Workshop on Computer Science and Information Technologies for Agrifood (CSITA)
Decision making based on credible information and their thorough analysis plays an increasigly important role in today's food production processes, not only to protect the environment by using the input materials efficiently but also to achieve optimal and income-maximizing level of management.
The implementation of farm-to-fork farming technologies, promoted by the European Union, is possible only with the proper collection and processing of incoming data from, for example, sensors deployed in the production environment, data recorded in farm management and accounting systems, etc.
Data-driven Artificial Intelligence techniques play an important role in the environmentally and cost-effective optimization and implementation of food production. Food production to date, based solely on practical experience, is no longer sustainable.
Despite a wide range of existing solutions, new research and development activities are needed. It is a learning process for both computer scientists and agrifood actors, as well as experts and researchers. However, based on our experience, there is still a substantial gap between these actors and more common discussions are needed.
The goal of the workshop is to facilitate such discussion by inviting speakers from both fields of computer and agrifood sciences who are interested in research and practical collaborations in this interdisciplinary field.
The topics of the workshop include (but are not limited to) applications of
- Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
- IoT, Drones and Robots
- Blockchain Technologies and Security
- Optimization and Simulations
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Livestock farming
Also, papers and speakers introducing the critical points in applying computer science in agrifood are welcome.

Authors are requested to prepare a 2-column paper of 5-8 pages length, in English, according to the MS Word or LaTeX template. Papers should be submitted using the EasyChair system. Each submitted paper will be reviewed by 3 members of the program committee. The accepted papers will be published in ITAT proceedings, which will be made publicly available through the frequently accessed CEUR Workshop Proceedings publication service (ISSN 1613-0073).
Accepted papers will be presented in a 20 minute oral presentation. The presenting author should register for the workshop until 31st of July, 2020.
The registration fee for the ITAT conference covers participation, accommodation and full catering (from dinner to breakfast) at the conference hotel.
There are two variants of registration, a long (4 nights, from dinner to breakfast) and a short (2 nights, from dinner to breakfast, only for the duration of the workshop).
The on-line registration portal will be available later on the web site of the conference.
