Authors who have submitted an abstract have been notified. If you did not receive a notification email with the invitation to submit the full-length contribution, please contact us.

If your abstract is accepted, you are invited by the scientific committee to submit a full-length contribution to the EGF-EUCARPIA-Symposium 2019. You can choose to write either a 1-page extended summary OR a 3-page short paper. Only one of these two formats can be accepted for publication in the conference proceedings.

The submission of the full-lenght contribution is mandatory in order for the contribution to be included in the Symposium's program (either as oral or poster presentation).

The accepted full-length contributions will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be published as volume 24 of the book series "Grassland Science in Europe". The book will be available as a hard copy and as an electronic version at the Symposium.

Please note: Only payment of the registration fees for the presenting author entitles you to have your manuscript printed in "Grassland Science in Europe".

Young scientists (max. 35 years old) are eligible for a reduced registration fee. There is a limited number of such grants and they will be assigned based on the quality of the contribution.

To submit your manuscript:

  • Please read the instruction to the authors carefully. These instructions are available here.
  • Please be informed that the manuscript must follow all the provided guidelines. Manuscripts showing serious shortcomings in formatting will be rejected.
  • Refer to these examples for the 1-page extended summary and the 3-page short paper.
  • The manuscript submission form has been created so that you do not need to re-enter the whole list of author names and addresses. It is therefore important that the presenting author given in this form matches the author declared as presenting author upon abstract submission.
  • If there is a change in presenting author (and/or in the authors list) from the earlier abstract submission, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. accordingly upon submission.

All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. Thus, submission does not guarantee acceptance of a manuscript.

The evaluation form that will be used for the review process can be found here.

The deadline of the paper submission is Sunday 2. December 2018. An extension of this deadline will not be possible due to the whole review, editing and printing process.

The final assignment of the contribution to an oral or poster presentation will be done after the review of the submitted manuscripts.
