Dear colleagues and friends,
Thank you for your support and participation in the 4th Global Soil Security Conference (GSS 2020).
The world is going through a very challenging time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is affecting all of us in some way or another. With these challenges come some difficult decisions, yet our focus must always remain on uniting for the health of our friends.
Considering these exceptional circumstances, the GSS 2020 organizing committee has decided to cancel the 4th Global Soil Security Conference (GSS 2020), scheduled to take place in Seoul, Korea, from October 12 to 15, 2020. When the circumstance is free of COVID-19 pandemic, we will re-initiate hosting the GSS Conference in Korea.
Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our friends is paramount, and serves as the reason for our decision to cancel this year’s GSS. We would like to extend our gratitude to your support at this difficult time. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during this unprecedented public health crisis.
The submitted abstracts will be withdrawn and the registration will be cancelled.
The GSS 2020 secretariat will be available until July 31st, 2020 for your inquiries. If you might need to contact the GSS 2020 organizing committee later, please contact Prof. Sung-Chul KIM (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We wish you and your families well and hope you and your loved ones are in the best possible health.
We hope to meet you again at the Global Soil Security Conference in a future year soon.
