Virtually International Conference on Agriculture, Climate Change, Information Technology, Food and Animal Sciences (ACIFAS 2020)

Medan, North Sumatera – Indonesia, 7-9 October 2020

It is our great pleasure to announce the International Conference on Agriculture, Climate Change, Information Technology, Food and Animal Sciences (ACIFAS 2020), to be held in October 2020 in Medan, Indonesia. The conference is organized by the Faculty of Agriculture of Sumtra Utara University, Indonesia. The primary objective of ACIFAS 2020  is to promote effective interaction and cooperation among scientists and technicians who are involved in agriculture research and development in the world with the view of encouraging and facilitating research activity, implementing research findings, sharing of information and publication of research results.  ACIFAS 2020  focuses on both theory, design and applications mainly covering the topics and the multi disciplines of Smart Agriculture Technology. In addition to the technical sessions, there will be invited sessions, panel sessions and keynote addresses. We solicit full-length, high-quality, and original papers on the following topics, not limited to:
