Session 1: Global perspectives (invited speakers only)
Session 3: Methods 1: Visualising SOM
3a: Visualising SOM at the soil pore scale
3b: Spatial variability of SOM concentration, composition, and persistence
3c: Mapping and monitoring of soil organic matter
Session 4: Methods 2: Quantifying pools and fluxes of SOM
4a: Mass spectrometry – The key to the soil organic matter ‘Black Box’
4b: What is humified organic matter?

Session 6: Soil Health 2: The role of decomposition
6a: SOM decomposition: links between carbon and nutrient cycling
6b: Managing soil organic matter decomposition and stabilization for carbon sequestration and improved soil health
6c: SOM in rice paddy systems
All accepted abstracts will be published in the proceedings.
In addition, selected papers will be published in special issues in “European Journal of Soil Science” and/or “Soil Use and Management”, both from Wiley-Blackwell of the British Society of Soil Science: http://www.soils.org.uk/publications.
