This platform will allow scientists, researchers, academicians and young stud


ents to interact with eminent scientists/ technologists working across the globe in interdisciplinary cyber-physical systems to make agriculture a profession of hope.

Sessions will offer information on key topics for scientists, Agriculture Engineers, farm practitioners, crop consultants, advisors, extension personnel, agronomists, producers, and other practitioners. ICSTA 2023 will serve as a common platform for discussing the new ideas/developments/breakthrough and prospects on multifunctional agricultural practices with leading scientists/technologists and to be acquainted with their experience and knowledge.


Regular papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers (Work-in-Progress) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results. Posters are intended for ongoing research projects, concrete realizations, or industrial applications/ project presentations.
