Call For Papers

Second Call for Papers to the 1st International Workshop on Intelligent Systems for Agriculture Production and Environment Protection (ISAPEP’17)
Co-located event in Intelligent Environments 2017

Paper submission deadline: 24th April 2017
Notification of acceptance: 15th May 2017
Final Version Submission: 22th May 2017
Workshop Date: 21st or 22nd August 2017


Two of the most important worldwide challenges we need to face are to increase food production and protect the environment against factors such as climate change and environmental degradation. This requires the development of optimum environmental management strategies supported by the access to better information on environmental media condition (e.g., soils, waters, sediments, wastes). In order to fulfil this requirement, there is a need to increase the spatial density of environmental media data to ensure their right characterisation in a timely manner. This demand is enhanced by the fact that environmental media are highly heterogeneous and diverse temporally. Due to the high cost and time of traditional laboratory analysis, environmental sampling is often restricted. This increases the possibility of having undetected contamination and poor environmental media characterisation leading to environmental degradation and reducing the profitability of economic activities (e.g., agriculture). Intelligent systems represent alternative analysis tools by providing cost effective, rapid and real time measurement of environmental media, resulting in a new era for their characterisation and assessment. The development of this field offers an exciting opportunity for science advance and commercial application to capture the benefits of new technologies to assist the management of global environmental and economical problems. This development has applications in a wide range of areas (e.g., mining, contamination, agriculture, industrial processes) and requires the input of a number of disciplines (e.g., mathematics/statistics, telecommunications/informatics, environmental sciences). In this context, the use of intelligent systems will be paramount to understand, optimize and automate agricultural and environmental processes.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following ones:
Agriculture Information Technologies
Smart farming
Precision agriculture
Environmental degradation assessment and rehabilitation
Environmental monitoring
Linking environmental characterisation and broad management
Intelligent forecasting applications
Intelligent applications for ecological disaster management
Intelligent waste management
Sensor development
Multi sensor and data fusion

All accepted papers will be published in an Open Access volume in the Book Series on Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series (IOS Press). The Workshops Proceedings published by this Book Series are indexed in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S) by Thomson Reuters. Previous editions were indexed by Scopus.

Organizers will select high quality papers and invite the authors to submit a substantially extended version of their papers for possible consideration in Biosystems Engineering (IF: 1.997). See more details at

Authors wishing to participate in this event should format their papers according to the IOS Press style, with a length of at least 6 but no more than 10 pages. Latex and Word templates can be found in
The submission system for this workshop is based on EasyChair. Papers must be submitted through Information on the registration process can be found at
All submitted papers will be submitted to a peer-review process by referees with expertise in the area. This process will result in constructive feedback to the authors and the selection of the best contributions to be presented in the workshop and published in the proceedings.
