This call for contributions (300 words abstract) is aimed to identify participants who will be invited for oral presentations in workshops and posters. These participants will be asked to submit a 2 pages paper in order to be published in the FSD6 proceedings.

We also open a call for proposals of mini-symposia: 90 minutes sessions including 5 oral presentations and discussion on specific topic or problem.

Abstract submission process

The 300-words abstract should contain enough information to identify which concepts, methods, or applications are going to be developed in the 2 pages paper and oral/poster presentation. To help in the review process each abstract should be submitted with a selection of a preferred position (i.e. the position claimed in priority by the authors) in a matrix structure crossing a thematic novelty and an applied topic (more detail on the website):

Thematic novelty (select one):

• TN 1: Novel methods to analyze or design farming systems,
• TN 2: Novel Farming systems knowledge (even if obtained with old methods),
• TN 3: Novel Innovation systems knowledge,
• TN 4: Success stories in Farming Systems Design and innovation systems, lessons from implementation in practice
• TN 5: Emerging challenges in FSD.

Applied Topics (TO) (select one)

• TO 1: Scaling up from farm to territory or global
• TO 2: Scaling down and up inside farms
• TO 3: Methods for quantitative analysis and comparison of cropping or farming systems
• TO 4: Complex adaptive systems: can we design operational farming systems with high agrobiodiversity?
• TO 5: Supporting policy decision with farming systems trade-off analysis, risk analysis and scenarios of change.
By signing up, you'll be able to edit your abstract, upload your submissions, manage your registration to the FSD6 and book your accomodation.
