Building communities and architectures for the data revolution
 Brian King (CIAT/Big Data Platform) - <10 Minutes

Toward a unified architecture vision for crop breeding* Tom
 Hagen (CIMMYT/Excellence in Breeding) <20 Minutes

"Smart Agronomy Data Management. Experiences from the African Cassava Agronomy initiative”
  Stefan Hauser ( IITA) <20 Minutes

Building an image analysis pipeline-as-a-service for breeding decisions
  Michael Selvaraj ( CIAT ) <15 Minutes

Standardizing Data Collection from Agronomy Trials via the Agronomy Field Information Management System (AgroFIMS)
 Medha Devare( IFPRI/Big Data Platform)/ Marie Angelique LaPorte (Bioversity) <20 Minutes

Breeding informatics solutions for the RTB Crops*  Lukas Mueller (Cornell University) <20 Minutes
 Daniel Jimenez (CIAT)

From 3-5 PM the same day, time as been set aside for two “deeper-dive” demonstrations of informatics tools bridging breeding and agronomy use-cases, from Medha and Lukas.

Participants will be urged to attend these demos, hopefully equipped with some new insights into the architectures for building the data revolution in tropical root crops.
