UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

The National Cave and Karst Management Symposium (NCKMS) is now accepting abstracts for its next meeting, which will be held on 4-8 November 2013 at the National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCKRI) in Carlsbad, New Mexico. This is the 20th of this internationally attended conference series. For details about the conference and to submit an abstract, go to the Symposium website

Please note the following deadlines. They are a little earlier than usual for NCKMS because by popular demand we plan to have the proceedings ready in time for distribution at the symposium, instead of after which has been the norm.
  • March 15, 2013: Abstract due
  • April 1, 2013: Authors notified of abstract acceptance
  • June 1, 2013: Draft manuscripts due
  • August 14, 2013: Authors provided with review and comments
  • September 9, 2013: Final papers due
Anyone needing financial assistance to attend NCKMS, especially students, are encouraged to apply for a George N. Huppert Scholarship. For information about the scholarship and how to apply, visit this site
On-line registration for the conference will be posted soon.
