Phenospex - Do we really need digital plant phenotyping?

The first digital phenotyping platforms have been introduced more than 10 years ago. Many developments have taken place in that time, some successful, some not. This workshops goal is to put phenotyping into perspective. All presenters have a well established reputation in plant phenotyping and would like to share their experience and latest results to give a realistic impression on the current and future status of digital plant phenotyping. This workshop will be of great value for those planning the first or next steps into digital plant phenotyping. After these inspiring talks there is time to debate together in order to answer the question raised in this workshops title. By facilitating this workshop the organizing committee (Phenospex, PSI and Phenokey) would like to advocate we're convinced that collaboration between suppliers and users will fuel the next steps in the inspiring field of plant phenotyping. We do not intend to make this workshop overly commercial but rather want to further narrow the genome vs phenome gap, the suppliers vs users gap has to be bridged. We hope you will join us to contribute to answer the question raised in this workshop's title.
