The 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'07) will be jointly held with the 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI'07), the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM'07), and the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing (GrC'07) for providing synergism among the four research areas. It will provide opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of previous conferences. The four 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 four conferences. We are also planning a joint panel and joint paper sessions that discuss common problems in the four areas.
IAT 2007 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 2007 will foster the development of novel paradigms and advanced solutions in agent-based computing.
+++++++++++ Highlights +++++++++++
The conference will be held in Silicon Valley, California. Many high-tech companies and three distinguished universities (Stanford, UC Berkely and UCSC) are just around the corner. The highlight of the conference is that a unique forum consisting of a half-day demo session and free discussion will be organized to link industries and academics. Leading IT companies like IBM, Google, and Yahoo etc will present at the conference.
The area now known as Silicon Valley has been a center of technological development since the 1950's. The name Silicon Valley stems from the early 1970's, when the area had become the center for many semiconductor companies. While still hosting semiconductor and microprocessor companies, the region now hosts the headquarters of high tech companies of every kind, including many of the best known and most prestigious names in personal computers, Web search, Internet auctions, networking, storage, databases, etc.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ On-Line Submissions and Publication ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
High-quality papers in all IAT related areas are solicited. Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 7 pages in the IEEE 2-column format, the same as the camera-ready format (see the Author Guidelines of last year at http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/cscps/cps/final/iat06.xml ). All submitted papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
Note that IAT'07 will accept ONLY on-line submissions, containing PDF versions. Please use the Submission Form on the IAT'07 website to submit your paper. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press that are indexed by EI.
Submissions accepted as regular papers will be allocated 7 pages in the proceedings and accorded oral presentation times in the main conference. Submissions accepted as short papers will be allocated 4 pages in the proceedings and will have a shorter presentation time at the conference than regular papers.
All co-authors will be notified at all time, for the submission, notification, and confirmation on the attendance. Submitting a paper to the conference and workshops means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the conference to present the paper. The acceptance list and no-show list will be openly published on-line. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a notification.
A selected number of IAT'07 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 (http://www.wi-consortium.org/annual.html )
More detailed instructions and the On-Line Submission Form can be found from the IAT'07 homepage: http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/wi07/iat /.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++ IAT'07 Best Paper Awards +++++++++++++++++++++++++
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.
The full author list and paper title will be announced on the Web Intelligence Consortium homepage: http://wi-consortium.org/html/wicawards.html
++++++++++++++++++++ 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 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 the homepage: http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/wi07/wi /
We are planning to arrange the Industry/Demo track in the afternoon of November 3 (before and during the conference reception), jointly with the IAT'07 Demo sessions. Leading IT companies in Silicon Valley will be invited to attend this track.
++++++++++ Workshops ++++++++++
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 published by the IEEE Computer Society Press that are indexed by EI, and will be available at the workshops. Detailed information is available at the conference homepage.
Note: we will not have a separate workshop registration fee (i.e., only one conference registration covers everything).
