######################################################################

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:

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
