Centennial of the IUSS 2024

The International Union of Soil Science (IUSS) will celebrate its foundation centennial in 2024 in cooperation with the Italian Soil Science Society (SISS). The event will empower the linkages with different disciplines, policy makers, stakeholders, institutions, and associations to effectively address civil society needs within agriculture, forestry, environment, urban planning, energy, education, and other societal issues. The celebration will occur on May 19th and will be followed by two days of congress, with plenary and parallel scientific sessions. Both soil scientists and specialists from other disciplines will participate to each session, focusing on past achievements and future challenges. The congress will be followed by technical/scientific excursions that will range from short local to long trips, spanning from Alps to Sicily. A pre-congress visit to Villa Lubin in Rome, the historical place where the IUSS was founded, is scheduled on 18 May.

The call for session is already open (https://centennialiuss2024.org/) and welcomes the proposals of scientists of all the disciplines that collaborate with soil sciences.
