4th International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) Conference

May 7, 2024 – May 10, 2024 all-day

The 4th ISMC Conference (ISMC – International Soil Modeling Consortium) will be organized in Tianjin, China between May 7-10, 2024. Registration can be found at https://ismc-conference.tju.edu.cn/Registration, and you are welcome to visit the website at https://ismc-conference.tju.edu.cn/.

Soil is one of the most critical life-supporting resources, forming the foundation for food and fiber production, ecosystems, biodiversity, water, nutrients, energy, and more. The International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) is dedicated to uniting modelers and experimental soil scientists on the cutting edge of new technologies and approaches to characterize soils. The 4th ISMC Conference, “Advances in Modeling Soil System, Earth System Science, and Beyond”, is a scientific symposium that seeks to integrate and advance soil system modeling, Earth system science, and beyond.

1. Modeling soil processes in land surface modeling

2. On representing memory effects, hysteresis and feedbacks in the critical zone

3. Toward characterizing and modeling the temporal variability of effective soil properties

4. How to include root hydraulic architecture in soil models to simulate root water uptake

5. Saturation kinetics in soils: stoichiometric limits, mineral-organic interactions, and microbial explicit models

6. Constraining soil hydrologic processes using in-situ and remote sensing observations

7. Data fusion for characterization of soil states and heterogeneity

8. Application of machine learning and non-linear methods for spatial data analysis

9. General session of any model related research
