To submit your abstract, click here, register and access the platform.

During the submission process you will be asked to choose topic, approach, and species. You will find the complete list in the Ex Ordo platform (if relevant, you can select more topics, approaches or species).

The abstract should include a short introduction, description of the methods, results and conclusions.

All abstracts must be written in British English. The maximum length (without title, author names and affiliations) is 250 words.

The conference proceedings will be submitted for indexing in Scopus.


The Organizing Committee of the ECPLF 2024  is proud to announce that authors of papers presented at this conference and within the scope of the Scopus indexed Biosystems Engineering journal, may be invited to submit a technically extended version paper to the Special Issue “Modern numerical approaches and technology applications for monitoring and managing livestock health, welfare and production” having as guest editors Marco Bovo (University of Bologna) and Emanuela Dalla Costa (University of Milan).

Biosystems Engineering publishes research in engineering and the physical sciences that represent advances in understanding or modelling of the performance of biological systems for sustainable developments in land use and the environment, agriculture and amenity, bioproduction processes and the food chain. The subject matter of the journal reflects the wide range and interdisciplinary nature of research in engineering for biological systems.

The technically extended papers should fulfil the following requirements: the paper should be significantly different from the Conference Paper, with greater scientific depth and content, in order to meet all the standards required by the Biosystems Engineering journal. The Title and the Abstract must be different from those of the conference paper, so that they can be differentiated and independently indexed in the various databases.
