-       New questions about agroecosystem services and functioning (session 4 : please see details)

 Participants should refer to the details of the call for abstracts to target a session.

The scientific committee will review abstracts before acceptance. The scientific committee reserves the right to redirect an application to a session other than the one initially chosen by the author, if necessary. In order to allow a maximum number of participants to present their work, participants should submit only one abstract as a presenting author, although they may appear as co-authors on other abstract submissions. As each session will have a limited number of slots, the committee might offer to authors whose abstracts are not accepted as oral presentations the possibility to present their work as a poster instead. Only proposals of insufficient scientific quality or clearly not within the subject of the symposium will be rejected.

Oral presentations will dispose of 15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of discussion. If an abstract appears to be of particular interest to the scientific committee, the committee may propose to the author to present his or her work as a keynote, of longer duration (30 minutes, 10 minutes of discussion).
