Тема: News from NCKRI: karst sessions and scholarship

Dear Friends,
Below are announcements of karst sessions and a travel scholarship that you may find of interest. Please feel free to share this message and contact the
 people listed below for more information.
European Geophysical Union Karst Sessions
Dear karst lovers,
This year we are organizing two sessions related with karst during the EGU 2016, to be held as usual in Vienna, 17-22 April 2016.
We therefore invite you to participate in this event presenting one or more papers on karst from your research areas. These can include topics ranging
 from speleogenesis to natural hazards, from paleoclimate reconstructions to hydrogeology, from pure geomorphology to speleothems and cave minerals, as long as it has to do with caves and karst.
Note that the deadline for presentation of abstracts is set at January 13th 2016!
The karst sessions are:
“Evaporite karst"
convener: Jo De Waele, co-conveners: Mario Parise and Jiri Bruthans
“Karst geomorphology and hazards in carbonate terrain”
convener: Mario Parise, co-convener: Natasa Ravbar and Jo De Waele
Authors of promising papers in the evaporite karst session will be asked to contribute to a special issue on "Evaporite Karst” to be published in
 the International Journal of Speleology. In fact, 20 years have passed since the last special issue on gypsum karst of the world, edited by Klimchouk, Lowe, Cooper and Sauro in 1996, a benchmark in karst sciences.
It is time to make an update on this topic, and the best place to do so is the International Journal of Speleology.
Also prominent presentations of the Geomorphology session will be asked to contribute to a relevant international journal.
Info on the EGU General Assembly 2016 can be found at:  http://egu2016.eu/
And on how to submit an abstract:  http://egu2016.eu//abstract_management/how_to_submit_an_abstract.html
See you in Vienna
Jo De Waele, Mario Parise, Jiri Bruthans and Natasa Ravbar

 from outside the U.S. in order to attend and present their research results at the 2016 International Conference on Subterranean Biology (ICSB) in Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA. Conference details are available at the conference website: http://www.speleobiology.com/icsb2016/ .
Eligibility : Graduate and undergraduate students and young scientists who earned their Ph.D.
 degrees in 2012 or later, and are working at an institution outside the United States.
Application : The application deadline is midnight, GMT, 29 February 2016. Submit via email
 to , with “Travel Fellowship Application” on the subject line, the following material:
·        A letter of application, addressed to the “Scientific Committee, ICSB 2016”, including an explanation of the significance of the presentation to the field of subterranean biology.
·        An updated CV.
·        Title and abstract of the presentation (follow instructions on abstract preparation on the conference website).
Application Review : All applications will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee of the
 2016 ICSB. Selection criteria will include scientific quality, funding situation at home institution and balanced geographic representation. Successful applicants will be notified individually and announced on the 2016 ICSB website by 15 March 2016.
