Scientific Sessions Information

The call for sessions is now closed.

The Eurosoil 2020 organising committee has received a great number of proposals for Scientific Sessions. The Call for Sessions is now closed and all proposals are being reviewed. The chosen sessions will form the bulk of the Eurosoil 2020 Programme and more details will be released soon.

In line with the theme “Connecting People and Soil”, we look forward to sessions addressing the soil-related topics of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. The Eurosoil 2020 Programme will be structured around, but not limited to, these SDGs.

Scientists and speakers are invited to participate in the chosen Scientific Sessions by submitting their contributions. The Call for Contributions submission system will open on 2 December 2019. You will be able to access the system from this location as soon as it is available.

Please sign up below to be included in our mailing list and receive all of the latest information as soon as it is available.  If you have any specific questions about the Call for Contributions process in the meantime, please contact us by e-mailing:

Eurosoil is looking for innovative contributions during the Scientific Sessions

To foster exchanges between soil scientists and stakeholders, we encourage both classical and non-conventional contributions during the sessions and workshops.

Contributions during workshops, events, and other types of presentations can be proposed according to the session information in the Eurosoil 2020 Programme, providing an added-value with respect to the conference theme.

Terms & Conditions

The Eurosoil organising committee is steering the general process and each programme theme is led by at least one of its members.

A scientific theme committee is responsible for each programme theme and will manage the Calls for Sessions and Contributions under the supervision and coordination of the Eurosoil organising committee. The scientific theme committee will review the contributions, with possible feedback to the contributor, and can eventually propose splitting or merging contributions.

The Eurosoil organising committee will define the final conference structure and manage the call for abstracts/contributions.
