Scientists and cavers from the region and beyond are invited to meet, discuss, and prepare for future ventures. Abstracts are due on 1 July 2018. For more information visit: http://mess4.com/.




British Cave Research Association 29th Cave Science Symposium: Call for Abstracts


The British Cave Research Association is pleased to announce details of the 29th Annual Cave Science Symposium. The Symposium will be hosted by Dr. David Richards of the School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol, on Saturday 13th October, 2018. A programme of presentations is being assembled that will be of interest to anyone wishing to know more about the underground environment. Further details will follow in later circulars, as well as via other BCRA news outlets.



This year’s symposium will feature a special session on Cave Archaeology and a keynote lecture by Prof. Alistair Pike (University of Southampton) dedicated to Neanderthal Cave Paintings.  In addition, the symposium will include oral and poster presentations covering BCRA’s principal areas of interest. Following the symposium, an informal evening meal will be arranged for those who are interested. Details are to be announced.

Balkan Cavers Camp: Registration is Open!


The Romanian Speleological Federation will organize the 12th edition of BALKAN CAVER'S CAMP on 2-8 July 2018. The international meeting this year will include both the Romanian Speleological Congress and the "Speoarta" International Media Contest. The event will take place in Baru Mare, in the Haţeg County, with the support of the three famous parks: Retezat National Park, Geopark of Dinosaurs Haţeg Country - UNESCO international Geopark and Grădiştea Muncelului-Cioclovina Natural Park. Because this year we also celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Emil Racovita, the founding father of international biospeleology and Romanian speleology, we plan this event to be a special one, bringing together personalities from around the world of caving.
