2020 Editions

The soil ecosystem has still received too little attention by the scientific community, although the International Year on Soils in 2015 has considerably raised the awareness to protect, to study and to better understand its enormous potentials.


Due to the coronavirus pandemic of 2019/2020, the conferences were postponed to spring 2021!
The ICA conference will be held from 26 – 28 March 2021, followed by the ICSZ from 28 March – 02 April 2021 at Eurac Research headquarter (venue address: Viale Druso 1, 39100 Bozen/Bolzano, South Tyrol, ITALY)
During these conferences, we will be able to share our research on soil fauna and their ecology, from the lowland to the high mountains.


Soil biodiversity from the lowlands to the high mountains

Green Event

Sustainability is not just a modern term to use, but a responsibility. As we all have an impact on the environment, we want to provide you an event as green as possible. We are proud to tell you that the two conferences will be certified Green Events to keep the environmental impact as low as possible. Find more details here (in German or Italian only).
We further encourage everyone to use public transportation. We recommend you to get a Mobilcard which can be used with all buses, trains and several cable cars. Ask for it in your hotel (also called Guest Card).
