Introduction
 
               It is well known that soil provides almost all basic requirements for life. It supplies essential elements for plant growth and reproduction. Healthy soil underpins crop production and functioning of a wide range of ecosystem services and environment. Over a long period of time, soils have been extensively utilized to serve several purposes. As a result, at present, an emerging of land degradation and land use conflict is remarkable. Though people know the increasing challenge to achieving future food security, they seem not to do enough to conserve and protect this precious resource from degradation and declining of soil productivity. Moreover, this also has brought about unprecedented changes of the environment such as global warming or climate changes. Synergistic approach as well as integrated sustainable management is a deal for scientists and extension workers to put in place and should be agreed by decision makers and land users. To achieve such deal, they basically require tangible contribution of all stakeholders. Thus, it is the duty of soil scientists to call up on the implementation of appropriate technologies, exchanging of successful experience and knowledge sharing. In addition, the policy or decision makers need to find the ways to public participation for taking effective measures to conserve our soil resources. How to do this is one of challenging debates among the participants in the conference.
               
                Land Development Department (LDD), a long-standing government agency under the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives of Thailand who successfully runs a well known “Volunteer Soil-Doctor Program” and promotes sustainable soil management for food security and well being of farmers, would cordially invite scientists from developing and developed countries, academia, practitioners, policy makers, and interested persons to participate in the “International Conference on Sustainable Uses of Soil in Harmony with Food Security”. This conference is a part of activities to celebrate the International Year of Soils (IYS) as declared by the United Nations, aiming to welcome contribution of oral presentations and posters from delegates to exchange views and experience in relation to sustainable uses of soils to secure food production of our societies.
