 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.
