IUSS Alert (July 2017)

Lars J. Munkholm

It is summertime in the Northern Hemisphere – this means for many of us that it is time to recharge the batteries after a busy semester and/or field work season. Holidays play a key role in this respect – but it is also high season to get recharged professionally via meetings, workshops and conferences. The recently held ISTRO branch conference in Croatia is prime example of this where about 100 participants from 25 countries met and discussed "Sustainability challenges in agroecosystems" (see report below). Upcoming meetings in Nigeria and Iran are other examples.

Next year, the 21st ISTRO Conference in Paris, September 24-27, 2018 will be a key opportunity for you to get updated on Soil and Tillage Research. This ISTROINFO includes updates on the conference (see below). Our young members should pay special attention to the opportunity of getting an ISTRO scholarship to attend the conference, as detailed below. ISTRO will again support four scholarships for the ISTRO conference; the Cees van Ouwerkerk scholarship is open to young researchers from any country and the three other scholarships are open to young researchers from all countries except those classified as being "high-income."

The ISTRO conference will also be the time for changes in the ISTRO board. The President-elect becomes President and newly elected members are included in the Board. The elections will – as usual – be conducted electronically before the 2018 conference. This time there are 2 open ordinary Board positions and President-elect position (see below).

To ensure that you are eligible for scholarships, to vote and participate in the organization please ensure that your membership fees are up-to-date. Branches needs also to pay attention to this. If you are unsure about your membership status; simply email Treasurer Steve Prior (Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.
