INVITATION TO ATTEND
Dear Colleagues and Friends: As President of the European Confederation of Soil Science Societies (ECSSS) and of EUROSOIL 2012 it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend this important scientific and social Event hosted in Bari, a city located on the sunny and attractive southern Adriatic coast, and surrounded by a beautiful countryside very rich in cultural and artistic heritage and historical monuments. The International Congress EUROSOIL 2012 is the 4th of the Series after the very successful ones held in Reading, UK, in 2000, Freiburg, Germany, in 2004, and Wien, Austria, in 2008. The general theme of EUROSOIL 2012 “SOIL SCIENCE FOR THE BENEFIT OF MANKIND AND ENVIRONMENT” aims to encompass several aspects and to offer ample opportunity to explore many issues of current Soil Sciences. The main objective of the scientific programme and structure of the Congress is to provide an interactive forum of exchange of ideas by bringing together and establishing durable and strict relationships among older and younger soil scientists and researchers, technical and professional operators, industry and administrative representatives, policy makers and regulators operating in the field of Soil Sciences. The scientific programme of EUROSOIL 2012 is structured in 13 general topics that include 83 symposia and 16 workshops focused on the variety and complexity of Soil Science disciplines. Further, a number of roundtables, open debates, short courses and technical and business meetings will enrich the Congress programme. I wish to acknowledge and express my heartily thanks to all members of the Local, National and Scientific Committees and, in particular, to all the Conveners and Co-Conveners of Symposia, Workshops and other Congress Events for the instrumental, hard and challenging work they are doing in developing and promoting advanced attractive topics that represent the backbone of EUROSOIL 2012. I am confident that EUROSOIL 2012 will be extremely attractive, informative and memorable, and look forward to welcoming and meeting you in Bari in July 2012 for a unique, week-long, pleasant and unforgettable experience in a highly stimulating environment.
