AMT 2013

In this great digital era, we are witnessing many rapid scientific and technological developments in human-centered and seamless computing environments, interfaces, devices, connections, computing resources, computing environments 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 1st International Conference on Active Media Technology (AMT01) 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. The 5th, 6th, and 7th International Conferences on Active Media Technology (AMT09, AMT10, AMT11) were jointly held with International Conferences on Brain Informatics (BI09, BI10, BI11), respectively, in Beijing China, Toronto Canada, and Lanzhou China. The 8th International Conferences on Active Media Technology (AMT12) was held jointly with other international conferences (BI2, WI12, IAT12, and ISMIS12) in Macau, China. Following the success of AMT01, AMT04, AMT05, AMT06, AMT09, AMT10, AMT11,and AMT12, Active Media Technology 2013 (AMT13) will be jointly held with the 2013 International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI 2013). 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.
