Basics of data sharing

Dear CAPIGI member or CAPIGI follower,

Because of the spreading of the Corona Virus COVID-19 and our care for the health of all attendants to our conference, we decided to postpone the Capigi Conference. The chances of having a conference in May 2020 do not seem realistic. Therefore we have an alternative date scheduled on 9-10 July 2020. As we don’t know how the situation will develop this might still be too optimistic, we are also investigating the options to organise the conference in September or October this year.

We regret having to make this decision of postponing the conference, however the safety of our sponsors, members, speakers, followers and our staff comes first. We will keep you updated about new dates and we hope to welcome you soon at the CAPIGI conference in Dublin!

Our team wishes you all the best for you and your loved ones.

About the theme

Digital Rights | Basics of data sharing

Technology is making remarkable progress and in particular the uptake and use of spatial data in smart farming leads to new businesses and new business models. Data methods and technologies (e.g. sensors, satellites, data analytics, Big Data technologies, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, automation and robotics) offer much potential to address the challenges agriculture is facing today. The value of data is very much in sharing, integrating and interpreting it. Unlocking this potential of data is a huge challenge because issues like access, usability, reliability and transparency of data (-collection) are hampering the uptake of data technologies.

About the programme

CAPIGI wants to offer more than regular conferences. Interaction: this is an important principle for CAPIGI. In order to achieve this, not only the usual elements of conferences will be offers, such as plenary sessions, workshops, and keynote speakers, but CAPIGI will especially focus on the use of interactional components:
Social lunches will be offered in order to stimulate networking. During all breaks the exhibition will be open for participants to have a chat with a variety of companies active in the sector. With different tools, services or products they will present their organisation and inform the participants. Simultaneously to the CAPIGI conference a hackathon will be organised at the same venue. Talented teams will compete on a challenge to use the vast amount of (open) data including satellite data, soil data, crop data and other relevant registries to solve a real life problem. 


In less than three weeks the CAPIGI conference will start.
Don't forget to register. The CAPIGI team is looking forward to meet you there!

Geospatial data improves the performance of agriculture

CAPIGI 2018 focusses on Performance Agriculture: a new paradigm in farming where economic benefits are matched by environmental and climate benefits. 

CAPIGI | Corona/COVID-19 update

The situation around the spread of the corona virus COVID-19 is unfortunately worsening. The chances of having a conference in May 2020 seems therefore extremely low ....
