*Agriculture and Environment Perspectives in Intelligent Systems*

Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments, IOS Press Book Series

Andrés Muñoz -- Universidad Católica de Murcia, Spain
Jaehwa Park -- Chung Ang University, Korea

Two of the most important worldwide challenges we need to face are to
increase food production and protect the environment against factors such
as climate change and environmental degradation. This requires the
development of optimum environmental management strategies supported by the
access to better information on environmental media condition (e.g., soils,
waters, sediments, wastes). In order to fulfill this requirement, there is
a need to increase the spatial density of environmental media data to
ensure their right characterisation in a timely manner. This demand is
enhanced by the fact that environmental media are highly heterogeneous and
diverse temporally. Due to the high cost and time of traditional laboratory
analysis, environmental sampling is often restricted. This increases the
possibility of having undetected contamination and poor environmental media
characterisation leading to environmental degradation and reducing the
profitability or economic activities (e.g., agriculture). Intelligent
systems represent alternative analysis tools by providing cost effective,
rapid and real time measurement of environmental media, resulting in a new
era for their characterisation and assessment. The development of this
field offers an exciting opportunity for science advance and commercial
application to capture the benefits of new technologies to assist the
management of global environmental and economical problems. This
development has applications in a wide range of areas (e.g., mining,
contamination, agriculture, industrial processes) and requires the input of
a number of disciplines (e.g., mathematics/statistics,
environmental sciences). In this context, the use of intelligent systems
will be paramount to understand, optimize and automate agricultural and
environmental processes.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
•       Agriculture Information Technologies
• Smart farming
• Precision agriculture
• Environmental degradation assessment and rehabilitation
• Environmental monitoring
• Linking environmental characterisation and broad management
• Intelligent forecasting applications
• Intelligent applications for ecological disaster management
• Intelligent waste management
• Sensor development
• Multi sensor and data fusion
• Big Data applied to agriculture and enviromental problems

*Instructions for Authors*
Authors may submit novel contributions of a minimum of 20 pages. All papers
will be reviewed against the standard criteria of relevance, originality,
significance, clarity and soundness, and are expected to meet high quality
standards. Contributions may not be submitted to other conferences or
journals during the reviewing period nor they may be already under review
or published in other conferences or journals.

All submissions will be made electronically, through the EasyChair
conference system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aepis18
Submitted PDF papers should follow the IOS Press author kit instructions
for formatting:

*Information on book series “Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments”*
Ambient Intelligence (AmI) and Smart Environments (SmE) are two mutually
complementary areas which are growing fast as multi-disciplinary fields
with a huge potential to benefit society. A Smart Environment is a place
that has been enriched with technology (sensors, processors, actuators,
information terminals, and other devices interconnected through a network)
to enhance the services that can provide to humans. The most widely
realization of this idea are “Smart Homes” but equally hospitals, cars,
classrooms, offices, streets and other places are being considered. Ambient
Intelligence enhances the global behaviour of such a system by providing
high level functionality which provides an added value to the typical
services expected in a specific environment. Usually an analysis is
performed in real-time over the events that are recorded within the smart
environment which allows a timely interaction with the inhabitants of the
environment to provide a service. Volumes in this series are accepted in
Clarivate's Conference Proceedings Citation Index, a Web of Science®
