CAPIGI 2020 | Digital Rights
Basics of data sharing

Dear CAPIGI member or CAPIGI follower,

We have been following the news and updates about the coronavirus COVID-19 very closely. And although the news is slowly becoming more positive and countries carefully loosening the regulations and measures, we think that July, September or October might be too early for a large CAPIGI event. As long as there is a limit at travelling and the social distancing remains this will be quite challenging.

Therefor we regret to inform you that we will postpone the CAPIGI conference to 2021. We hope that in the 1st or 2nd quarter of 2021 people are more free to travel and feel comfortable doing so.

However, we don't want to let CAPIGI completely pass us by this year! More information about this will follow soon!

Our team wishes you all the best for you and your loved ones and we hope to see you soon!


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.
