First Call for Papers to the 2nd International Workshop on Intelligent
Systems for Agriculture Production and Environment Protection (ISAPEP’18)

- Paper submission deadline: 1st March 2018
- Notification of acceptance: 5th April 2018
- Camera Ready Deadline: 15th April 2018
- Workshop Date: 25th or 26th June 2018


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 fulfil 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 of 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 economic 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, telecommunications/informatics,
environmental sciences). In this context, the use of intelligent systems
will be paramount to understand, optimize and automate agricultural and
environmental processes.
This workshop will therefore focus on the use of intelligent systems to
overcome the issues related to the lack of productivity of farming systems
and environmental degradation. This will involve the integration of
solutions from different disciplines such as engineering,
telecommunications, mathematics/statistics and agricultural, environmental
and computer science. The workshop will represent an opportunity to debate
the state-of-the-art, cutting-edge challenges and the collaborations

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following ones:
- 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

All accepted papers will be published in an Open Access volume in the Book
Series on Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series (IOS Press).
The Workshops Proceedings published by this Book Series are indexed in the
Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S) by Thomson
Reuters. Previous editions were indexed by Scopus. We are also negotiating
a special issue in a relevant journal in this area for extended selected
papers (more information in the next CFP)

Authors wishing to participate in this event should format their papers
according to the IOS Press style, with a length of at least 6 but no more
than 10 pages. Latex and Word templates can be found in

See more details on the submission system in

All submitted papers will be submitted to a peer-review process by referees
with expertise in the area. This process will result in constructive
feedback to the authors and the selection of the best contributions to be
presented in the workshop and published in the proceedings.
