We are very happy to communicate that extended and revised papers of accepted contributions will be invited for submission in a special issue of International Transactions in Operational Research, to be announced soon.
The BigDSSAgro2019 conference is the third conference in the series devoted to decision support systems in agriculture, which combine Operational Research methods and Big Data techniques to support many real-world decision-making problems in small scale farming, industrial agriculture, smart farms, agri-business supply chains, land use and environmental protection, among others. In BigDSSAgro 2019, the scope will be extended to focus on decisions, technologies and innovation for the 2030 agriculture.
