Submitting a Conference Paper

Details of the first and final call for Contributed and Poster papers for the next Conference of the Grassland Society of NSW are available at Call for Contributed and Poster Papers (deadline 29th March 2019).

Procedures for submitting a Conference paper and guidelines for authors have changed from previous years. These procedures have been implemented to streamline the process of submission, editing, formatting and printing to ensure that the printed Proceedings are available to delegates at the Conference. Details of the procedures are provided in the Guidelines for submitting a paper to a NSW Grasslands Conference. The Guidelines also contain a copy of a sample paper.

ALL papers (Invited, Contributed, or Poster Paper and Travel Grant Reports) to be published in the Proceedings MUST be submitted using the template that specifies the layout for the title, name, address, headings, text, Figures and Tables (including captions) and References formats. Download the MS Word Template for submitting a paper to a NSW Grasslands Conference, retain the formats and remove the text and start typing your paper using the Template and Guidelines for style and format details.

As previously all papers will need to be reviewed by two referees prior to submission. For each reviewer a downloadable Reviewer’s Report Form must be submitted electronically at the time of submission together with attached Word documents showing Track Changes and Comments/Suggested Changes by each reviewer and the action taken by the authors.

Submission and acceptance of a Contributed or Poster paper implies that one of the authors on the paper will be attending the Conference and that a poster will be prepared for display using the required Poster Format.

  1. How much does the conference cost to attend?

  2. The cost of attending the conference depends on whether you are a member, what part of the conference you are attending. Please see the registration form (link above) for the 2009 costs.

  3. Appreciate advice of cost non member Wagga Conference for July day 1 and tours day 2

  4. Costs for various options are listed on the Conference Brochure and Registrations Form (see link above). If you do not need the full package (ie. conference and dinner), then two single days is 2 x $135 = $270. Significant savings for members so you may consider becoming a member as well.
