Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue will comprise selected papers that will be presented during the 19th International Scientific Conference “Engineering for Rural Development”. The Conference will be held on 20–22 May 2020 at the Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies, Faculty of Engineering, Jelgava (http://www.tf.llu.lv/conference/).

The 19th International Scientific Conference “Engineering for Rural Development” is thematically dedicated to issues of Biosystem Engineering, Renewable/Conventional Energy, GHG Emissions/Waste Management, and Modeling/Simulation, with a special focus on rural environments. A special focus is  on the following topics:

  • Agricultural/livestock engineering;
  • Renewable/conventional energy;
  • GHG emission and waste management;
  • Agriengineering technologies/sensors;
  • Material/biomaterial science;
  • Transport and logistics;
  • Modelling and simulation;
  • CAD, CAE, CAM, CNC, PDM, PLM, BIM, GIS, and other computer aided technologies in engineering;
  • Engineering education/economics.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to more widely introduce the new theoretical and practical engineering solutions in agriculture.
