and sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), and ACM-SIGART.

WI 2006 and IAT 2006 will include tutorials providing in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest to both the Web intelligence community and the intelligent agent community. Both short (2 hours) and long (half day) tutorials will be considered. The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program.

Note: we will not have a separate tutorials registration fee this year (i.e., only one conference registration covers everything).

The following is a non-exclusive list of preferred topic areas for tutorial proposals:

Web Intelligence

Intelligent/Semantic Web Services
