Special AMT-BHI 2013 Joint Keynote:
Yuichiro Anzai
President, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science

Keynote Speakers:
Yuzuru Tanaka, Hokkaido University, Japan
Carl K. Chang, Iowa State University, USA

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.

AMT'13 aims at providing a leading international forum to bring
together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields, to
increase the cross-fertilization of ideas and explore the fundamental
roles, interactions as well as practical impacts of intelligent
information technology and computer science on the next generation of
computing environments, systems and media. AMT will feature
high-quality, original research papers in all theoretical, technical,
practical, and interdisciplinary studies that make up the field of
active media technology.

The 1st International Conference on Active Media Technology (AM'01)
was held in Hong Kong in 2001, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th International
Conferences on Active Media Technology (AMT04, AMT05, AMT06) were 
held respectively, in Chongqing China, Kagawa Japan, and Brisbane
Australia, and the 5th, 6th, and 7th International Conferences on
Active Media Technology (AMT'09, AMT'10, AMT'11) were jointly held with
International Conferences on Brain Informatics (BI09, BI10, BI11),
respectively, in Beijing China, Toronto Canada, and Lanzhou China.
Active Media Technology 2012 (AMT12) was held under the 2012 World
Intelligence Congress, jointly with  other four international
conferences (BI12, WI-IAT12 and ISMIS12) in 2012. 
Following the success of AMT01, AMT04, AMT05, AMT06, AMT09, AMT10,
AMT11 and AMT12, Active Media Technology 2013 (AMT'13) will be held
in Maebashi, Japan, October 29-31, 2013.

Active Media Technology 2013 will be jointly held with the 2013
International Conference on Brain and Health Informatics (BHI'13).  
The two conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and
banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can
attend sessions, exhibits and demonstrations across the
two conferences.

On-Line Submissions and Publication
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

There are 2 types of Paper Submissions and Publication,
which you can choose one of them:

Type I of Submissions and Publication: Full Paper Submissions:
--------------------------------------------------------------

High-quality papers in all AMT related areas are solicited. Papers
exploring new directions will receive a careful and supportive
review. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of
technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.

The proceeding of the conference will be published by Springer as a
volume of the series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture
Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI).  Extensions of selected
papers from the proceedings will be considered for publication in
special issues of international journals.

Authors are strongly encouraged to use Springer LNCS/LNAI manuscript
submission guidelines (available at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) for their initial
submissions (a maximum of 12 pages in Springer LNCS/LNAI style file).
All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only, using
the conference management tool.

Type II of Submissions and Publication: Abstract Submissions:
-------------------------------------------------------------

Accepted abstract submissions will be included in the conference
program.  Selected abstract submissions will be considered for
publication in special issues of international journals after their
abstracts are extended to a full-length paper and pass a peer review
process.

We will also have poster, demonstration, and late breaking result
paper sessions.

Detailed instructions and a paper submission form can be found 
from the AMT'13 Web page at http://wi-consortium.org/conferences/amtbi13/
