DeepKarst 2016: registration is open!
This conference focuses on hypogene karst, its origin and implications for management, economic resources, and groundwater ecosystems. Papers from 10 countries
 have been received. Look for an announcement soon on optional field trips that will be offered. NCKRI will host this conference on 11-14 April 2016 in Carlsbad, New Mexico. To register and for more details, visit http://deepkarst.org/ .
50 th Annual Meeting of North-Central Section of the Geological Society of America
Champaign, Illinois, USA
April 18-19, 2016
Symposium T19. Characterization of Karst of the Midwestern U.S.: Problems with Unstable Ground and Groundwater Quality. Samuel V. Panno, Illinois State Geological Survey, ; Walton R. Kelly, Illinois State Water Survey, .
This session will include papers describing methods for characterizing karst areas of the Midwestern US, and problems associated with the formation of cover-collapse sinkholes,
 cave collapse, and groundwater contamination from point and non-point sources. Sources include contaminants associated with urban and rural environments including road salt, pharmaceuticals and personal care products, animal waste, septic effluent and N-fertilizers.
Hypogea 2017: 2 nd circular now available
Dear Colleagues

We know that there are too many things to do and too little time to do all those things....
But the deadline for the abstracts of HYPOGEA 2017, International Congress of Speleology in Artificial Cavities is only two months away now. As we had informed both in our web page and in our 1. Circular , HYPOGEA 2017 Congress will be held on March 6-8, 2017 and the sessions will be focused on four main topics:

- Explorations
- Cultural and economic importance of the artificial cavities
- Hazards, remediation and rehabilitation
- Survey, mapping and dating techniques

After the congress there will be several excursions to various underground cities, rock churches, cave dwellings and geologically interesting points of Cappadocia.

The important deadlines to contribute to the Congress are:
Abstract submission:              10 January 2016
Full paper submission:            10 June 2016 

You can send your abstracts to .

We kindly request your attendance and your help to share this information among your colleagues.

23 rd International Conference on Subterranean Biology
Dear Colleagues,
What do Markus Friedrich, Meredith Protas, Helena Bilandžija, Bill Jeffery, Ruben Tovar, David Carline, Kelly O’Quin, Joshua Gross, and Masato Yoshizawa have in common? 
 They have already agreed to present papers at the  at the 23 rd International Conference on Subterranean Biology, to be held from June 13 to 17, 2016 in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on the campus of the University of Arkansas.  The website ( www.speleobiology.com/icsb2016/ )
 has information on the meeting, including the preliminary program, information on housing, a registration form, and information on submission of abstracts.  We hope you will visit the website soon in order to make your plans for the meeting.  Among the highlights
 are an opening reception at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, a day long excursion deep into the heart of the Ozarks karst, and four special symposia on:
·         Patterns of subterranean biogeography and biodiversity, organized by Louis Deharveng
·         Conservation of subterranean fauna and habitats, organized by Michael Slay
·         Cave animals at the frontiers of modern biology, organized by William Jeffery
·         Subterranean microbial system and geomicrobiology, organized by Annette Engel.
The organizing committee consists of myself, Daniel Fong (American University), Matthew Niemiller (Illinois Natural History Survey), Megan Porter (University of Hawaii),
 Michael Slay (The Nature Conservancy), and Steven Taylor (Illinois Natural History Survey).  If you have any questions, please contact us at

The William L. Wilson Scholarship in Karst Science
Administered by the Karst Waters Institute
The William L. Wilson Scholarship in Karst Science was established in 2002 to recognize the significant karst science contributions of the late William (Bill) L. Wilson.  Bill Wilson used a variety of techniques, and unusual creativity, to tackle some of
 the most difficult karst science questions in Florida and elsewhere.  He developed a leading karst consulting company in the United States, Subsurface Evaluations, Incorporated.  To stimulate the development of new, energetic, motivated, and creative karst
 scientists, and to remember Bill Wilson and his dedication to karst science, the scholarship has been established in his memory.  The value of the scholarship as a one-time award is $1,000.
To apply for the William L. Wilson Scholarship, the following conditions exist:
1)      The applicant must be currently enrolled in, or have been accepted into, a master’s degree program at an institution of higher education in the United States. 
 PhD students are not eligible.
2)      A written proposal of the planned karst study must be submitted.  It is limited to 1000 words or less for the narrative, not counting figure captions and references. 
 The research topic should be one concerning karst science, from the field of geochemistry, geology or hydrology.   A very simple budget indicating how the funds would be used should also be included (it does not count in the 1000 word limit).  Applicants are
 requested to not recycle master’s thesis proposals as applications.
3)      Academic transcripts of undergraduate, and any graduate work, should be submitted.  Copies issued to the student by their institution are preferred.
4)      Two letters of recommendation, with one of them from the student’s advisor or mentor, should be submitted.  It is requested that these letters be emailed directly
 to by the letter writers.
5)      Applications are due by February 1, 2016.  They should be submitted electronically as a single pdf file that includes the proposal, budget, and all transcripts
