Scope and Topics

This workshop welcomes paper submissions on topics encompassing data collection, data analytics, biophysical modeling, big data utilization, as well as machine learning and deep learning techniques applied across various facets within the agricultural sector. These may include, but are not restricted to, crop management, crop field sensing, crop yield prediction, and crop disease detection and management. Particular topics of interest include:
  • Data collection, pre-processing, and analytics in agriculture
  • Big Data in Agriculture
  • Machine learning and deep learning in agriculture
  • Data analytic applications in agriculture include but are not limited to crop yield prediction, field/crop sensing, crop management, and energy control/optimization in the agriculture scenario
  • Publication

    All speakers will be invited to submit an article to a Special Issue organized by the Cognitive Computation journal (Springer-Nature)

    Paper Submission

    Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

    1. Regular papers should be up to 12-20 pages in length.
    2. Short papers should be 6-11 pages in length.

    All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
