Today sees the start of the 20th World Congress of Soil Science at the ICC in Jeju, South Korea. The Congress marks the 90th Aniversary of the IUSS and takes place from Sunday 8th June until Friday 13th June 2014. Ian and Kathryn from the Society office will be there manning our stand (Number 20) within the Exhibition Hall - so if you are there pop by and say hello!
It will be a busy week as the Society prepares and presents it's bid to host the 2022 Congress in Glasgow on Thursday afternoon (12th June), coupled with an invitation only Members' event on Tuesday night (10th June). We really appreciate all the support and hard work of our Members and Staff to reach this point. Our bid to host the World Congress in 2022 started four years ago at the Brisbane Congress and it is hard to believe we are almost at the end of the bidding journey!
