International Workshop on High Performance Computing
and Collaborative Networking for Real Time Agricultural Applications
CALL FOR PAPERS
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2012)
July 2 – July 6, 2012
Submission Deadline: March 26, 2012
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
This workshop is organized with a particular focus on international agriculture and computing systems. Consumers demand high quality fruit and vegetables, which are often grown and processed in distant countries. So, producers must be able to gather, store and transmit information as their food products pass from one county or company to another. At each stage of the value chain, from the plant to the plate, computing systems are essential for obtaining these goals.
The workshop is proposed to bring together people from industry, academia and government who are working to innovate, develop and use high performance computing, networking and IT infrastructure, for the purpose of collaborative work in the field of agriculture and applications. These may include agricultural information databases, agricultural development banking systems, providing vital information to the farmers about weather changes and watering schedules, planning farming crops efficiently, and support various processes involved in the food chain.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
On-line Control Systems for Food Processing
Real Time Collaborative Systems for Agricultural Applications
Image Processing for Fruit and Vegetable Selection
Food Safety, Traceability and Information Systems
Modeling of Agricultural Environments
Sensor Networks for Environmental Monitoring
Applications of Wireless and Sensor Networks in Agriculture
Soil and Plant Sensors
RFID Applications to Agriculture
Use of Mobile and Pervasive Devices in Agriculture
Mobile Systems for Agricultural Management
Web based Collaborative Applications for Agriculture
GIS Systems for Agriculture
Weather Forecasting & Modeling
Remote Sensing for Agriculture
Automation, Robotics and Auto-Guidance for Fruit and Vegetable Production
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to agricultural applications of computer modeling, simulation and real-time control. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2012.cisedu.info/home/posters for the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop paper submission site at …… Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, contributions, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizers.
