Acceptance of abstracts and notification to authors

The organising committee will assess abstracts against the following criteria:

  • Clear conclusions and/or perspectives / recommendations for future directions
  • Relevance to identified theme and topic(s)
  • Quality of abstract presentation, within the word limit

At least the corresponding author must be committed to attending the Conference.

Papers accepted for the conference will be given the option to extend the abstract up to two (2) pages with a set structure: introduction, methods, results and discussion, and conclusion, and resubmit before 1 August 2019.

Abstracts (or extended abstracts) will be included in the Abstract booklet of the conference; this will be available online just before the conference.

Authors interested in preparing a full paper may submit it to the Rangeland Journal; there will also be a Special Issue of the Journal “Resilient future rangelands” arising from the conference, which will invite some papers (further details will be announced on the conference web page).
