We are happy to announce the 2nd workshop on plant sensing and computing: PlantComp! In October 2022, PlantComp will bring together young researchers in plant physiology, sensing and modelling.

PlantComp 2022

Plants grow in an ever-changing environment. Consequently, their performance strongly depends upon their ability to dynamically adapt their physiology to the altered environmental conditions. However, research is only just unravelling these response dynamics through improved sensing, phenotyping and modelling efforts.

PlantComp will bring together young researchers in plant physiology, sensing and modelling. Due to the increased specialisation in these fields, researchers are often unaware of novel technologies from other fields. PlantComp is set up to bridge this gap and to facilitate a cross-pollination among these fields in plant sciences and to advance towards increased interdisciplinary research. Only combined efforts in phenotyping, sensing and modelling will enable us to uncover these dynamic plant aspects.

An interactive workshop for young researchers

During this two-day event, PlantComp will bring together young researchers within the field of plant physiology, sensing and modelling in a single-track setting with plenary keynotes, comprehensive poster sessions and broadening introductory workshops.
