AgrApps 2013 - International Workshop on High Performance Computing and Collaborative Networking for Real Time Agricultural Applications (AgrApps2013)

Date2013-07-01 - 2013-07-05


VenueHelsinki, Finland Finland



Topics/Call fo Papers

This workshop is organized with a particular focus on international agriculture and computing systems. Consumers demand high quality fruit and vegetables, which are often grown and processed in distant countries. So, producers must be able to gather, store and transmit information as their food products pass from one county or company to another. At each stage of the value chain, from the plant to the plate, computing systems are essential for obtaining these goals.
The workshop is proposed to bring together people from industry, academia and government who are working to innovate, develop and use high performance computing, networking and IT infrastructure, for the purpose of collaborative work in the field of agriculture and applications. These may include agricultural information databases, agricultural development banking systems, providing vital information to the farmers about weather changes and watering schedules, planning farming crops efficiently, and support various processes involved in the food chain.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
On-line Control Systems for Food Processing
Real Time Collaborative Systems for Agricultural Applications
Image Processing for Fruit and Vegetable Selection
Food Safety, Traceability and Information Systems
Modeling of Agricultural Environments
Sensor Networks for Environmental Monitoring
Applications of Wireless and Sensor Networks in Agriculture
Soil and Plant Sensors
RFID Applications to Agriculture
Use of Mobile and Pervasive Devices in Agriculture
Mobile Systems for Agricultural Management
Web based Collaborative Applications for Agriculture
Precision Agriculture
GIS Systems for Agriculture
Weather Forecasting & Modeling
Remote Sensing for Agriculture
Automation, Robotics and Auto-Guidance for Fruit and Vegetable Production
