The Brazilian Congress of Agroinformatics has been held for nearly ten years by the Brazilian Agroinformatics Association. SBIAgro 2007, organized by the Farming Informatics Division of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMPRABA) and the Faculty of Agricultural Engineering of Unicamp, will be held in the Convention Center of the Hotel Fazenda Fonte Colina Verde, in Sao Pedro (SP) from 8-11 October 2007. The central theme of the Congress will be opportunities and challenges in the use of information technology in agribusiness. In this context, the congress will look at the application of IT in cutting-edge areas such as Nanotechnology and Bioinformatics, overcoming non-tariff barriers, Food Security, Traceability, and Biodiversity monitoring, as well as the repositionining of the global energy matrix through Bioenergy. We are working to make SBIAgro 2007 a favorable environment for the exchange of information between agribusiness professionals, scientists, companies, and students, offering opportunities for networking and the realization of ideas.
