Call for Papers

AACC'19 brings together scholars, researchers, experts, and practitioners with a common interest in the interdisciplinary fields of ICT to share knowledge and novel approaches in the application of information and communications technologies to solutions that allow improving farming and agricultural production in climate change scenarios. Overall, these include decision support and early warning systems for agriculture, soil air and water quality models, Knowledge discovery and data mining, IoT and Smart Farming, ICT to Agricultural traceability and food safety, among others.

Submitted papers will be subject to stringent peer review by at least three experts and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Information about conference proceedings and publication of accepted paper is available here.

AACC'19 will have a master and doctoral symposium for the presentation of research work related to conference themes.

Manuscripts must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are recommended to seek the advice of a native English speaker, if possible, before submitting their manuscripts.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee, for originality, technical content, and relevance. The final acceptance will be based upon double-blind peer review of the full-length paper, and based on this the final decision will be to be considered either as Full or Short paper.

Six (6) of the accepted papers for oral presentation will be published in a Special Issue of the International Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Information Systems (IJAEIS), ISSN: 1947-3192, EISNN: 1947-3206, Indexed In Web of Science Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), SCOPUS, Compendex (Elsevier Engineering Index),

All full and short papers will be published in Revista Ingenierías Universidad de Medellín, ISSN (print): 1692-3324, ISSN (online): 2248-4094, Publindex B, or, Biotecnología en el Sector Agropecuario y Agroindustrial, ISSN 1692-3561,

Manuscripts should include a thorough literature review and adequate reference citations to support the arguments and methodology of the research study (manuscript should include approximately 25-30 references to assert a high level of rigor). All material that is paraphrased or quoted from another source is substantiated with an in-text reference citation. Manuscripts and references must strictly follow APA (American Psychological Association) style (The publisher may return manuscripts for revision to format the manuscript and references in APA style if formatting is not correctly applied.
