Austin International Conference on Soil Modeling

March 29 – April 1, 2016, Austin, Texas


Goals of this Workshop:

To solidify the concept and operation of an international soil modelling consortium (ISMC), by bringing together leading experts in modelling soil processes across disciplines, organizations and institutions; addressing major scientific gaps in describing key soil processes and their long term ecosystem impacts; and identifying interactions with other relevant modeling platforms and scientific communities.
