Call For Papers

Water is vital for ensuring food security to the world’s population, and agriculture is the biggest consumer. In order to address IoT based methods and approaches for smart water management in irrigation, EU and Brazil are funding SWAMP (Smart Water Management Platform), a research and innovation project of the Horizon 2020 Framework with pilots in Italy, Spain and Brazil. SWAMP partners organize this Workshop with the aim of bringing together people interested to discuss and enlighten the challenges, the opportunities and the long term ambitions of agriculture digitalization. IMSA18 is addressed to researchers and stakeholders of this multidisciplinary domain.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following subject areas:
• Platforms, tools and apps in smart agriculture
• Flying and ground sensors&actuators in smart agriculture
• Drones based monitoring and control in agriculture
• IoT based solutions for precision irrigation
• IoT based solutions for water distribution in agriculture
• Big-data based learning in agriculture
• Smart agriculture and climate change
• Business models for IoT in agriculture
• Challenges, opportunities and threads in smart agriculture

We welcome everybody to submit papers and take part in the workshop and share your research findings. Please take early registration to get the best fee and most advantages of your participation in the Workshop and the 23rd FRUCT conference. All workshop papers will be published Open Access in FRUCT proceeding at no additional cost (available for free under a CC BY-ND license download from FRUCT proceedings catalog).

You can select one of the following 3 types of submissions:

- Full papers (min 6 full pages and up to 12 pages), deadline September 14, 2018;
- Short papers (min 200 words, max 5 pages), deadline September 14, 2018;
- Poster or demo summary (min 200 words, max 5 pages), by October 29, 2018.

Please note that some papers submitted as Full Papers can be recommended for publication as Work in Progress. Work in Progress publications are publications of generally good quality, which unfortunately don't get into 43% top of the conference, but still deserve to be published, but just will get less guarateed indexing. To increase your chance to get your paper accepted as Full Paper, we recommend to submit it by the Early bird submission deadline, as this way you always will have a second chance to improve the paper and get another round of review.
