Agro-geoinformation, the agricultural-related geo-information, is the key information in the agricultural decision making and policy formulation process. The Agro-Geoinformatics, a branch of geoinformatics, is the science and technology about handling digital agro-geoinformation, such as collecting (mainly through remote sensing and field investigation), processing, storing, archiving, preservation, retrieving, transmitting, accessing, visualization, analyzing, synthesizing, presenting, and disseminating agro-geoinformation. Recent advances in geoinformatics have created new opportunities and challenges in applying agro-geoinformatics to agriculture monitoring, assessment, and decision making. The International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics is a major venue for professionals and students to exchange ideas, research results, professional experiences, and future vision in the fields of geoinformation science, remote sensing, and their applications in agriculture.

This First International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics (Agro-Geoinformatics 2012) will be held in Shanghai, China on August 2-4, 2012. This conference has been sponsored by USDA through a Science and Education Competitive Grants Program grant "Enhancing Knowledgeable Agricultural Decision Support in Global Perspectives - Collaborative Partnership in Agro-geoinformatics Education and Research Exchange" and other organizations. The Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS) of George Mason University is responsible for organizing and Shanghai Jiaotong University for hosting the conference. We estimate that at least 200 professionals from all over the world will attend the conference. The conference will include plenary, oral, and poster sessions.
