Call for papers – 39th GIL Annual Meeting
The 39th GIL Annual Meeting „Digitalization for farms in small-scale regions - a contradiction in terms?“ under the responsibility of the german society of "Informatik in der Landwirtschaft- GIL" will take place from February 18 to 19, 2019, at BOKU, Vienna.
Digitalization is currently one of the hottest trends in agriculture. Open questions focus on the effects of digitalization and the acceptance of digital technologies in agriculture. Digital innovations shall ultimately lead e.g., through transparency and traceability to a higher level of social acceptance of agricultural production. This raises the question to develop sustainable concepts, especially in regions of small and medium sized farms to get an added value of digital technologies and to accelerate their development.
Abstract submission deadline: August 31, 2018.
