The International Conference on Digital Technologies for Sustainable Crop Production will take place on November 1-10, 2020.

DIGICROP 2020 is a scientific event addressing an international and interdisciplinary audience working at the intersection of engineering, robotics, computer science, crop sciences, agricultural sciences, phenotyping, and economics. It brings together researchers across disciplines that develop, propose, use, or evaluate new digital technologies with the goal of making central contributions to sustainability in the context of crop production, crop breeding, biodiversity, or our ecosystems.

DIGICROP will offer a mix of keynote presentations, invited video talks, and submitted video talks. The aim of the conference is to stimulate scientific discussions among the participants. The conference will take place online, consisting of pre-recorded video talks and live Q&A sessions. Talks will be available online from November 1 on. Live Q&A sessions for the talks will happen via an online conferencing tool on November 10 (in the daytime, CET). The whole event is free of charge for all participants and presenters.
