ISMC - The International Soil Modeling Consortium

Call for Abstracts

The WCSS has been held quadrennially since 1927 as a scientific meeting in the field of soil science.

On behalf of the British Society of Soil Science and the International Union of Soil Sciences, we are delighted to invite soil scientists from around the world to submit abstracts for oral presentations and posters. A list of sessions with short summaries of their content is given in the PDF which you are able to download from this page. 

The deadline for abstract submissions is the  (extended to) 30th November 2021.
Acceptance notification will be in January 2022. Early bird registration before March 15, 2022.



ISMC - linking soil modeling experts

The International Soil Modeling Consortium aims to integrate and advance soil systems modeling, data gathering,and observational capabilities, through:

  • bringing together leading experts in modelling soil processes within all major soil disciplines
  • addressing  major scientific gaps in describing key processes and their long term impacts with respect to the different functions and ecosystem services provided by soil;
  • promoting integration of soil modelling expertise in neighboring disciplines (climate, land surface, eco, hydro, and other models)
  • performing soil model intercomparison studies at local to global scales
  • consolidating soil and other data platforms for modeling purposes
  • integrating societal and environmental considerations into soil and ecosystem functioning

ISMC respects, values, and welcomes all people and their differences, and we are committed to action that fosters diversity, equity, and inclusion in all activities.
We trust ISMC members and visitors to ISMC activities to show that same respect.
