AI in Agriculture

(AgriAI)

Belgrade, Serbia, 8–11 September, 2024

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly used in agriculture for a variety of uses, from plant disease detection to weeding automation, soil status monitoring, crop prediction, irrigation management, and decreased use of resources for improving quality and productivity. This Thematic Track welcomes contributions related to a wide variety of interdisciplinary research and applications related to artificial intelligence in agriculture. AI can, in fact, provide highly positive effects on precision agriculture by optimizing, automating and forecasting several aspects of farming and revolutionizing the sector, providing helpful information and driving decisions using multiple sources of data and different sensors.

Moreover, in the climate change era, AI can improve sustainability by optimizing the use of resources such as water and soil management. We welcome innovative contributions, early results and position papers addressing one or more of the topics listed below and intend to foster informal discussions and bring together researchers, practitioners and industry experts to explore the challenges and opportunities of AI and Agriculture. We look forward to receiving your submissions and seeing you at the workshop!
