The ASSW (Alberta Soil Science Workshop) and the CSSS (Canadian Society of Soil Science) will be holding a joint conference in 2022. The dates were postponed from 2021 to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
Technical session proposals will be requested soon for areas related to application of novel materials in soil science, land reclamation, global change and sustainable agriculture
Edmonton, AlbertaVenue: University of Alberta campus (the Lister Conference Centre)
Oral and poster presentations include: keynote papers focussed on the workshop theme, technical papers within four distinct fields, and volunteer papers. Currently the five technical groups are: Land Use, Soil Fertility, Land Reclamation, Forest, Riparian and Wetland Soils and Pedogenesis and Soil Inventory.
The Alberta Soil Science Workshop is held to facilitate regional interaction among professionals in soil science. Typically 100 to 150 participants gather for a 1 to 2 day program.
Workshop participants include a diversity of professionals from private industry (e.g. consultants in agronomy, pedology, reclamation, remediation, and environmental services; chemists from commercial analytical laboratories), government (federal, provincial, municipal) and academia (universities and colleges).
The workshop is graduate student-friendly, providing an excellent opportunity to enhance presentation skills in a supportive setting (travel bursaries are available for out-of-town students; awards are made for the best student presentations).
