IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT 2009)
will be jointly held with the 2009 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web
Intelligence at the University of Milano Bicocca, Milano, Italy, and it will be
sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent
Informatics (TCII), the Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), and ACM-SIGART.
IAT 2009 will provide 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 2007 will foster the development of
novel paradigms and advanced solutions in agent based computing.
The joint organization of IAT 2009 and WI 2009 will provide an
opportunity for technical collaboration beyond the two distinct
research communities. A doctoral mentoring program will be also

The conference will take place
at the University of Milano Bicocca, Milano, the industrial and
business capital of Italy. (http://www.unimib.it/go/Home/English-version)
· IAT 2009 bwill be co-located
with the 2009 IEEE/ACM/WIC International Conference on
Web Intelligence (WI2009).
Each day, either in the morning
(before parallel meeting sessions begin) or just after the lunch
hour, there will be a keynote presentation (plenary session) to
all the attendance. Some keynote presentations will be held
jointly with the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on
Web Intelligence (WI 2009). A rough plan is to have
2-3 joint keynote speakers, plus 2-3 WI related invited speakers
and 2-3 IAT related invited speakers, respectively.
2009 also welcomes Tutorial proposals, and will include
tutorials providing in-dept background on subjects that are of
broad interest to Web intelligence communities. Both short (2
hours) and long (half day) tutorial will be considered. The
tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program
and open to all attendees. Therefore, there will not be a
separate tutorials registration fee (i.e., only one conference
registration covers everything).
· IAT 2009 also 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
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press
and will be available at the workshops. Detailed information
will be available at the conference homepage.
NOTE: as in
previous editions of the IAT/WI conferences there will not be a
separate workshop or tutorial registration fee. One conference
registration will include all workshops and tutorials.
