Description

The conference has been postponed due to COVID-19. 

Read the message from the conference organisers.

This highly successful interdisciplinary biennial conference series is the most important international meeting that concentrates on the practical application of karst science. Geologists, engineers, and geographers, who study how and where karst develops and how sinkholes form, interact with engineers and planners, who apply this information to building and maintaining society’s infrastructure while protecting our environment.

The conference is managed by the National Cave and Karst Research Institute, which will organise this exceptional 2021 meeting in Puerto Rico, one of the premier karst regions of the world.

Conference topics include:

  • Karst Development & Mapping,
  • Pro-Active and Remedial Engineering in Karst Terrain,
  • Karst Water Resource Management and more.

Optional Short Courses will be offered on April 13, 2021, and Field Trips on April 12 and 16, 2021.
