With over 1,000 participants, the International Conference on Digital Technologies for Sustainable Crop Production (DIGICROP) took place virtually over the course of three days. March 28-30, 2022, researchers from all across the world gathered on zoom to attend 7 keynotes and 61 talks from renown experts from the fields of engineering, robotics, computer science, crop sciences, agricultural sciences, phenotyping, and economics. The conference was run in three parallel tracks, which were visited by roughly 300 people on average. Breakout rooms gave participants the chance to directly engage with presenters, which was complemented by expert questions during the main session as well as moderated Q&As with the keynote speakers.

All talks can be found on the PhenoRob YouTube channel.

DIGICROP 2022 was organized and hosted by the DFG-funded Cluster of Excellence “PhenoRob – Robotics and Phenotyping for Sustainable Crop Production” at the University of Bonn and the AI Institute for Next Generation Food Systems (AIFS). PhenoRob is one of six Clusters of Excellence at the University of Bonn and is carried out in collaboration with the Forschungszentrum Jülich.
