for students and poster session presenters 
************************************************

You are invited to join Active Media Technology 2009 and Brain
Informatics 2009.

Active Media Technology is 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.

Brain Informatics has recently emerged as an interdisciplinary
research field that focuses on studying the mechanisms underlying the
human information processing system (HIPS).  BI lies in the interplay
between the studies of human brain and the research of informatics.

The two conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and
banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can
attend keynotes, sessions, workshop, posters across the two conferences.

============================
***** Call for Posters *****
============================

AMT-BI'09 also welcomes Posters submissions.  
AMT-BI'09 Posters session will provide researchers and practitioners
in active media technology and brain informatics an exciting and
highly interactive way to explore new ideas and results.
All areas of the AMT/BI conference are of interest to the Posters and Demos.

The proposal of a poster must include the following information:

- Authors (name, affiliation, email, address, phone and fax)
- The corresponding author with her/his email address
- Title
- Keywords
- The category of the submission (AMT or BI) 

The proposals of posters must be submitted online at the conference websites.
The deadline for proposals submission is *** 30 September 2009 ***.

Special discount (or free) registration is available
for students and poster session presenters
