Dear Colleagues,
The deadline for abstracts submission is only 9 days away, September 30th. This only requires a brief outline of your proposed paper (and presentation) but is important for the Organising Committee to plan for the full paper submissions.
Submission is open please submit your abstracts through the conference website. The timetable remains as follows; submit by 30th of September, assessed and decision communicated to submitting author by 26th October. Full papers (8 pages) are then required by 30th November and Poster summaries by 3rd May 2021.
In order to guarantee the academic quality of the proceedings, a scientific committee is being formed for the peer reviewing of oral communications. This committee is chaired by Dr. John V. Stafford (co-editor of the scientific journal Precision Agriculture) as the Editor of the 13th ECPA proceedings.
Please visit the following webpage for guidelines and abstract submission: https://ecpa2021.agroinform.hu/abstract-submission/
Please note the conference would encourage papers or abstracts on all aspects of precision agriculture related to any cropping system, from soil and crop sensing, to data management, information systems and spatial decision support systems. Abstracts related to educational activities and outcomes in precision agriculture are also strongly encouraged.
The present COVID-19 pandemic situation is a challenging time for everyone, however we hope all of you are still safe and healthy. We - the organizers - are still optimistic that 13th ECPA in 2021 will provide us the possibility to meet in person and have a fruitful conference concerning Precision Agriculture. Whatever the situation will be without submitting your abstracts the Organizing Committee can not make decision about inviting it for the full paper submission!
Again: at this moment the organizing commettee strongly believe that we can meet personally in Budapest, Hungary. 
African Conference on Precision Agriculture
AfCPA 2020 is now fully virtual! Hosted at Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P), the event’s main program of invited speakers will be live-streamed to registrants around the world, and to participants of the 14 satellite sites located across Africa.
AfCPA 2020 is building an enhanced virtual experience for all its registrants, exhibitors, and sponsors. As a fully digital event, AfCPA 2020 can maximize the inclusion of the global precision agriculture community, stimulate new ideas and partnerships, and strengthen the network needed to put precision agriculture in action in Africa.
This inaugural conference provides an opportunity for organizations to get involved early, share ideas, gain visibility, and expand their network.

If you have already registered to attend the conference at the host site, no need to worry. Our staff will be reaching out to you in the coming weeks regarding your registration!
