The public conference provides a unique opportunity to discuss the emerging ICT and geo-information business in agriculture. The organising groups are part of the EU-funded projects Future Farm, agriXChange and the CAPIGI-network.
Internationally renowned speakers give state-of-the-art insight into relevant aspects of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for the agribusiness throughout plenary sessions. Researchers, developers and users will present novel solutions, recent discussions and new concepts on how to manage production information and geo-information in agriculture and the related value added chain of production. In addition, separate paper sessions, workshops, poster sessions and exhibitions address more specific topics such as:Farm Management Information Systems
About 150 participants are expected from all over the world. The conference brings together industry (software companies, machine manufacturers, system developers) as well as scientists and government active in both (geo-)information management and agriculture administration that share interests in the environment.
The pressing issues and demands for Information and Communication Technologies in agriculture will be summarized by the delegates during the conference in the ‘Cologne declaration on Information Exchange and ICT in European Agriculture’. This appeal is addressed towards politics, research, industry and funding.
During a press background talk the media have the chance to get answers to their questions in this pressing field of modern agriculture from the organizers, relevant delegates and politicians of the conference (Friday, 26th Nov. 13:30 until 14:30, Holiday Inn, Cologne).
The key issue of the EU-funded project FutureFarm (http://www.futurefarm.eu) is to analyse future demands of farms towards their information management. Based on these results the researchers developed a concept for a new Farm Information Management Systems (FMIS) which will help to improve communication, crop management and documentation. Standards from cross compliance, regional regulations or from buyers can automatically be implemented in the FMIS and its application in the daily planning and management of information on farm. Data intensive technologies such as Precision Farming and robotics provide a wealth of information and are specifically considered. [Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org]
The overall objective of the EU-funded project agriXchange (http://www.agrixchange.eu) is to coordinate and support the setting up of sustainable network for developing a system for common data exchange in agriculture. This will be achieved by (i) establishing a platform on data exchange in agriculture in the EU, (ii) developing a reference framework for interoperability of data exchange, (iii) identifying the main challenges for harmonizing data exchange.

The CAPIGI-network (http://www.capigi.eu) brings together governments, industry and research to discuss the impact of geo-information in implementing agricultural politics. During this joint conference CAPIGI presents a workshop about the enabling role of geo-information (satellite data, soil sampling, crop monitoring, machine guidance, variable rate applications et cetera) in information management, both on-farm and in information chains. This CAPIGI workshop will present a state-of-the-art overview on innovations and research in geo-information sciences. These emerging technologies get illustrated with practice experiences and benefits in agricultural policy implementation. [Contact: email@example.com]Contact:

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
