Тема: Call for proposals: 2025 International Congress of Speleology

Dear Delegates of the UIS,


I hope you are well and safe during this COVID-19 crisis.


In November I wrote asking if you were interested in organizing the 2025 International Congress of Speleology. I’m writing again as a final reminder that the deadline for proposals is 1 July 2020.


Why would you want to organize a Congress? Teach the world what you are doing. Learn from the rest of the world, especially for your cavers who can’t easily travel internationally. Influence politicians, lawmakers, and land managers in your country with the Congress and show them you live in a major, important, speleological country. Develop friendships and partnerships to grow your speleological activities for many years to come.


The proposal should include discussion of the following:

  • Location
  • Facilities large enough for the Congress
  • Hotels and camping
  • Transportation to reach the Congress location
  • Available excursion locations for caving and technical trips
  • Which organization will organize the Congress
  • How many cavers and other groups are available to help
  • Costs
  • Any special events (such as national conventions) that might be part of the Congress
  • Anything else you think is important


We do not need great detail on these topics. We are looking for enough information to see that you understand the needs of the Congress and to help you with your proposal if you are missing important information. Our goal is to make sure that by the time you make your bid in 2021 in France to the UIS General Assembly, that each proposal is as good and complete as possible. This will help make your Congress as successful as possible.


As you prepare your proposals, please study the guidelines on organizing a Congress at https://www.uis-speleo.org/documents/administrative_documents/Guidelines%20for%20the%20organization%20of%20the%20UIS%20Congresses.pdf. They will help you understand what is expected of each Congress, and how to prepare for it.


We look forward to seeing your proposals no later than 1 July 2020. Please send them to UIS Secretary General Fadi Nader at and let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you,
