This conference will serve as the official launch of the new Center. We will highlight our vision for the future of Digital Agriculture, discuss various ways in which companies can partner with the Center, and showcase early collaborations between the Grainger College of Engineering, the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences (ACES), NCSA, and the Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB). You will have the chance to network with domain experts and other company representatives at the nexus of engineering, agriculture, and computation, learn about collaboration opportunities, expand your hiring programs, and help us shape the future directions of the Center.
