We are pleased to announce that The 13th Asian-Pacific Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture 2020 – APFITA 2020: “Promoting Smart Technologies for Sustainable Agriculture” will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam, from November 26-28, 2020. This international conference is organized by VNU-UET, APFITA, MARD,  VIDA, and CIAT.

A series of International Conference on APFITA has been successfully organized since 1998 in many countries such as Japan, Indian, Taichung, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand… to exploit the potential of Information and Communication Technology to improve the efficiency of production in agriculture.

APFITA 2020 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, government agencies and key actors from the private sector from all over the world to exchange and share the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions in almost all areas of IT for Agriculture through scientific presentations in plenary and parallel sessions. 

We propose an ambitious agenda built upon three main events:

The digital discovery forum, an exhibition of state of the art research results and advanced technologies will present to the participants the applications of smart technologies in agriculture that will shape the digital agri-food landscape of tomorrow.

The business-matching forum will be organized to facilitate technology transfer from developers to applicators within the Asia Pacific region and from the world to the region. APFITA 2020 invites organization and companies to demonstrate outstanding technologies that have a high impact on agriculture production.

The policy vision forum, will be organize to give a space to highly positioned policymakers from government and ministries and representatives from countries with highly developed agriculture to share and discuss policies to promote the development, application, and dissemination of Digital Agriculture in Asia-Pacific

On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to share invaluable knowledge on Information Technology in Agriculture issues and disseminate this announcement to potential participants.
