International congress

Smart Agriculture, Sustainability and Advanced Control of Complex Systems

September 22nd, 25th 2021


Welcome to the congress

It is becoming increasingly clear that the world is going through an unprecedented period because of the different mutations that characterize it

Thus, the agriculture sector faces, among other things, the challenge of coping with these developments with population growth and climate change.

Big data, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) will play a central role in triggering and supporting the fourth revolution in agriculture.

One of its components, precision farming, is about to transform farm management and control through recent developments in the field of wireless sensor networks, offering a multitude of programming possibilities.

Congress Venue


Founded eight centuries ago, Marrakech is one of the so-called imperial cities of Morocco.

This city is known for the red color of its houses.

It is named the pearl of Morocco for its beauty, its architecture and its hinterland at the foot of the High Atlas, majestic mountain range culminating at over 4000m.

Marrakech has also become one of the main economic and tourist centers of Morocco.

Like many North African cities, it is mainly divided into medina, the ancient fortified city and the modern city located nearby (called Gueliz).

The city has a wonderful climate with snowy white winters and hot, humid summers.

It is the warmth and sociability of the inhabitants that are famous worldwide.

It is always nice to walk in the city of Marrakech. Small souks in small alleys and squares are very interesting especially those dedicated to specific trades.
