UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

The International Congress of Speleology will be held next year in France. In addition to its usual status as the world’s most significant speleological conference, next year it will also be the main event for the International Year of Caves and Karst. However, some planning for the congress is delayed by COVID-19 and your patience and understanding are appreciated.

Because of those delays, the deadline for abstracts is postponed until 31 August 2020. You will definitely want to send your abstracts and papers. The proceedings of the congresses are the largest single conference contribution to speleology with over 18,000 pages of information since the first congress in 1953. To download any or all of those proceedings, visit this link.
