Special Track on Agriculture Early Warning Computing and Collective Intelligence

 

Description and Objectives

The workshop on Agriculture Early Warning Computing and Collective Intelligence (ACCI) advances the goals of MEDES'2015 to expand the space of Agriculture Early Warning Management" by fostering collaboration among researchers, practitioners, entrepreneurs in Brazil and abroad interested in exploring the current challenges related to Collective Intelligence and Agricultural early Warning Management.

To that end the ACCI Track will bring together interdisciplinary researchers, Bridge their diverse fields of research, and

Open the discussion on the challenges of Agriculture Early Warning Computing and Collective Intelligence.

 

The Track will address questions, such as:

  • How Community of farmers and computers generate and use early warning information: The Internet is changing the way farmers learn and categorise information, make and share decisions, and solve problems in a collaborative way.
  • How farmer cognition is influenced by their behavior of farmers: Social influence can be important in explaining farmers behavior, especially when farmers are part of a social environment where they can interact and observe others' behavior.
  • How research in collective intelligence can be applied to the design of agriculture early warning systems : Work in cognitive science can provide recommendations for improving the design of collective intelligence.

Authors are invited to submit full research papers or posters (up to  8  pages in the ACM format) on topics related to development and innovation, including but not limited to:

  • Crowdsourcing and agriculture early warning management
  • Social computing and agriculture early warning 
  • The emergence and intelligence of communities of farmers
  • Collective response to  early warning decision making
  • Collective intelligence-based operational research related to early warning management
  • Collective robustness, resilience, and stability of early warning management
  • Collective agriculture search and farmers’s problem solving
  • Collective farmer best practice and memory
  • Emergent organizational farmer forms
  • Technology and software that make farmer smarter toward early warnings
  • Collective Intelligence for the new farmer
  • Knowledge management and representation for agriculture early warning systems
