We plan an edited proceedings in the form of a book with Springer. For this, we expect short chapters (typically 1500-2500 words or ~6 pages A4 singlesided 12 point) which we will then group according to Major Themes. In terms of timescale, we aim that all chapters should be submitted to us during the spring, before 30th May.¬†The book project strongly complements the ERL special issue and will allow us to include a wider set of INI science, especially with newly developing ideas that would not yet be ready for the rigorous peer review that ERL will demand.

N2013 Conference in¬†Kampala, Uganda
The International Nitrogen Initiative (INI), African Nitrogen Centre,¬†International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA)¬†and Makerere University College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences¬†hosted the 6th International Nitrogen Conference (N2013) in Kampala, Uganda.
The 6th international conference came after the successful and influential conferences in the Netherlands, USA, China, Brazil and India see www.initrogen.org. The common objective of these conferences is the design of more productive, economic, and sustainable food and energy production systems to meet the challenges of the growing global population in a changing environment.
The International Nitrogen Initiative is a global effort to optimize nitrogen’s beneficial role in sustainable food production and to minimize nitrogen’s negative effects on human health and the environment.
The 6th International Nitrogen Conference (N2013) was held on 18 – 22 November 2013 at Speke Resort and Conference Center in Kampala, Uganda under the theme¬†‚ÄėLet us aim for Just Enough N: Perspectives on how to get there for ‚Äútoo much‚ÄĚ and ‚Äútoo little‚ÄĚ Regions‚Äô.¬†Over 150 delegates from more than 30 countries attended. These delegates included scientists, agriculturalists, environmentalists, industrialists, economists and policy-makers. The conference had detailed discussions on various sub-themes linked to nitrogen management, including food security, human health, agriculture and the water cycle. The conference culminated into a “Kampala Declaration” ¬†which¬†has key messages for governments, international fora, business and civil society – on the challenges and the options for nitrogen management. A “Press Release” was published in international media. Locally, the conference was captured in one of the dailies.
