[robotics-worldwide] [journals] CFP: Special Issue on Agricultural and Field Robotics in /Robotics/ - an open access journal by MDPI

Linda Wang
Dear Colleagues,

Robotics is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Agricultural and
Field Robotics". Prof. Dr. Qin Zhang and Prof. Dr. Manoj Karkee, both
from Washington State University, are serving as Guest Editors for this
issue. We would like to invite you to contribute based on your expertise.

Agriculture is one of the oldest and most important industries that
human civilization has established. Fundamentally, agriculture relies on
the efficient utilization of natural resources, such as land, water,
nutrition, and other chemicals to produce the basic necessities of human
lives, including food, fiber, feed, and fuel. As predicted by the United
Nations, the world’s population will increase to approximately 10
billion by 2050. The continuously increasing pressure to feed a rapidly
growing population presents a huge challenge to the agricultural
industry: How to sustainably produce enough agricultural supplies to
meet such a huge demand.

For further reading, please follow the link to the Special Issue website
at: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.mdpi.com_journal_robotics_special-5Fissues_AFR&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=kH93OnSRUftOZc6J1jNs3jBqUyZuF1F4pxhvj4ouavY&s=OFDupjlgbHSFZzFFsgYVmkK1suVUVkMLzSla9WEYwxA&e=.

The submission deadline is 31 July 2018. You may send your manuscript
now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under
consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to
send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in
advance ([hidden email]).

 From Volume 6, all published papers will be added in Scopus. The journal
is also indexed in Web of Science (Thomson Reuters), as part of the ESCI
database.

Robotics is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by
readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as
indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors
and their institutes. An article processing charge (APC) of CHF 350
currently applies to all accepted papers. You may be entitled to a
discount if you have previously received a discount code or if your
institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional Open Access Program
(IOAP), for more information see: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.mdpi.com_about_ioap&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=kH93OnSRUftOZc6J1jNs3jBqUyZuF1F4pxhvj4ouavY&s=IWImeKKLGBbgRoZyoA9Cnba1wJt5gsnxIVU9SFXU-Jc&e=.
