Tropentag 2015 – Call for papers on management of land use systems for enhanced food security

Tropentag 2015 will take place in Berlin, Germany, from September 16–18. The call for papers and preliminary conference information is now available at:


The deadline for submission of your abstract(s) is May 1, 2015. There will be no extension of this submission deadline. The conference language is English and high quality abstracts of original research (250–350 words) are invited to be submitted using the online form at: http://submission.tropentag.de

Based on the quality of the submission, reviewers will decide upon the suitability of the contribution for presentation at the conference. Contributions of an interdisciplinary nature will be preferentially selected as oral presentation and we encourage younger scientists to make submissions.

Poster contributions will be grouped into thematic clusters and will be addressed in guided poster sessions. During the guided poster sessions, every poster presenter will introduce her/his topic (3 minutes talk).

Notifications of acceptance will be sent on July 1, 2015.

All accepted contributions will be published in the conference proceedings and on the Tropentag homepage. Contributions from authors not attending or presenting their submissions at the Tropentag will be deleted from the online version of the proceedings; so if you make submissions you are expected to attend the conference.

Authors are also able to submit a four page version of their paper before October 30, 2015 for on-line publication.
