**********************************************************************

The 2005 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent
Technology (IAT'05) will be jointly held with the 2005 IEEE/WIC/ACM
International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI'05
http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/WI05/, http://www.hds.utc.fr/WI05/).
The IEEE/WIC/ACM 2005 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 success of IAT-99 held in Hong
Kong, IAT-01 held in Maebashi City, Japan, IAT-03 held in Halifax,
Canada, and IAT-04 in Beijing, China.
