  About Symposium   Aim of Symposium  
Symposium "Actual Tasks on Agricultural Engineering" has been organised for 46 years that shows its tradition and importance. During last years the Symposium achieved more international meaning thanks to co-sponsoring of EurAgEng, CIGR and AAAE.
Papers from Symposium's proceedings are indexed into Clarivate Analytics (former Thomson Reuters) Conference Proceedings Citation Index and ISTP, CAB International - Agricultural Engineering Abstracts.

The aim of the Symposium
is to present the latest scientific results on all aspects of research, design and development work in the various disciplines of agricultural engineering.
Cooperation with CASEE is aimed to strengthening the connection of agricultural and biosystems engineering with other agricultural disciplines.

 Publishing partnership with Die Bodenkultur
“Die Bodenkultur: Journal of Land Management, Food and Environment” is an interdisciplinary forum dedicated to all aspects of research in the rural area. The aim of the journal is to provide an international outlet for new results in all disciplines of land management, food, environment and related subjects  (
The ATAE team is proud of its collaboration with “Die Bodenkultur” Journal and we are pleased that through this, our Symposium delegates have the opportunity to have their work published in this scientific journal. Authors of selected papers from ATAE Symposium or CASEE session “Agricultural Engineering” will be invited to submit publication in peer reviewed special issue of “Die Bodenkultur” journal...
