WI-IAT 2010 will take place in Toronto. Toronto is Canada’s largest city. More than 60% of the US population live within a 90-minute flight to Toronto. The city of Toronto is easily accessible from all the major international cities in the world and Toronto Pearson International Airport has non-stop or the same plane service to 42 United States cities and 56 other international cities such as Rome, Paris, Frankfurt, London, Beijing, Tokyo and Warsaw.
Following the great success of IAT'01 held in Maebashi City, Japan, IAT'03 held in Halifax, Canada, IAT'04 held in Beijing, China, IAT'05 in Compiegne University of Technology, France, IAT'06 held in Hong Kong, IAT'07 held in Silicon Valley USA, IAT'08 held in Sydney, Australia, IAT'09 held in Milano, Italy. IAT 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 2010 will foster the development of novel paradigms and advanced solutions in agent-based computing.
The 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT-10) will be jointly held with the 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI-10). The IEEE/WIC/ACM 2010 joint conferences are organized by York University, Toronto Canada, and sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), and ACM-SIGART.
Web Intelligence (WI) has been recognized as a new direction for scientific research and development to explore the fundamental roles as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) [E.g., knowledge representation, planning, knowledge discovery and data mining, intelligent agents, and social network intelligence) and advanced Information Technology (IT) [E.g., wireless networks, ubiquitous devices, social networks, semantic Web, wisdom Web, and data/knowledge grids) on the next generation of Web-empowered products, systems, services, and activities. It is one of the most important as well as promising IT research fields in the era of Web and agent intelligence.
The 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI-10) will be jointly held with the 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT-10). The IEEE/WIC/ACM 2010 joint conferences are organized by York University, Toronto Canada, and sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), and ACM-SIGART.
Following the great success of WI'01 held in Maebashi City, Japan, Wi'03 held in Halifax, Canada, WI'04 held in Beijing, China, WI'05 in Compiegne University of Technology, France, WI'06 held in Hong Kong, WI'07 held in Silicon Valley USA, WI'08 held in Sydney, Australia, WI'09 held in Milano, Italy. WI-10 provides a leading international forum for researchers and practitioners to (1) present the state-of-the-art WI technologies; (2) examine performance characteristics of various approaches in Web-based intelligent information technology; (3) cross-fertilize ideas on the development of Web-based intelligent information systems among different domains. By idea-sharing and discussions on the underlying foundations and the enabling technologies of Web intelligence, WI 2010 will capture current important developments of new models, new methodologies and new tools for building a variety of embodiments of Web-based intelligent information systems.

Since 1997 Alan Smeaton has been a Professor of Computing at Dublin City University where he is Deputy Director of CLARITY: Centre for Sensor Web Technologies. His research interests are in the management of all kinds of heterogeneous, noisy, and errorsome data. Initially his research focused on searching through text archives and then moved to image search and on to video analysis, indexing and retrieval. Since 2001 Alan has been a founder and coordinator of TRECVid, an annual benchmarking activity with worldwide participation of approximately 400 researchers which measures the effectiveness of content-based operations on video archives. More recently Alan has focused his work on managing information from heterogeneous sensor networks, making sense of the flood of data that comes from sensor applications in fields as diverse as energy monitoring, sports participation, injury rehabilitation, digital lifelogging, and environmental monitoring.
