4th - 5th September 2012
Sutton Bonington Campus, University of Nottingham, Loughborough, UK
The 2012 annual meeting of the British Society of Soil Science will be hosted by the University of Nottingham. The meeting will focus on the required contributions and potential opportunities for soil science with respect to Global Food Security. The forecasted increasingly variable weather patterns will influence the environment and its ability to support sustainable food production. Major challenges include water scarcity, a decrease availability of key inputs to food production, managing carbon and differing local impacts of climate change. Soil science is at the heart of all these issues. The meeting will consist of two days with four sessions strongly related to the main theme and a an un-themed session where presentations from any aspect of soil science are encouraged.
Prizes will be awarded to the best student presentation at the conference
This 2 day meeting will invite oral and poster abstracts under the following themes:
-soil management and crop production
-soil protection, conservation and remediation
-soil science and human health
-managing soil science and climate change
The meeting will provide opportunities for Society Members to present there work in both the formal conference setting and more informally at the conference dinner which will be held at the National Space Centre.
