EFITA is the European conference dedicated to the future use of ICT in the agri-food sector, bioresource and biomass sector. It was launched and is supported by the European Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture, Food and the Environment (EFITA). The first EFITA was held in 1997, and 2017 is the 11th of the series. Montpellier, France, had the pleasure to welcome the event already in 2001 and is most happy to do it again. We hope that you will enjoy the event in the pleasant site of the renowned Montpellier Supagro school. We will make our best to provide a nice atmosphere for knowledge sharing and thinking the future of ICT technologies within the agri-food and bioresource sectors. We welcome proposals of related events such as project meetings and ICT demonstrations to take place within the conference schedule and facilities. Special sessions may also be proposed. Please contact the organizing committee. A technical tour to ICT in agriculture and territory management will be organized at the end of the conference (july 6th). The conference pages will be updated regularly. Please, tick the days in your agenda and you are welcome already to browse the topics and abstracts/date sections.   On behalf of the organizing committee. Dr. Jean-Pierre Chanet (President of the AFIA, Irstea), Dr. Olivier Naud (Irstea), Prof. Bruno Tisseyre (Supagro).
