Dear Fellow Precision Agriculturist,


A reminder that the abstract submission period is already open and that the deadline for oral presentations is October 2019. The abstract is only a brief outline of the proposed presentation (between 2 000 and 2 500 characters including spaces) but it is important for the Organising Committee to plan for full paper submissions and the conference. Full details on abstract submission are available on the website (and in earlier newsletters).

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 Stafford (co-editor of the scientific journal Precision Agriculture) as the Editor of the 12th ECPA proceedings.

Poster communications will follow a different process and will be reviewed by the Organising Committee. Poster abstract submission is also now open and will remain so until May next year.


We will be pleased to present a trip to the Mas Numérique during the technical tour on Wednesday, July 10, 2019. Launched in October 2017 at the Domaine du Chapitre of Montpellier SupAgro in Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone, the Mas Numérique is a unique project in the world in regards to its approach and its objectives in supporting Precision and Digital Agriculture. It is a Mediterranean farm that serves as a platform for the application and integration of commercialized digital agriculture services. It exists to highlight the reality of a ‘connected agriculture’ and to support teaching, extension and industry development.

You can now visit the Mas Digital via the virtual tour or learn more about the project with this short video.

Have a good summer and see you soon!
