World congress explores research, multi-disciplinary science of soils

The scientific program for the World Congress of Soil Science (WCSS), July 9-15, 2006 in Philadelphia, PA at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, will focus on multi-disciplinary soil science advances under the theme, "Frontiers of Soil Science: Technology and the Information Age." The event is being hailed by organizers as being a "unique convergence of the world's leading professionals in soil science." Many years of planning have gone into preparations for the 18th World Congress of Soil Science (WCSS). This will be the first World Congress of Soil Science held in the U.S. since 1960.

Presentations organized into topical symposia will be given by thousands of soil scientists from around the world on such topics as GIS technologies, land-use analysis, environmental soil biology, plant/soil interaction, hazardous waste remediation, precision agriculture, and more.

Two key symposia include, "Global Priorities of Soil Science Research," features leading soil scientists from North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and New Zealand who will discuss soil science research needs; "Innovation, Speculation, and 'Disneyfication' in Soil Science Education," keynote speakers will discuss soil science education with examples from the U.S. and Australia. For more on the symposia being presented, go to: http://www.colostate.edu/programs/IUSS/18wcss/program.html

Several distinguished scientists will be participating in the opening ceremony on Monday, July 10, including Dr. Michael Clegg, the Foreign Secretary of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences; Ambassador Kenneth Quinn, who will recognize the 2006 World Food Prize Laureate; and Dr. Ed De Mulder, Past President of the International Union of Geological Sciences, who will discuss the Year of Planet Earth initiative, which the United Nations recently approved for 2008. The plenary address will be given by Dr. Jeffrey D. Sach
