UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

Dear Friends,

As previously announced, the 16th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst (more commonly called The Sinkhole Conference) was rescheduled by the COVID-19 pandemic to 12-16 April 2021 at its same location in San Juan, Puerto Rico. However, we have now published the proceedings as NCKRI Symposium 8, which is available on this page. While you are there you are welcome to download other NCKRI conference proceedings and reports at no cost. If you have difficulty accessing the website (which we are updating in part to improve access), you may also download the proceedings from the Karst Information Portal.

The postponement of the conference allows the opportunity for you to submit papers to present and publish in the second edition of these conference proceedings, which will be posted with the conference next year. Here are the deadlines for papers for the second edition:
* July 24, 2020: Abstract due
* July 29, 2020: Authors notified of abstract acceptance
* October 19, 2020: Draft papers due
* November 23, 2020: Authors provided with review and comments
* December 21, 2020: Final papers due
