 The Second Asia-Pacific Conference on 
 Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'2001)
 =======================================

The 21st century is the age of Internet and World Wide Web. The Web
revolutionizes the way we gather, process, and use information. At the
same time, it also redefines the meanings and processes of business,
commerce, marketing, finance, publishing, education, research,
development, as well as other aspects of our daily life. Although
individual Web-based information systems are constantly being
deployed, advanced issues and techniques for developing and for
benefiting from Web intelligence still remain to be systematically
studied.

Broadly speaking, Web Intelligence (WI) exploits AI and advanced
information technology on the Web and Internet. It is the key and the
most urgent research field of IT for business intelligence.

The Asia-Pacific Conference on Web Intelligence (WI) is an
international forum for researchers and practitioners

(1) to present the state-of-the-art in the development of Web intelligence; 
(2) to examine performance characteristics of various approaches in 
 Web-based intelligent information technology;
(3) to 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'2001 is expected to
stimulate the future development of new models, new methodologies, and
new tools for building a variety of embodiments of Web-based
intelligent information systems.

The Asia-Pacific Conference on Web Intelligence (WI) is
a high-quality, high-impact biennial conference series.
It will be jointly held with the Asia-Pacific Conference on 
Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT).

CONFERENCE SITE
===============

The WI'2001 and IAT'2001 will take place in Maebashi. Maebashi, the
capital of Gumma Prefecture, is called the `City of water, greenery,
and poetry'. Maebashi is an `International Convention City'
designated by the Ministry of Transportation.

Maebashi and the neighboring areas in Gunma is a land of greenery
blessed with the wonders of natural beauty and more than a hundred hot
springs offering relaxation and peace of mind. WI'2001 and IAT'2001
will organize a tour during the conference to a resort hotel with hot
spring in Ikaho that is one of the most famous hot springs areas in
Japan.

Maebashi is positioned nearly in the center of the Japan Archipelago.
Only a hundred kilometers from Japan's capital city of Tokyo and
reachable in an hour by bullet train or high-speed expressway, a
variety of favorable land conditions lead to flourishing economic
activity. Maebashi City and the neighboring areas in Gunma are
expected to further develop into an IT conurbation with highly
advanced information technology.
