Dear Sir or Madam,

Today we cordially invite you to the conference ”5G & Digital Farming” from 1 to 2 October 2019 in Dresden.

A sustainable precision agriculture in connection with economy and ecology nowadays is driven by digital solutions with communication technologies as an essential pillar.

“5G & Digital Farming” is dedicated to this complex of topics with lectures from science, industry and associations, with a European perspective by international speakers and supplemented by a panel discussion of key stakeholders.

With an excursion to the “Test and Demonstration Field Smart Farming” of the Educational and Experimental Station Köllitsch (LfULG), on-site demonstrations will give you an insight into the location of the first instance and core cell of the Saxon 5G test and experimental field. At the traditional evening event "Landtechnikertreff", you will have the opportunity to talk to other experts in the industry.

The event will take place as part of the IEEE 5G World Forum (30 September - 2 October 2019, ieee-wf-5g.org) together with the IEEE 5G Summit (1 October 2019, 5gsummit.org) giving you the opportunity to see first-hand 5G application demonstrations.
