In the great digital era, we are witnessing many rapid scientific and
technological developments in human-centred, seamless computing environments,
interfaces, devices, and systems with applications ranging from business and
communication to entertainment and learning. These developments are
collectively best characterized as Active Media Technology (AMT), a new area
of intelligent information technology and computer science that emphasizes the
proactive, seamless roles of interfaces and systems as well as new media in
all aspects of digital life. An AMT based system offers services to enable the
rapid design, implementation and support of customized solutions.

The first International Conference on Active Media Technology
(AMT01) was held in Hong Kong in 2001, the second International
Conference on Active Media Technology (AMT04) was held in Chongqing,
China in May 29-31 of 2004, the third International Conference on
Active Media Technology (AMT05) was held in Kagawa, Japan in May
2005, and the fourth International Conference on Active Media
Technology (AMT06) was held in Brisbane, Australia in June 7-9,
2006. Following the success of AMT01, AMT04, AMT05 and AMT06, the
Fifth International Conference on Active Media Technology (AMT09)
will be held in Beijing, China in October 22-24, 2009.

Active Media Technology 2009 will be jointly held with the 2009
International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI 2009).  The two
conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and
banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can
attend workshops, sessions, exhibits and demonstrations across the two
conferences.
