WRB Summer 2019

Globalization itself and solving the global environmental issues, as well as the unification of research and teaching on the global level require harmonization of technical languages, such as the terminology and classifications used in soil science. Rules of soil characterization and classification are an important part of such a professional language. As so many „languages” – national systems are used in the world the common Lingua Franca is needed to understand each other. World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB) is probably the best proposal to facilitate international exchange of information in soil science. WRB summer workshop is organized under the auspices of IUSS Working Group WRB by experts organizing the soil classification trainings for nearly 10 years. The aim of event is to help the beginners using WRB or enhance skills in soil classification during one day indoor and 3 days intensive field activities. The venue is in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city of Toruń. Students, PhD students and young researches are particularly invited (but senior researchers are also welcomed).

Wageningen Soil Conference 2019 (WSC2019)

August 27-30th, 2019, Wageningen, The Netherlands. Wageningen University & Research is delighted to invite you to join us at the 4th edition of the Wageningen Soil Conference. As in previous editions, the aim is to discuss the importance of soils. In the 2019 edition, the focus will be on “Understanding soil functions: from ped to planet”. To do this we will adopt a new style of conference, with traditional conference talks in the mornings, followed by a range of scientific and interactive topic masterclasses in the afternoons. Masterclasses will include a range of topics linking to four themes: 1) Soil functions for society; 2) Innovative methods for measuring soil functions; 3) Modelling & mapping of soil functions across scales; 4) Can we understand synergies and trade-offs between soil functions. We also invite you to offer to lead a course as part of this week. Finally, if you would like to plan a side event or meeting in the afternoon, we can provide you with th e venue. Get together with colleagues and discuss future project proposal ideas or have a project meeting, as part of the conference.

First Circular, plus Call for Masterclasses and more info are available at http://www.wur.eu/wageningensoilconference2019.

WASWAC 4th World Conference

Joint internatioanl conference of WASWAC 4th WC, ISCO-20 and SCSI-4th IC .  Managing Soil and Water Resources for Climate-Smart Agriculture Toward Global Food and Livelihood Security.

The World Association of Soil and Water Conservation (WASWAC) , International Soil Conservation Organization (ISCO), and Soil Conservation Society of India (SCSI)) will hold a joint international conference in 2019. This will be WASWAC’s 4 th World Conference, ISCO’s 20 th International Congress, and SCSI 4 th International Conference. SCSI will host the joint conference and other prominent international scientific and professional organizations have been invited to be co-sponsors.

Natural resources are critically important components of the earth’s life support system. SCSI has selected the Theme as “Managing Soil and Water Resources for Climate-Smart Agriculture Toward Global Food and Livelihood Security”. This theme will build on WASWAC’s and ISCO’s earlier accomplishments which encompassed the necessity and contributions of soil and water conservation and land husbandry toward sustained economic, especially agricultural growth which is paramount for food security. The unabated degradation of global natural resources exacerbates the scarcity of productive soils and the increasing prevalence of droughts adds unprecedented pressures on water resources. With the topical theme of Managing Soil and Water Resources for Climate Smart Agriculture Toward Global Food and Livelihood Security, this International Conference will be organized from 5 th-9 th November, 2019 at New Delhi, India. The conference will focus on the protection and conservation of land and natural resources for sustainable use and development. The target groups include scientists, researchers and academicians with multidisciplinary expertise, outreach and extension professionals, engineers, land users including farmers, planners and policy makers, students, NGO’s, and other stakeholders who are active or interested in the states of art and science of natural resources management. We feel proud in inviting your active participation and valued deliberations to make this international conference a successful event.

International Soil Classification Congress

We are pleased to welcome to Mexico for the VI International Soil Classification Congress 
(April 16 to 24, 2020). This congress is part of the events organized by Commission 1.4 of the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) and is composed of a five-day field workshop beginning in Cuatro Ciénegas and ending with a three-day conference in Querétaro.
Our main objective is to provide a forum to continue the works and discussions from previous meetings about soil classification systems as a medium to communicate soil functions and management. The particular aim is to present options for conserving and improving soils in areas with subhumid, semiarid, and arid climates. For that reasons we invite leading soil scientists, students and professionals interested in analyzing in depth the indicators, indexes, and models that will improve soil classification as a tool for soil conservation, global change mitigation, and communication to stakeholders at multiple cartography scales.
