North American Plant Phenotyping Network

Upcoming Events




PHENOME 2019


February 6-10, 2019

The 3rd annual Phenome conference represents a multidisciplinary community comprising plant biologists, ecologists, engineers, agronomists, computational scientists, and representatives from U.S. federal agencies who come together in a rich and diverse networking environment to foster collaboration, innovation, and the initiation of multi-investigator and multi-institution projects.

Phenome 2019 will include the following NAPPN events:

NAPPN General Assembly Meeting
Wednesday, February 6
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM MST
Location: Coronado II

The North American Plant Phenotyping Network (NAPPN) is an association of scientists and researchers in the rapidly evolving area of plant phenomics, formed as a regional partner of the International Plant Phenotyping Network (IPPN).

This General Assembly Meeting is the annual business meeting of NAPPN. It will include review of the Executive Board elections and introduction of new members, announcement of the winner of the inaugural Early Career Scientist Award, updates to By-Laws and a review of the recent NAPPN Survey.

All are welcome to attend!

This event is also available online via xoom, go here for connection details.

The meeting agenda is available here.


NAPPN Community Session
Friday, February 8
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM MST
Location: Presidio I & II

The NAPPN Community Session will introduce the mission and structure of the recently formed North American Plant Phenotyping Network. This meeting will discuss current activities and objectives of the NAPPN and use the results of the recent NAPPN survey to generate discussion on the future direction and objectives of this organization. Input from the participates is greatly encouraged to help set the direction for this new organization to help support and enhance the development of the field of phenomics.

CVPR 2019 Workshop on Computer Vision Problems in Plant Phenotyping (CVPPP 2019)


June 16th, 2019

After the successful CVPPP workshops from recent years at ECCV, BMVC and ICCV, CVPPP this year is held in conjunction with CVPR 2019. The goal of this fifth workshop is to continue to showcase the challenges raised by and extend the state of the art in computer vision for plant phenotyping. Plant phenotyping is the identification of effects on plant structure and function (the phenotype) resulting from genotypic differences (i.e., differences in the genetic code) and the environmental conditions a plant has been exposed to. Knowledge of plant phenotypes is a key ingredient of the knowledge-based bioeconomy, which not only literally helps to feed the world, but is also essential for feed, fibre and fuel production. We want to identify key but unsolved problems, expose the current state-of-the-art, and broaden the field and the community.
