Japan congress kicks off

Atsugi, Japan, 24 August: Participants from around the world have started arriving in the small city of Atsugi, south of Tokyo for the 12th IAALD World Congress. Co-sponsored by AFITA, local organizers from JAALD and JSAI have been busy with last minute arrangements at the conference venue, the Tokyo University of Agriculture.

Today started with several pre-congress workshops:
  • Adoption of ICT Enabled Information Systems for Agricultural Development
  • Image Management: Finding and Using Images on the Web
  • Designing Food Management and Security System
  • Geo-ICT and Sensor Network Technology and Applications
In an effort to make some of the congress discussions more accessible to the wider community, this blog, and other web spaces, will carry regular news and updates from the congress. Look across the Internet for the ‘aginfo8’ tag!

Peter Ballantyne welcomes you:

Dear Peter

I have watched your video about IAALD introduction in Japan.

Well done. Congratulations for putting up this mechanism.

Thanks a lot for all the efforts so that we can share this conference even if we have not been able to join in.
