The international meeting in soil science "Soil Interfaces for Sustainable Development" will be held at McGill University from July 5 to 10, 2015. The conference is a joint event hosted by three organizations. The ISOM2015 symposium (International Symposium on Interactions of Soil Minerals with Organic Components and Microorganisms) of the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) will be held in conjunction with the annual meetings of the Canadian Society of Soil Science (CSSS) and the Association Québécoise de Spécialistes en Sciences du Sol (AQSSS).

The Centre SÈVE recently welcomed three students from the Edamus international master’s program in sustainable management of food quality. The Centre SÈVE is an associate member of this European program and we hosted a number of interns since 2012. Mai Thi Tran, Vaiva Laucyte and Nadia Shaheen Bibi Koyratty have just completed a three-month internship in Carole Beaulieu’s laboratory at the Université de Sherbrooke.
