Pedometrics 2009, Beijing 26--28 August 2009.
The biennial meeting of the Pedometrics commission is now a regular fixture, drawing together soil scientists with quantitative interests to discuss problems such as sampling, monitoring, the evaluation and use of models and spatial prediction.
Pedometrics 2009 will be the first of these meetings to take place in Asia. It is organized by Professor Yuanfang Huang and colleagues at the China Agriculture University, Beijing. The conference will tackle the usual wide range of topics, including sampling, geostatistics, pedodynamic modelling, space-time modelling, soil-landscape modelling and scaling issues. Prior to the conference Dick Brus and Martin Knotters from Wageningen will be teaching a course on "Sampling for Survey and Monitoring of Natural Resources".
The deadline for Abstracts is 30th April. For submission and more information, see
