SmartAg 2015 will bring together leading figures working across multiple smart technology disciplines, including the next generation of Smart tech students.
Providing up and coming smart tech students with a platform to showcase their work, SmartAg 2015 will hold a student poster competition and is urging students studying or researching within any discipline involved in the development of smart technology to participate.
The competition will enable students to demonstrate their work to an interested audience, including taking a delegate place at the conference to hear some of the world’s leading ‘smart tech’ speakers.
During the Conference, the SmartAg 2015 committee will evaluate all posters in terms of research originality, content and potential impact of their study on UK Agriculture and Horticulture. The student with the winning poster will be awarded a £500 travel bursary to attend any international science symposium.
