Hybrid Event

25-28 September 2024

Nanjing, China

The Global Symposium on Soil Information & Data (GSID24) will take place in Nanjing (China) between 25 and 28 September 2024. The event is co-organised by the Food and Agriculture Organization, the Global Soil Partnership and the Institute of Soil Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISSCAS) will be held in Nanjing, China, September 25-28, 2024.

This symposium will gather stakeholders, policymakers, researchers, and practitioners in an international forum to discuss the key role of comparable and reliable soil data and information in tackling global challenges, such as food security, climate change, and sustainable soil management.

The main goal of GSID24 is to foster the development and implementation of policies based on robust soil data, increasing the effectiveness of global initiatives to achieve sustainable development and climate resilience.

The deadline for abstract submission is 31 May 2024.

4th Ecology of Soil Microorganisms Conference 2022

The Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences (a member of the HoliSoils consortium) is pleased to invite you to the 4th conference on the Ecology of Soil Microorganisms to be held in Prague, Czech Republic on 19-23 June 2022. This will be the fourth conference in the triennial symposium series on this topic, last organised in Helsinky in 2018. The conferences were attended by more than 400 participants from all over the world.

The conference is planned as an interdisciplinary platform that should offer as much interaction as possible between the various topics of microbial ecology. This includes questions concerning individual microbes, microbial communities as well as their interactions with the environment and other soil biota. The organisers aim to link current “omics” molecular methods, such as metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and metaproteomics, with approaches based on soil chemical and biochemical analyses, exploration of soil fauna and plant ecology.

The other important goal of the conference is a broad scope covering the ecology of all microbes: bacteria and fungi, as well as archaea and protozoa. The Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences aims to bring together experts from all these disciplines in a meeting where all can benefit from interactions and thus promote research in the field of soil ecology.

Important dates:

  • Abstract submission: March 15, 2022
  • Early bird registration deadline: March 15, 2022
  • Young scientist grants application: March 15, 2022
  • Final programme announcement: May, 2022
  • Conference June 19-23, 2022
