A three-day workshop with podium presentations delivered mainly by keynote and invited speakers who are leading experts in the relevant fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Precision Agriculture (PA), with additional selected voluntary presentations . Roundtable discussion sessions will follow on the topic of AI in PA. 

The workshop will be held for three days from July 18-20, 2023, which will include two days of scientific lectures and discussions at Ben Gurion University in the Negev (BGU), located in Beer Sheva, and one day for a professional tour at the Model Farm at Newe Ya'ar, run by the Agricultural Research Organization (ARO), located in the northern part of Israel.  It will focus on PA development in Israel and different states in the USA with similar agriculture enterprises and agriculture-driven economies. The desired outcomes of the proposed workshop are:

  • Exchange of information and expertise among the workshop participants.
  • Inclusion of advanced graduate students and postdocs as part of their training and career development.
  • Establishment of a network of USA and Israel-based PA experts that will encourage research collaborations that will accelerate PA development through coordination and exchange of information through follow-up activities (e.g., satellite meetings, targeted workshops, group websites, social media, etc.)
  • Publication of a synthesis/review paper or joint research proposal based on workshop discussions and activity outcomes.

Location: All Sessions will take place at the Ben Gurion University Campus in the W.A. Minkoff Senate Building (71A).
