Conference Description:

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 6th Symposium on Phosphorus in Soils and Plants (PSP6). The symposium will be hosted by the KU Leuven, Belgium and will take place from the 10th to the 13th of September 2018.
The symposium will be the sixth edition of a long standing and successful series starting in Beijing in 2000 and including subsequent editions in Perth (2003), Uberlandia (2006), Beijing (2010) and Montpellier (2014).

As the slogan (From Molecular Scale to Ecosystems) suggests, it will be a multidisciplinary event, gathering scientists from fields such as plant physiology and genetics, system biology, ecology, biochemistry, agronomy and soil sciences from all across the world. Expect to learn quite a bit and have some interesting discussions.
The symposium will deal with such pressing matters as phosphorus scarcity, which can limit crop production in many agronomical ecosystems, and management of excess phosphorus, which gives rise to problems of eutrophication mostly in aquatic ecosystems. The scope of the topics will range from fundamental insights of phosphorus biogeochemical cycles to applications such as crop breeding, fertilizer development, soil management and performance of environmental impact assessments.
The conference will be held in Leuven, a cosy city founded in the Middle Ages which is located in the centre of Belgium, a region renowned for its beer breweries. Multiple sites in the city still hold attractive buildings from medieval and early modern times. Leuven is also a perfect base for visiting other touristic cities in Belgium such as Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges. The region is without doubt well worth visiting.

More information can be found on the website: I very much hope you will attend!
