IAT 2011

The 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology
Lyon, France, 22/08/2011–27/08/2011

Welcome to the 10th edition of the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology.
This edition being the tenth birthday of WI, the WIC has decided to organize it in memoriam of Herbert A. Simon and to give a special award to WI most significant papers of the ten editions.
The 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT 2011) will be jointly held with the 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence Campus Universitaire de la Doua, Lyon, France, and it will be sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), the Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), and ACM-SIGART.
IAT 2011 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 (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 2011 will foster the development of novel paradigms and advanced solutions in agent and multi-agent based computing. The joint organization of IAT 2011 and WI 2011 provides an opportunity for technical and scientific collaboration beyond the two distinct research communities.
