One day Workshop: Sensors and sensing technologies for effective land management: production agriculture and the environment

One day Workshop - Wednesday, 29th June 2016

(Sponsored by the NRN-LCEE Research Development Fund)

Sensors and sensing technologies for effective land management: production agriculture and the environment

Venue: Henfaes Research Centre (Farming Connect Innovation Site), Bangor University, Wales, LL33 0LB.

Goals: To share latest research, development and application of sensing technologies that promotes sustainable agricultural production, and generates dialogue between the inventors, researchers and users of sensing technologies to accelerate their application, and generate new collaborations.

Format: The Workshop will address the use of sensors and sensing technologies for effective land management via:  invited lectures in three themes (see confirmed speakers below), organised demonstrations of technologies during an extended lunch break; and a session to discuss innovative links in technologies. The workshop will start at 09:30 and end at 16:30.

 

An important component of the day is a long lunch hour where we will have organised demonstrations / pitches of sensors and software, including video clips. The date of the workshop is 29th June 2016, so there is time to set up any sensor demonstration in advance with the University farm machinery. If there is something you would like to demonstrate in this session, please contact Dave Chadwick d.chadwick@bangor.ac.uk

Places are limited, so please register for a place with Alison Evans (alison.evans@bangor.ac.uk) and we will confirm your participation as soon as we can
