The 2003 IEEE/WIC International Conference on Intelligent Agent
Technology (IAT 2003) will be jointly held with the 2003 IEEE/WIC
International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI 2003
http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/WI03/). The IEEE/WIC 2003 joint conferences
are sponsored and organized by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee
on Computational Intelligence (TCCI)
(http://www.cs.uvm.edu/%7Exwu/tfvi/index.shtml) and by Web Intelligence
Consortium (WIC) (http://wi-consortium.org). 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 topics and areas to be addressed include, but not limited to:

*  Applications
Complex self-organized systems modeling and development
Hard computational domains
Knowledge and data intensive systems
Physically embodied systems
Software and pervasive agents

*  Computational Models, Architecture, and Infrastructure
Agent and multi-agent infrastructures
Communication languages
Computational architectures
Heterogeneity and interoperability
Models of perception, rationality, intention, emotion,
coordination, action, and social behaviors
Multi-modal systems and interfaces
Ontology models
Tools and standards

*  Autonomy-Oriented Computation (AOC) Paradigm
Adaptive computation
Autonomous societies
Chaotic and fractal dynamics
Complex behavior characterization and engineering
Emergent behavior
Feature characterization and classification
Formal theories of complexity and computability
Self-organized criticality

Submissions and Publication

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 2003 will accept ONLY on-line submissions, containing
PDF (PostScript or MS-Word) versions.

The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer
Society Press.

IAT 2003 also welcomes Industry Track submissions, Workshop and
Tutorial proposals.

More detailed instructions and the On-Line Submission Form can be
found from the IAT 2003 homepage (http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/IAT03).

A selected number of IAT 2003 accepted papers will be expanded and
revised for inclusion in Web Intelligence and Agent Systems:
An International Journal (http://wi-consortium.org/journal.html)
and in Annual Review of Intelligent Informatics

The IEEE/WIC best paper awards will be conferred on the authors of
the best papers at the conference.
