Study Abroad: Opportunity for Students to Study Karst in Bosnia


Students!!!! Northern Arizona University is offering a study-abroad opportunity in Bosnia & Herzegovina: Characterization and Engineering of Karst Aquifers. It will be offered May 27 - June 14, 2017 but the registration deadline is 1 February 2017. For more information visit http://edabroad.nau.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgram&Program_ID=10627.




Biospeleology Congress in Italy


The ONG Natural Oasis, Sardinian Speleological Federation, University of Cagliari and University of Sassari are organizing a Biospeleology Congress in Cagliari, Italy, on 7-9 April 2017. More information is available at http://congressobiospeleo.wixsite.com/biospeleo2017




Geological Society of America: call for karst papers


It's time to submit proposals for Karst sessions for the 2017 GSA Meeting! The meeting will be held in Seattle, Washington on 22-25 October, and session proposals can submitted here. General information on the conference is at http://www.geosociety.org/GSA/Events/Annual_Meeting/GSA/Events/gsa2017.aspx.


The deadline for submitting topical sessions is February 1st, 2017 and the abstract submission window will open on April 1st, 2017.


It is important to know that the Karst Division Management Board has adjusted the way that abstracts and sessions will be managed at future meetings. Topical Sessions can still be proposed as before, but moving forward, researchers will also have the option of submitting their abstracts to one of five categories:

  1. Karst Hydrology and Geology
  2. Karst Processes and Speleology
  3. Karst Hazards and Monitoring
  4. Karst Sedimentary and Paleoclimate Records
  5. Karst Ecosystems and Biogeochemistry


This arrangement will ensure that there is always a welcome home at GSA Meetings for almost all forms of karst research, and it will help streamline the abstract submission and oral/poster scheduling process for karst sessions at future meetings. Please see the attached file for additional details.


This change was made in response to the growing number of abstracts being submitted for the GSA Annual Meeting, as well as the increasing number of attendees and scheduling complexities for the program. The Karst Division Management Board has worked with GSA and the Joint Technical Program Committee representatives to develop this new protocol in line with many of the other Divisions within GSA and we are hopeful that it will better serve our growing karst community.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to serving you and the Division in the coming year!


Thank you and best wishes,


GSA Karst Division Management Board
