In response to many requests for an extension, we are pleased to extend the paper submission deadline for IAT 2006 to 12 July 2006.


The 2006 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT-06) will be jointly held with the 2006 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI-06) and the 6th IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM-06) for providing synergism among the three research areas. It will provide opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of previous conferences. The three conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can attend workshops, sessions and tutorials across the three conferences. We are also planning a joint panel and joint paper sessions that discuss common problems in the three areas.

IAT 2006 provides a leading international forum 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 sociological foundations as well as the enabling technologies of intelligent agents, IAT 2006 will foster the development of novel paradigms and advanced solutions in agent-based computing.

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.

The upcoming meeting in this conference series follows the great success of IAT-99 held in Hong Kong in 1999, IAT-01 held in Maebashi City, Japan in 2001, IAT-03 held in Halifax, Canada, IAT-04 held in Beijing, China and IAT-05 held in Compiegne University of Technology, France.

The topics and areas include, but not limited to:

Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC)
Autonomous Knowledge and Information Agents
Agent Systems Modeling and Methodology
Distributed Problem Solving
Autonomous Auctions and Negotiation

Paper Submission

High-quality papers in all IAT related areas are solicited. Papers exploring new directions or areas will receive a careful and supportive review. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. Note that IAT'06 will accept ONLY on-line submissions, containing PDF versions.

Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 8 pages in the IEEE 2-column format (see the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines at, and will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to data mining, originality, significance, and clarity. Please use the Submission Form on the IAT'06 website to submit your paper. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press that is indexed by EI.

A selected number of IAT-06 accepted papers will be expanded and revised for inclusion in Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An International Journal ( and in Annual Review of Intelligent Informatics (

The best paper awards will be conferred at the conference on the authors of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best application paper. Application-oriented submissions will be considered for the best application paper award.

More detailed instructions and the On-Line Submission Form can be found from the IAT-06 homepages:

Industry / Demo-Track

We solicit Industry/Demo-Track papers by the following methods:

  1. Industry papers of 4 pages can be submitted on the same schedule as the research track.
  2. Separate 2-page demo proposals can be submitted at a later schedule.
  3. Full regular paper submissions can include a demo option. That is, a full paper submissions will be asked to specify if they would like to give a demonstration; choice of demonstrations (while utilizing information from the regular reviewing process) will be selected based on value as a demonstration.

For options 1) and 2), please find more detailed instructions at:

We are planning to arrange the Demo session in the afternoon of December 19, 2006 (before and during the conference reception), jointly with the WI'06 and ICDM'06 Demo sessions.


IAT'06 welcomes Workshop proposals. As an important part of the conference, the workshop program will focus on new research challenges and initiatives. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop Proceedings, which are expected to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press that is indexed by EI, will be available at the workshops. Detailed information is available at the conference homepage.

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


IAT'06 also welcomes Tutorial proposals. IAT'06 will include tutorials providing in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest to 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. Detailed information is available at the conference homepage.

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