[DMANET] Data Mining in Agriculture

3rd Workshop on Data Mining in Agriculture (DMA'2012)

--> co-hosted with ICDM'2012, July 20th, 2012, Berlin, Germany

Data mining, the art and science of intelligent analysis of (usually
large) data sets for meaningful (and previously unknown) insights, is
nowadays actively applied in a wide range of disciplines related to
agriculture. Due to the emerging importance of data mining techniques
and methodologies in the area of agriculture, this workshop aims to
bring together practitioners and researchers in this field. It creates a
community of people who are actively using data mining tools and
techniques and apply them to agriculture data.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for identifying
important contributions and opportunities for research on data mining
and agriculture.

Details about the workshop can be found at:

We invite original contributions related with both theoretical and
practical aspects of data mining and agriculture.
The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

- Data Analysis for Site-Specific Management
- Data Mining on Sensor and Spatial Data from Agricultural Applications
- Analysis of Remote Sensor Data
- Feature Selection on Agricultural Data
- Evaluation of Data Mining Experiments
- Spatial Autocorrelation in Agricultural Data
- Information Extraction from Species Databases
- Data-Based Approaches to Tackling Plant Diseases

Workshop papers will be published in the workshop proceedings by IBaI
publishing. PostScript or PDF paper submissions should be formatted
according to Springer LNCS format, with a maximum of 10 pages. Author's
instructions along with LaTeX and Word macro files are available on the
web at Springer.
Papers will be submitted via an on-line reviewing system. The reviewing
system can be found at
