Positively evaluated contributions will be presented in thematic working groups at the annual conference and, if necessary, published in the conferenceproceedings after the reviewers' comments have been incorporated.

The best evaluated contributions are awarded the Gewisola Prize for Best Papers and can be published in the German Journal of Agricultural Economics after an accelerated review process if they meet the criteria.
