As a precursor to the ICT4Ag conference, Plug and Play Day offers participants a valuable and very practical insight into the latest technological developments in the field of ICT for agriculture.

This is a true hands-on experience with demonstrations and in-depth sessions by prestigious application providers and experienced practitioners. Test drive the latest m-apps, Web2.0 and social media tools and discover how you can make them work for you. Topics covered in these Plug and Play Day sessions will closely parallel the broader conference  streams and will be tailored to the needs of our stakeholder groups such as farmers and farmer organisations, agricultural researchers, policy and decision makers, intermediary organisations, private sector organizations, and civil society and advocacy groups.

Proposals are being solicited from the general public for applications/tools/solutions developers and “techies”, who may be interested in demonstrating or teaching others how to use these technologies for agricultural development. (Note: this could also be a platform for apps/tools/solutions developers to showcase the value of their innovations to potential users/clients).

For full details please see the document below. To submit your proposal please complete this form.


The deadline for receipt of submissions is 9 June 2013. Successful entrants will be notified by latest 1 July 2013.
