IEEE/WIC Intelligent Agent Technology 2003



2003 IEEE/WIC International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT 2003)

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC)

October 13-17, 2003 Tianlun Dynasty Hotel, BEIJING, CHINA

******************************************** Homepage: ********************************************

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 The IEEE/WIC 2003 joint conferences are sponsored and organized by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computational Intelligence (TCCI) ( and by Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC) ( 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.

++++++++ Topics ++++++++

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 Protocols Scalability 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 Self-organized intelligence

* Learning and Self-Adapting Agents Adaptation and self-adaptation Artificial life Behavioral selection Behavioral self-organization Believable lifelike quality Classifier systems Coordinating perception, thought, and action Evolution and learning in dynamic environments Evolutionary computation Integrated exploration and exploitation Uncertainty management in multi-agent systems

* Data and Knowledge Management Agents Adaptation and evolution of knowledge networks Data mining Distributed knowledge systems Heterogeneous data integration and management Human-agent interaction Information filtering Knowledge aggregation Knowledge discovery Knowledge sharing Reasoning and planning

* Distributed Intelligence Coevolution Collective group behavior Coordination and cooperation Distributed intelligence Dynamics of agent groups and populations Efficiency in distributed systems Formal and computational models Market-based computing Population evolution Social integration Swarms
