New sensors and algorithms are increasing the possibilities of plant traits accessible to phenotyping. Data availability on different scales – from single plants to ecosystems – is rapidly increasing. Expectations are thus high that phenotyping will open new ways for basic plant research, plant breeding, agricultural management and environmental protection. A key for advance is the interaction between plant, technical and mathematical sciences. The conference will link researchers, developers and users, in order to present the state-of-the art and discuss future chances and requirements to plant phenotyping.
