SCOPE and Goals

The advent of instrumentation that provides increasingly detailed data on the operations and constituents of the agriculture and food system has opened up new opportunities for Data Science to improve decision making for the systems and people that bring food from farm to fork, encompassing production, infrastructure, and consumers.  The workshop aims to promote data-driven collaboration amongst Texas A&M researchers working in agriculture and related fields, including health and nutrition, business, economics, supply chain management, the environment, education, behavioral sciences, statistics, computer science, and engineering.

Workshop Format

This informal workshop will comprise:

  • Three invited keynote talks and short submitted talks arranged in thematic sessions with plenty of time for discussion.
  • A panel discussion featuring recent graduates working in areas relevant to the scope of the workshop.

The workshop will be held in hybrid mode allowing both in person and remote participation.

Keynote Speakers

  • Kathy Baylis, Department of Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara
  • Venkatesh Shankar, Mays Business School
  • Patrick Stover, Director, Texas A&M AgriLife Institute for Advancing Health through Agriculture
