Monitor and manage sanitary risks, study climate change, environmental impacts in connexion with agricultural practices (the use of pesticides, for example), mapping the good ecological status of rivers, simulate spread of forest fires … are environmental and agricultural challenges for which Information and Decision Support Systems represent effective solutions. New theoretical and technical challenges emerge from the integration of several scientific domains such as agronomy, mathematics, information technology and computer science. The objective of the proposed workshop is to show how the latest advances in research in information and decision-support systems can be applied to environmental and agricultural matters.

All papers accepted to the Workshops will be included in a Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume.
The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version to International Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Information Systems!
Each paper will be independently reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Their individual scores will be evaluated by a small sub-committee and result in one of the following final decisions: accepted, or accepted on the condition that suggestions for improvement will be incorporated, or rejected. Notification of this decision will be sent to authors.
Each paper must be original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere (copyright problems fall entirely under responsibility of the authors).
To submit a paper, authors must :
- Authenticate/Register into the Electronic Submission System
- Submit an abstract
- Submit the paper in LNCS format
After receiving the notification of acceptance, the authors of accepted papers will be ask to complete the final Submission of their paper. The authors have to upload in the Electronic Submission System the Camera Ready version of the accepted paper, the related source files and the signed Copyright Transfer form.
