THE 2009 IEEE/WIC/ACM INTERNATIONAL JOINT CONFERENCES ON
WEB INTELLIGENCE (WI 2009)
INTELLIGENT AGENT TECHNOLOGY (IAT 2009)

September 15th – 18th 2009
University of Milano Bicocca, Milano Italy

HIGHLIGHTS
WI-IAT 2009 will be held in Milano, Italy’s business city, one of the
most famous places in the world for fashion, design and history. It will
be hosted by the University of Milano Bicocca, Italy. In addition to
presentations of regular research papers, workshops, tutorials, industry
track, a PhD mentory program, and a demo track will be organized.

WI 2009 will provide a leading international forum aiming at exploring
the fundamental interactions between AI-engineering and Advanced
Information Technology (AIT) on the next generation of Web systems and
services. Here AI-engineering is a general term that refers to a new
area, slightly beyond traditional AI: brain informatics, human level AI,
intelligent agents, social network intelligence and classical areas,
such as knowledge engineering, representation, planning, and data mining
and discovery are examples. WI research seeks to explore the most
critical technology and engineering to bring in the next generation Web
systems.

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 examine the design principles and
performance characteristics of various approaches in intelligent agent
technology, and to increase the cross fertilization of ideas on the
development of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems among different
domains.

The joint organization of IAT 2009 and WI 2009 will provide an
opportunity for technical collaboration beyond the two distinct research
communities.
