Call for Papers
1st International Conference on Agro Big Data and Decision Support
Systems in Agriculture
September 27-29 2017, Montevideo, Uruguay

The BigDSSAgro conference is devoted to decision support systems in
agriculture, which combine models, databases and algorithms to support
many real-world decision-making problems.

The access to cheap sensor technology, drones, climate data and
forecasts, satellite information about soils, humidity and more is
provoking a revolution with the irruption of Big Data and opening the
door to the development and application of novel optimization and
simulation models in Agriculture and the Agri-food industries.
The main question to solve is how to transform the huge amount of data
into useful information to decision-makers. Current applications cover
a wide range of different areas, from food production or animal
welfare to sustainability or climate change impact; and they are
expected to still increase in future. The scope of the conference
includes findings on established and new Operational Research, Big
Data and Analytics methods in effective decision-making applications
in Agriculture and in the Agri-food industry, including their supply
chain, and also problems in Forestry and in Environment studies.

Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:

• Operational Research methods relevant to agriculture, forestry and
• Sustainability indicators in agriculture and environment
• Modelling sensor based data to get useful information
• Big Data techniques with potential applications in agriculture
• Optimization and simulation models, including agent based simulation
• Decision support tools based on Big Data and Operational Research techniques
• Decision support tools based on GIS and their implications with Big Data
• Economic aspects of adoption of Big Data analytics

Applications of the above mentioned methods in the following settings:
• Smart farms, sensing applications in agriculture
• Precision agriculture, digital agriculture
• Industrial agriculture
• Small scale farming
• Agri-business supply chain
• Forestry
• Land Use
• Environment studies and environmental protection

BigDSSAgro 2017 will be held September 27-29 2017, Montevideo, Uruguay.
