APSAFE 2020 : Asia Pacific Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics Conference 2020
Call For Papers
The Asia Pacific Society of Agricultural and Food Ethics (ApSafe) invites researchers from around the world to submit abstracts for presentation at our 2020 conference on December 11, and our sessions at the International Conference on Applied Ethics 2020 on December 12-13, in Hiroshima, Japan. These conferences will bring together researchers and practitioners from various fields of humanities and social sciences, agricultural and food, biotechnology, organic movement, NPO / SME representatives, and up-and-coming leaders in the field of food and agriculture and create a platform for exchange of professional and practical knowledge and networking opportunities at the international level.
This is an opportunity to share your research with Asia-Pacific colleagues who are actively aligning technology assessment, rural sociology, agriculture, aquaculture with advances in philosophy and ethics. We welcome abstracts related to the following field, whether the work is empirical or theoretical:
- Food Sovereignty
- Civic Food Networks
- Food Policy and Governance
- Foresight Methods
- Circular Economy
- Food Law
- Sustainability Transition
- Veterinary Ethics
- Social Practice
- Food Futures
Abstracts will be peer reviewed. Acceptance will be based on content, available space, and overall program balance. Poster presentation will take place on December 11, 2020. Opportunities for oral presentations will also be available at ICAE 2020 sessions on December 12 and 13, 2020.
Accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper to the Food Ethics Journal published by Springer. All journal submission will be subject to full journal peer review.

*** Presentations ***
Authors of accepted abstracts who will attend the meeting are expected to present a poster (if not selected to give an oral presentation). Poster presentations will be from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm on Friday, December 11, 2020. To provide communication opportunities for all poster presenters, we will have two 60 minutes' sessions (1:30-2:30 and 2:30-3:30), so the duration of the presentation will be one hour. The poster PDF will be distributed to participants in advance to catalyze lively exchanges. We will inform you the due date of data submission with notice of acceptance. When preparing your poster, please keep the dimensions no more than 914 mm wide by 1292 mm tall. Any oversize dimensions will encroach on other posters or walkways. We will commend the best posters of student division and general division at the end of the day.
A number of authors will be invited (on the basis of abstract topic and quality of submissions) to introduce more case studies at our session at ICAE2020, on Saturday, December 12 and Sunday, December 13. We will release information about the presentation format and selection process for these presentations at a later date. Authors who are selected for an oral presentation will not be expected to present a poster.
