Notes for submitting an abstract

  • Scientific contributions must follow common rules for the description of survey methods and data assessment.
  • Contributions that do not meet scientific requirements (e.g. farmer observations without statistical data evaluation) can be submitted as ‘observation papers’. Please use the same form (see below) and select 'observation paper'.
  • Proposals may be for oral or poster presentation. The final decision on the presentation form will be taken by the programme committee.
  • All abstracts must be written in English. If your abstract is selected for an oral presentation and you want to give the talk in a language other than English, we will try to arrange a translation. In this case, please indicate your preferred language in the form below.
  • Abstracts will be subject to a review process. The programme committee decides about the acceptance or rejection of proposals based on the reviewer comments until May 15th, 2018.
  • We aim to arrange a special issue with a peer-reviewed scientific journal where authors can submit papers based on their contribution to the conference. Note that papers will have to pass the regular review process of the journal.
  • Please send us your abstract (max 4000 characters) by April 22 with the template below.
