Call for papers
Mediterranean agriculture facing climate change: Challenges and policies
The 9th AIEAA Annual Conference aims to contribute to this debate, by addressing economic and policy analysis of impacts, mitigation and adaptation options for agricultural systems facing climate change. AIEAA welcomes the submission of contributions on the topics above. However, the submission of contributions on other agricultural and applied economics topics is also encouraged.
Contribution proposals should be submitted in English through Conftool, available from the conference page on the AIEAA website (www.aieaa.org). There are three types of contributions: contributed papers, organized sessions, and posters.
Participants intending to present a contributed paper are requested to submit an extended abstract (minimum 1,500 words; maximum 2,000 words) before February 9, 2020. Abstracts should include:
a. Introduction to the topic and objectives of the paper
b. Description of data and research methodology
c. Discussion of the expected theoretical and/or empirical results
d. Main conclusions and emphasis on the paper’s potential for generating discussion during the conference
e. A list of few essential references.
All submitted abstracts will be subject to a blind peer review process. Authors will be notified of paper acceptance by March 20, 2020.
The final version of accepted contributions (either in the form of full paper or revised long abstract) should be submitted by May 15, 2020.
Upon Authors’ authorization, the final version of the abstract/paper will be made available on the conference website and on AgEcon Search.
A selection of accepted papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of Bio-based and Applied Economics and in a regular issue of New Medit after going through the journals’ standard review process.
Participants are invited to propose organized sessions primarily, but not exclusively, on topics relevant to the conference themes. Proposals (max 2,000 words) should include the name of the organizer, the session title, the name of contributors, and the title and abstract of each paper. It is suggested that proposed sessions include no more than four papers. Proposals should be submitted by February 9, 2020. Organized session proposals will be subject to a peer review process. Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 20, 2020.
AIEAA welcomes the submission of posters. Accepted posters will be presented and discussed in dedicated sessions. Participants should submit an abstract (max 500 words) by February 9, 2020. Poster proposals will be subject to a blind peer review process. Authors will be notified of poster acceptance by March 20, 2020.
