The 2004 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent=
 Agent
Technology (IAT'04) will be jointly held with the 2004=
 IEEE/WIC/ACM
International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI'04
http://www.maebashi-it.org/WI04/).  The IEEE/WIC/ACM 2004 joint
conferences are sponsored and organized by IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Computational Intelligence (TCCI)
(http://www.cs.uvm.edu/~xwu/tcci/index.shtml), Web Intelligence
Consortium (WIC) (http://wi-consortium.org), and ACM-SIGART
(http://www.acm.org/sigart/).  The upcoming meeting in this=
 conference
series follows the great successes of IAT-99 held in Hong Kong,=
 IAT-01
held in Maebashi City, Japan, and IAT-03 held in Halifax,=
 Canada.

IAT 2004 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 2004 will foster the development of 
novel paradigms and advanced solutions in agent-based computing.
