Apologies for multiple postings.
HALF-DAY WORKSHOP at IEEE ICRA 2008 on:
Towards Autonomous Agriculture of Tomorrow
Monday, 19 May 2008
Submissions are sought for the workshop in the form of interesting
applications of robotic techniques to the area of agricultural
robotics and automation. Field experimentation results as well as
conceptual ideas with potential to define the future of agricultural
automation are of great interest. Perspective from agricultural experts
on robotics and automation is also of great interest, especially as ICRA
is well attended by robotics research community.
To submit, please contact the organisers with an extended abstract no more
than 2 pages long, before the deadline of Jan 31 2008.

May 19, 2008: Workshop (ICRA 2008)
Automation is one of the most important reasons in the improvement of
farming efficiency. At present time, the maturing technologies in the
robotics community pave the way for the very exciting deployments of
robust robotics systems in the semi-structured environments of large
scale farming. This potentially increases the productivity and the
quality of agricultural facilities. It also potentially alters the way
farming industry is modelled and carried out in a drastic manner. The
futuristic vision of the emerging trend in autonomous farming is
discussed in this workshop, critically explored through the presentation
of the state-of-the-art technologies available today. Examples of
robust implementation on robotics technologies on the semi-structured
farming tasks will be presented by the panel of speakers.
