The use of information level intelligence to complement innovation in the agricultural domain is inhibited by the non-existence of a closed-loop informatics solution that allows information gathering, processing and analyzing, decision making, observing consequences, and feeding back for forecasting. To manage precision agriculture over a wide area one needs to develop and deploy robust convergent platforms to process information, fuse, summarize, reason, learn, predict, and deliver actionable intelligence in a timely fashion. The informatics-based intelligence enabled by such platforms can fundamentally transform agricultural practices that can lead to higher yield, more efficient utilization of natural resources, prevention of unforeseen calamities, and crop quality improvement. A robust convergent platform for closed loop acquisition of ground data enables performing analytics and inference to create timely actionable intelligence that can be delivered to field workers, agro-researchers, and farmers through a "knowledge network".
This workshop brings together experts in sensor networking, communication, analytics, bigdata, and inference, software engineering, agricultural economics, and remote sensing to discuss this problem, and present the state-of-the-art in the use of informatics-based solutions for accelerating innovation in agriculture and inspire social entrepreneurship in this domain.

AGRINETS 2015 solicits paper submissions of up to 6 pages in length, including all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted via the submission site on EasyChair in PDF. The proceedings will be published by IEEE Xplore and will include the final papers of up to 6 pages in length. All technical papers must be associated with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers, one full registration is valid for up to three papers. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.
Overall appearance: Submitted papers should adhere to the appearance of the standard IEEE twocolumn format that is used for IEEE Transactions.
Margins: Papers must use a 10pt font on US Letter paper with margins no smaller than 0.75in for the top margin, 1.0in for the bottom margin, and 0.625in for side margins.
Templates: Depending on whether you are using LaTeX or Microsoft Word for formatting your paper, you can download the relevant templates that incorporate the formatting specifications at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
Full papers must be submitted using the EasyChair submission system. If you don't have an EasyChair account, the link will allow you to create one.
After submitting your paper you will receive an automated reply from EasyChair. Some email systems may filter this email as spam - it is very important that you check if this is happening, and rectify it. Subsequent emails about your submission will be sent via EasyChair, and it is important that you receive them. Please direct any questions to the Workshop Co-Chairs.
