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, the fourth International Conference on Active Media
Technology (AMT06) was held in Brisbane, Australia in June 7-9,
2006, and the fifth International Conference on Active Media
Technology (AMT09) was jointly held with the 2009
International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI 2009).
Following the success of AMT01, AMT04, AMT05, AMT06 and AMT09,
the Sixth International Conference on Active Media Technology
(AMT10) will be held in Toronto, Canada from August 28-30, 2010.

Active Media Technology 2010 will be jointly held with the 2010
International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI 2010). 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.
