Sixth International Workshop on Machine Learning for Cyber-Agricultural Systems (MLCAS 2024)

We are pleased to invite you to the Sixth International Workshop on Machine Learning for Cyber-Agricultural Systems (MLCAS 2024, https://2024.mlcas.site/) that will be co-located with 8th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium (IPPS8, https://www.plant-phenotyping.org/ipps8) at the Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln, Nebraska on Monday October 7, 2024. The workshop will feature invited talks, oral/poster presentations of contributed papers, and an Ag-ML competition.


The theme of MLCAS 2024 will be "User-centric AI applications in Agriculture" to highlight and discuss real life deployments of AI and ML-enabled tools for a variety of agricultural decision support applications relevant for diverse stakeholders including farmers, plant breeders and plant scientists. 


We invite extended 2-page-abstract for oral and/or poster presentations on topics Including but not limited to machine learning applications to field-scale plant phenotyping (e.g., trait extraction), plant pathology (e.g., disease, pest, and weed scouting), plant breeding (e.g., yield prediction) and enabling smart farm management practices. We particularly encourage applications of recent AI advances such as multi-modal generative models, large language models (LLM), 3D geometric deep learning, scientific machine learning, deep reinforcement learning, robotic perception and learning-enabled control, uncertainty quantification and robust machine learning, in enabling and accelerating research in plant science and agriculture. We also encourage work that results in creating annotated benchmark datasets for ML in agriculture.
