Submission of Papers

The conference has been structured so as to obtain succinct review updates on all of the important topics relating to the cultivation and use of Leucaena for livestock raising; and on the many alternative uses of this versatile plant.

We are inviting plenary (6–8 pages), keynote (4–6 pages), and poster papers (2–3 pages). All those interested in leucaena are invited to submit their work on one of the topics listed on the Program Tab.

We encourage authors to add high resolution photographs or other illustrations that enhance the interpretation of their review, and we will happily accept 6–8 pages (~500 words per page) where excellent relevant images are included.

All manuscripts arising from the conference will be published in a special issue of the online journal Tropical Grasslands – Forrajes Tropicales.

The journal editors request that your manuscript(s) be prepared and submitted by mid-August. This gives them sufficient time to review your manuscript, and communicate with you regarding any editorial or content adjustments that they might wish you to consider.

We ask you to strictly follow the Guide to Authors prepared by the journal Tropical Grasslands – Forrajes Tropicales. We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal’s section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process.
