      Presentations of Accepted Research Track Papers.

The research track papers were selected from 545 submissions received
from over 50 countries and regions.

All main conference and workshop proceedings will be published in the
conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press, indexed by EI.

!!! Advance Registration by Oct 1, 2007 !!!
On-line registration (and more information) at

Regular registration covers all the events of WI-IAT'07 during the
four conference days including keynotes, tutorials, accepted paper
presentations, and workshops, as well as includes proceedings for one
of the conferences or its associated workshops.


WI'07, IAT'07, BIBM'07 and GrC'07 will be co-located, providing
synergism among the three research areas: Web Intelligence and
Intelligent Agent Technology, Bioinformatics and Biomedicine, and
Granular Computing. This provides 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, keynote talks, panels and tutorials across
the three conferences.
