Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

The Asian Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture (AFITA) was founded in January 24, 1998 in Wakayama City, Japan. As the Pacific region issues on information technology in agriculture complements with the Asian countries, it has been decided in the AFITA Board Meeting 2018 to rename the association as Asia-Pacific Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture (APFITA). APFITA connects the scientists and businesses in the following fields: agricultural monitoring system, agri-food supply chain, data-driven farming advisory, inclusion, policy and land use planning. APFITA association organizes the Asian-Pacific Federation for Information and Technology in Agriculture (also abbreviated as APFITA) every two years in one of its member countries. Until 2018 the APFITA Association organized a biennial conference on Agricultural Information Technology Applications in Agriculture in the Asia-Pacific (also abbreviated as APFITA workshop) in one of its member countries. Since 2019, due to many countries requesting to host the conference, the APFITA council has decided to allow the annual conference. The association members discussed and agreed to choose the University of Engineering and Technology, Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU-UET) to host the conference in 2022.

The World Congress on Computer in Agriculture (WCCA) was initiated by the International Network for IT in Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INFITA). Present member organization of INFITA include APFITA (Asia), EFITA (Europe), PanAFITA (the Americas), ANITA (Africa), CIGR, FAO, and IAALD.  In 2022, INFITA board decided to organize the WCCA in conjunction with APFITA 2022 in Hanoi, Vietnam

We are pleased to announce a call for applications for “The 13th Asian-Pacific Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture 2022 (APFITA 2022): Promoting Smart Technologies for Sustainable Agriculture” hosted by the University of Engineering and Technology – Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU-UET), The Asian-Pacific Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture (APFITA), Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and Vietnam Digital Agriculture Association (VIDA). 

 The APFITA 2022 aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, agencies, and industry partners through science presentation and business matching. Besides that, the conference organizes the session on discussion and recommendation on science and technology policies in sustainable agricultural development. The conference is also the platform to exhibit new advances and research results in the fields of agricultural technology.


The conference organizing committee would like to announce and welcome the scientists, researchers in the agricultural science and technology and related fields, the PhD students to submit papers and attend the conference. It would be much appreciated if you could circulate this announcement to members of your university institution/ colleagues/ researchers/ students/ who may find it of interest. The information will be update on the following website
