PlantComp 2020: Workshop on plant sensing and computing
During this two-day event, PlantComp will bring together young researchers within the field of plant physiology, sensing and modelling in a single-track setting with plenary keynotes, comprehensive poster sessions and broadening introductory workshops.
PlantComp 2020 will take place at the iGent tower of Ghent University. This is a sustainable office building of 54 meters high which features passive cooling and solar panels on the south-facing side of the building. Furthermore, in winter it is heated by using the waste heat from the 1000 square meter data center behind the building. The venue is close to the historical centre of Ghent, with a 1,000-year-old fortress, three medieval towers, and the most beautiful double row of houses on opposing riversides in Europe, all within walking distance from one another.
