2010 International Conference on Active Media Technology (AMT 2010)
2010 International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI 2010)

August 28-30, 2010, York University, Toronto, Canada

Homepage: http://www.wici-lab.org/amtbi10
Mirror page: http://www.yorku.ca/amtbi10

Co-organized by IEEE Task Force on Brain Informatics (IEEE TF-BI)
                Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC)
Co-sponsored by York University, Toronto, Canada
                Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science

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

You are invited to join Active Media Technology 2010 and
Brain Informatics 2010.

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 and sessions across the two conferences.
