The International Society of Precision Agriculture (ISPA) is pleased to announce the 12th International Conference on Precision Agriculture (ICPA) to be held at the Hyatt Regency in Sacramento, California, USA from July 20-23, 2014.
Precision agriculture techniques, technologies and their applications are now ‘mainstream agriculture’ and can certainly help towards solving the problems and challenges that face agricultural production worldwide. Following the success of the 11th Conference which attracted 450 delegates from 37 countries, we are confident that the 12th Conference will be a great success, complementing its sister conferences, ECPA and ACPA. Look out for full details on the ISPA web site and start preparing to submit abstracts for papers or posters.
As with previous conferences, oral and poster sessions will report much current research in PA, application of research will be highlighted in practitioner ‘A to Z’ sessions and the latest technologies will be on show in the commercial exhibition. Overarching all that, there will be extensive networking opportunities leading, hopefully, to collaboration in research and international research proposals. Situated in the heart of California agriculture, field trips will be organised by the University of California, Davis campus to view the latest research and application of PA.
The “P.C. Robert Young and Senior Scientist Awards” will be awarded at the 12th Conference. In addition, several awards will be made in the graduate student category to recognize their work and encourage participation in ICPA.
