Proceedings of the International Scientific and Practical Conference “Digital agriculture - development strategy” (ISPC 2019)

The International Scientific and Practical Conference “Digitization of Agriculture - Development Strategy” (ISPC 2019) was held on 21-22 March 2019 in the city of Ekaterinburg, Russia. The conference was organized by the Ural State Agrarian University.

The purpose of the conference was the discussion of research results, conclusions and recommendations for the agriculture modernization in the high-tech industry with a wide use of artificial intelligence, automation and digital platforms.

The conference was attended by representatives of science institutes, agribusiness, public organizations, public authorities and local governments.

The conference collected 297 manuscripts in total, 123 of them were accepted by our reviewers (renowned international experts in the field of agriculture digitization). Submitted manuscripts were reviewed entirely by two reviewers for each manuscript, before they were selected for publication.

We would like to express our highest appreciation to the organizers, members of the program committees and reviewers of the ISPC 2019 for their hard work. It would be impossible to successfully manage ISPC 2019 and ensure high quality of the conference reports without their participation. Also, we would like to express our gratitude to an incredible number of authors for presenting their research results at the Conference. A special thanks goes to the Atlantis Press team. We hope to meet you all again at the upcoming conferences.
