Soil erosion caused by water and/or wind is a continuing problem throughout the world that threatens the capacity of the Earth to produce food, fiber, and renewable sources of energy for an ever-increasing population. Additionally, eroded sediment is a major air and water pollutant, causing many detrimental off-site impacts. This symposium provided a forum for participants to discuss the current status and the future of soil erosion research.
The symposium program included volunteered presentations, invited presentations, a technical tour, panel discussions, and discussion groups. Over 180 volunteered presentations were split between oral lecture and one-on-one poster format. All presenters provided a 2-4 page single-spaced final camera-ready paper for publication in the symposium proceedings. Over 200 erosion researchers and soil conservationists from 30 countries attended the meeting.
The symposium invited several world-renowned soil erosion scientists as keynote speakers, as well as moderators of discussion panels, to provide their viewpoints on the current status of soil erosion research and directions needed in the future. Additionally, discussion groups composed of all participants at the conference also address these same issues. The symposium will prepare and publish a document summarizing recommendations from these discussions, and provide it to all of the co-sponsoring organizations. See the program overview, full advance program, and final on-site program documents for details on the Symposium program and speakers.

The Soil Erosion Research Symposium was held at the same time and location as the ASAE-sponsored International Symposium on Preferential Flow. Registrants for each symposium had cross-over privileges to attend sessions of interest in the concurrent conference.
