UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

The Coahuila Association of Speleology and University of Quintana Roo are pleased to invite you to participate in the International Congress of Speleology on Mayan Caves. It will be held on 25-27 May 2012 in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Additionally, the Bureau (governing board) of the International Union of Speleology (“UIS” by its French acronym) will meet in Mexico for the first time and immediately after the congress on 28-29 May. The Bureau members will also participate in the congress.  The UIS represents 60 countries from four continents.

The Federation of Latin American and Caribbean Speleological Associations (“FEALC” by its Spanish acronym) will also be at the congress. FEALC represents 11 countries including Mexico.  Other groups involved in the congress include the Mexican Union of Speleological Groups (“UMAE”), Mexico’s National Commission on Cave Diving and Speleology (“FMAS”), Brazilian Speleological Society (“SBE”), among others.

This event is a unique opportunity to tighten ties among the world’s speleological organizations, to learn of the sustainable projects that have been implemented in other parts of the world, and the work of “Quintana Roo Green and Supportive” in protecting subterranean resources.  We invite you to participate!
