INTRODUCTION

This symposium will highlight the recent advancements in robotics, high-throughput phenotyping, and precision and digital horticulture tools and technologies in the field conditions. The overall symposium aim is to support the development and the use of connected sensing and automation technologies (Internet of things/IOT, edge- and cloud-computing, app-based applications), robotics and automation, and artificial intelligence/AI tools for crop modelling, monitoring and management. We are interested in implementation of tools and technologies in all stages of horticultural crop production including plant breeding, pollination, production management, weed management, nursery production, harvest, and consumer acceptance. In addition to the technical symposium, we will host an international student challenge on an industry related topic.

The following topics will be developed during the symposium :

• Precision and digital horticulture technologies

• Mechanization, robotics and automation in horticulture

• Connected horticulture (IOT, mobile technologies and devices, app-based services, and management)

• Role of artificial intelligence and big data in connected horticulture

• High-throughput and open field use phenotyping systems

• Proximal and remote sensing tools

• Advances in crop modeling, weather forecasting, and decision support systems

• Socioeconomical impact of technology development and adoption

• Challenges in data mining and data security
