Young Soil Scientists days 2014

Every year the Soil Science Society of Belgium is organizing a Day for the Young Soil Scientists.
The idea is that young soil scientists from Belgium get to know each other, learn about new research initiatives undertaken by the different research groups, both in Belgium and abroad.
Last year we have developed a new concept for the Young Scientists Day so as to accommodate many more participants and hence make the meeting more attractive for all.

Venue: Royal Academy, Hertogstraat 1, Brussels
Date: 26/02/2014 from 13:30 – 17:30

All research groups are invited to send abstracts for ONE oral presentation and as many as possible posters.

The scientific programme

  • A limited number of oral presentations: one presentation per research group
    (15 min. presentation + 5 min. discussion each)
  • A session of synthetic poster presentations; there is no limit to the number of poster presentations!
    (3 min. each = 2 slides each)
    Also this year’s M.Sc. thesis students are warmly encouraged to make a poster on their actual thesis work, with special attention to the research question they are trying to answer and the methods of their research. The results may be subject of a paper during the Young Scientists day Anno 2015!
  • Poster session with drinks served.

Subscriptions and abstracts

Subscription for this event is possible until Friday January 31, 2014 by filling out the online registration form.
