Agricultural production is challenged by world food demand, the need to reduce agriculture's environmental footprint, the shortage of labor, and unprecedented variations in weather patterns. These stressors are accelerating the pace of innovation in automation and robotic systems which have benefited from the advancements made in machine vision, sensors and actuators, artificial intelligence (AI), and human-robot interactions. This symposium will provide a space where academia, industry, funding agencies, and other stakeholders can exchange knowledge on emerging trends and identify challenges along with opportunities in the fields of automation and robotics in agriculture. The symposium will be held on Monday, 22 July 2024 in Manhattan, KS, USA, in conjunction with the 16th International Conference on Precision Agriculture.   Registrants of the 16th International Conference on Precision Agriculture can add a registration to the symposium to their order at no addition cost.

With the São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Precision Livestock Farming (SPSAS-PLF), we intend to make a qualitative leap in PLF research. By bringing together worldwide known scientists, we seek to inspire graduate students and young scientists to explore various aspects of PLF research in-depth. The goal of this program is to foster great interest in PLF research, empowering young scientists to play a global role in advancing science and bridging the gap between fundamental and applied research in PLF. During the School, short courses and workshops about machine learning, statistical tools, and database systems will be delivered. Program applications will be accepted through 10 February 2024.
