4th Global Soil Security Conference 2023, June 26-30, 2023 | Seoul, Korea

It is our pleasure to announce the 4th Global Soil Security Conference 2023 in Seoul, Korea, hosted by the Korean Society of Soil Science and Fertilizer (KSSSF).

This conference was planned to be held in 2020 but delayed to 2023 due to the COVID19 Pandemic crisis.

Theme of GSS 2023 is ‘Global Soil Security: Beyond the Soil (BTS).’

Soil security has become the central dogma of the sustainable soil management that should integrate the roles of soil functions for soil health, ecosystem services, climate change and human health. We will tailor the GSS 2023 programs specifically to connecting soil security to the theme of GSS 2023.

The series of GSS conferences, being held in the Texas A&M University, USA (2015), Institute Curie, Paris, France (2016) and University of Sydney, Australia (2018), were bestowed by big attendance and great success.

Your participations are instrumental to our success of GSS 2023.

I look forward to seeing you in June 2023 at the GSS 2023 Conference.

Jae E. Yang

President of GSS 2023
