Facilitating Balanced Change for Rural and Urban Communities - Profitability & sustainability, land & sea, private & public, farms & communities
[ Copied from conference APEN webpage] The conference is being held jointly with GFRAS (http://www.g-fras.org/en/) and follows the 2017 GFRAS Annual General meeting to be held in Ingham, North Queensland. The conference is an international meeting for rural advisory practitioners, researchers and academics that combines the best extension research and practice from developing and developed countries.
In North Queensland we have both wet and dry tropical agriculture and a very large marine park that is managed for a range of uses. We will showcase the integration of production and natural resource management extension in the wet and dry tropics that focuses on achieving outcomes that meet the environmental needs of the rainforest and reef as well as the economic and social needs of dryland and irrigated agricultural production in the tropics.
We are inviting submission of abstracts of potential presentations at the conference. Options for presenting may include oral presentations of approximately 20 minutes, soap box presentations of approximately 10 minutes and poster presentations, workshops, open space, panel discussion etc . Based on the abstract, your preferences and timeliness of submission and registration, the Conference Program Committee will allocate presentation times and formats.
* Paper Abstracts due as soon as you can to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the abstract guidelines and template available above. * Authors notified 15th August 2017. * Authors submit paper to journal for review by the conference (only those seeking to publish).
