A WARM WELCOME TO CAIRNS

The Soil Science Australia and the New Zealand Society of Soil Science Joint Conference, in association with ASPAC was to be held in Cairns, Australia 29 November – 4 December 2020.

Considering the recent outbreaks and ongoing travel restrictions, the Conference Organising Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the Joint Conference. This decision has been made with the health and wellbeing of our members, delegates, and sponsors as our highest priority.

The good news is that the Conference is only postponed and will therefore still go head. The new dates are 27 June – 2 July 2021 in Cairns.
All 2020 abstract submissions and registrations will be automatically transferred to 2021 Conference.

In addition, the Conference Organising Committee are planning a webinar event on Friday 4th of December 2020 to celebrate World Soils Day. More information on this will be available in due course.

For those who have submitted an abstract, these will continue to be reviewed in the next month and you will be notified of the status of your abstract end of August. We will reopen the abstract submission portal for those who did not submit an abstract, but still wish to do so and be considered to present at the 2021 Conference.

We hope that you, your families, friends and colleagues are continuing to remain safe and well. Whilst these times are challenging for all, we are looking forward to you joining us when we can hold the conference in Cairns next year. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Stay safe and healthy!
