Meeting ID: 974 0094 5139
In an everchanging landscape agriculture is constantly challenged to acquire new skills and transform the service delivery systems in order to remain relevant and keep up with technological trends. After mechanisation, the introduction of mineral fertiliser and the industrialisation of production processes, connectivity and data management are now set to unleash the next revolution in the history of farming: Smart Farming / Precision agriculture.It has now reached a point where it is not only possible to collect vast quantities of data but also to control different pieces of equipment or monitor individual animals, via the Internet of Things. A growing number of farmers are starting to adopt digital technology and data-driven innovations.
The FABI International Seminar Series
In light of the extraordinary circumstances experienced around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most, if not all, scientific meetings have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. One of the many benefits of these meetings is science engagement.
The FABI International Seminar Series provides an opportunity for our research community to continue discussions on various topics. Our guest speakers will cover a wide range of topics related to plant health. Our monthly virtual seminars are open to all registered participants ensuring a wide audience.
Open Plant Pathology is an initiative that supports and promotes the spread of all open, transparent and reproducible practices in the field of plant pathology. We advocate for an open science culture and our teams work to enhance this culture by 1) Offering Workshops in-person or via webinars, 2) Organizing Virtual Seminars for enhancing scientific exchanges, 3) Developing open sources tools and 4) Supporting Editorial Boards of journals to enhance reproducibility.
Coordinated by Dr. Benjamin Schwessinger, the Virtual Seminars (aka science webinars) are a venue for delivering scientific talks of general interest to a plant pathology audience. Anyone is welcome to contribute a seminar. If you are interested, please answer a few questions for approval.
The seminars are pre-approved and disseminated widely via Twitter.
It is live broadcast via Zoom at a date & time of the speaker’s convenience.
The speaker is available to answer questions from the audience after the seminar (e.g. up to 1 hour) either within the Zoom chat and/or on the OPP Slack channel for webinars.
The live event will be recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel.
The video file and all associated materials (slides, chat texts, codes, etc.) will be made freely accessible under the CC BY license through OSF with a DOI provided for each the materials presented.
