This is an exciting time for the STARS CDT, a unique opportunity to bring together all its PhD students and supervisors to celebrate the diversity and depth of soil science research in the UK today. We will meet in the Low Wood Bay Hotel on the banks of Windermere.
The conference will be structured around the four STARS themes, with each being introduced by an internationally recognised speaker:
· Understanding the soil root interface
· Soils and the delivery of ecosystem services
· Resilience and response of soil functions in relation to global changes
· Modelling the soil ecosystem at different spatial & temporal scales
The aims of the conference are to celebrate the successes of STARS students and provide an opportunity for further strengthening of ties between all those involved, and creating new ones. It provides a platform for students to showcase their research and reflect upon how it fits into the wider soil science picture and beyond. The conference will include oral & poster presentations along with workshops and time to network and build new links and collaborations.
Further information will be posted on this page as it becomes available. If you want to know more about the conference please contact the STARS office.
