‘Resilience of agricultural systems against crisis’

Tropentag will take place at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany, during September 19 – 21, 2012. Please note the change in conference date from earlier announcements. The call for papers and preliminary conference information is now available at:

The deadline for submission of your abstract(s) is May 1, 2012. 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 available at:

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. Notifications of acceptance will be sent on July 1, 2012.

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, 2012 for on-line publication.

For more detailed information please see the call text at

If you have participated in previous Tropentag conferences, your contact information is available in our participants’ database. Update your personal information at and use your data entry at the time of abstract submission and when registering for the conference. In doing so, you help avoid duplicate person entries in our database.
