Call for paper

The proposals for papers will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee (CS) of the Symposium on the basis of the submitted summary. These summaries are written in English. The form can be downloaded from the website (heading: submission). The last date for submission is March 15th, 2016, and the form must be sent to this address:


The CS will propose, in return, for the papers that are selected:

- either a poster presentation along with a double-sided presentation sheet,

- or the drafting of a long text (of 10 pages) associated with an oral presentation.

Precise instructions for the text format (double-sided presentation sheet, poster, long text) will be communicated to you with advice from the CS.


A collection of the Symposium proceedings will be downloadable for the opening of the Symposium. It will be composed of the double-sided sheets associated with the poster presentations and of the long texts associated with the oral presentations.


Although several languages will be authorized for the oral presentations and the posters (Portuguese and English at least, other languages under discussion), the long texts and the double-sided sheets associated with the poster presentations must be written only in English. The authors are requested to pay particular attention to the writing and translation of their texts, because no thorough revision will be made by us.

After the Symposium, the scientific committee plans to use a selection of presentations chosen for their relevance and their interest in connection with the desired objectives, namely: to capitalize knowledge of transformations in farming work, to give an account of the diversity and dynamics of the forms of work organization in different farming models (family, agribusiness, high-tech…), and to propose ways of thinking about the future of the work of men and women, family workers and employees. The medium for this development is under discussion and will be specified in 2016 (publication of a work and/or special issues of reviews).
