[DMANET] Data Mining in Agriculture 2013

4th Workshop on Data Mining in Agriculture (DMA'2013)

----> co-hosted with ICDM'2013, July 19th, 2013, New York, USA

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.

Workshop's topics of interest include (but are 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 ten 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.
