The Second National Symposium on Horticultural Engineering

Automation and ICTs open a wide range of possibilities in agricultural R+D+i, which allows a number of topics that can transmit experience to be presented, without forgetting the horticultural aspects of engineering.

The Horticultural Engineering Section of the Spanish Society for Horticultural Science (SECH), Cajamar, and the University of Almeria are putting the final touch to the organization of the Second National Symposium on Horticultural Engineering, devoted to automation and ICT in agriculture. This event has the support of the Science and Technology Park of Almeria (PITA), together with other institutions and companies with national and international relevance.

The event will take place on 10, 11 and 12 of February 2016 in Almeria, and it will be a meeting point for researchers from different Spanish universities and research groups working in this sector, and a large number of companies and professionals related to this field.

Automation and ICTs open a wide range of possibilities in agricultural R+D+i, which allows a number of topics that can transmit experience to be presented, without forgetting the horticultural aspects of engineering.

The main novelty of this edition will be the sharing of research projects, and in addition, a round table will be held with companies and institutions related to the topic of the symposium. There will be technical training workshops, as well as a visit to display the application of automation and ICT to productive agriculture in greenhouses.
