ISMC Conference 2024

ISMC Conference 2024

Soil is one of the most critical life-supporting resources, providing the foundation for food and fibre production, ecosystem services, biodiversity, water, nutrients, energy, among others. Nevertheless, soil resources are pressured by increasing food demand and climate change, which call for sustainable management practices and innovative research. Soil are essential resources to be protected and managed to meet UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The 4th ISMC Conference is a science symposium that aims to integrate and advance soil system modeling, Earth system science, and beyond, through:
 • 1. bringing together leading experts in modelling soil processes within all major soil disciplines;
 • 2. addressing major scientific gaps in describing key processes and their long term impacts with respect to the different functions and ecosystem services provided by soil;
 • 3. promoting integration of soil modelling expertise in neighboring disciplines (climate, land surface, eco, hydro, and other models);
 • 4. performing soil model intercomparison studies at local to global scales;
 • 5. consolidating soil and other data platforms for modeling purposes;
 • 6. integrating societal and environmental considerations into soil and ecosystem functioning.

The theme of the 4th ISMC Conference is "Advances in Modelling Soil System Science, Earth System Science, and Beyond." We cordially invite you to register and participate in this grand event.



 • 1. 汇集国内外土壤学科相关学者开展交流讨论;
 • 2. 解决土壤关键过程和生态服务等方面存在的重大科学问题;
 • 3. 促进土壤模拟与其他学科(如气候、陆面过程、生态、水文等)的耦合;
 • 4. 开展土壤模型在不同尺度(如区域到全球尺度)的对比研究;
 • 5. 整合用于构建土壤模型的多源数据平台;
 • 6. 探讨社会经济等要素与土壤生态系统功能的关联。

本次会议的主题是土壤模拟的最新进展 (Advances in Modelling Soil System Science, Earth System Science, and Beyond)。我们诚挚地邀请您注册参加此次盛会。
