Welcome!

The Organizing Committee has postponed the Global Conference on Sandy Soils until 30 May – 3 June 2021. Because the university is committed to minimizing the impact of COVID-19 on scientific research and collaboration, we decided to postpone the conference to 2021.

We would like to personally thank our attendees for their support in abstract submissions. Please be aware that if registration payment has been made, we will automatically be issuing a refund back onto the credit card they used for the original payment. Please also contact the hotels/dorms to cancel the room reservations at your earliest convenience.

Sandy soils are widespread throughout the world and used for a range of purposes (agriculture, forestry, rangeland). The conference will focus on all aspects of sandy soils including its properties, distribution, and management. There will be oral and poster sessions, a one-day field trip to the Central Sands Plain of Wisconsin, and ample sessions for discussion.

Deadline for Abstract submission is March 31, 2021. The papers from the conference will be published in the Progress of Soil Science Series (Springer).

The conference will be held at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Madison is the capital of the U.S. state of Wisconsin.

The University of Wisconsin–Madison is a public research university founded in 1848. It is the oldest and largest public university in the state. The main campus is located on the shores of Lake Mendota.

We look forward to welcoming you to Madison, Wisconsin, USA in May 2021!
