NJF seminar 441
Automation and System Technology in Plant Production
CIGR section V & NJF section VII conference
30 June - 2 July 2011 Denmark
Developments in automation and systems technology for dynamic systems that interact with natural and biological objects are the focus area of this conference.

The goal is to present research that will benefit the development of technology and production systems that reduce environmental impact, increase precision and efficiency, and allow care and management of crops and animals in new and sustainable ways. Particular topics include robotics, sensor systems, implement technology, operations management and systems assessment.

The conference will be held parallel to the Field Robotic Event 2011 and the National Agricultural Show 2011 in Herning.

Two PhD courses will be held from the 20th of June to the 3rd of July parallel to the conference. The courses are:
-Operations management in bio-production (Remaining seats: 9)
-Machine vision for crop and weed species recognition (Remaining seats: 12)
