Тема: Major DeepKarst Conference publication announcement

Dear Friends,
NCKRI is partnering with the Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis (KHS) Commission of the International Union of Speleology (UIS) to host next year’s DeepKarst
 2016 Conference on hypogenic karst. Now we have added a new partnership to create an important publication from the conference. Please read the message below by Commission President Alexander Klimchouk for the details, and don’t forget to register for the
 conference and to submit your paper by 15 September 2015 at the latest.
I am writing to you with regard to the ongoing preparation of two endeavors of the UIS KHS Commission related to the HypoKarst Project:  the DeepKarst 2016 Conference
 and the planned book “Selected Hypogene Karst Regions and Caves of the World.”
1. DeepKarst-2016 Conference: Origins, Resources, and Management of Hypogene Karst . As you might know from the earlier announcements (e.g. http://speleogenesis.info/news/?id=336 ), this conference, which is being organized by National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCKRI) in cooperation with our Commission, will be held at NCKRI Headquarters
 in Carlsbad, New Mexico, USA on 11-14 April 2016. The focus of the conference will be on hypogenic karst, its theory, management, economic reservoirs, and more. It will be one of the major karst-related events in 2016 and the major meeting of the UIS KHS Commission,
 the last one before the UIS Congress in Australia in 2017. I therefore encourage you to consider submitting a paper to this important conference and attend it.
Not much time remains before the papers for this conference are due (on 15 September 2015). For registration, submission and further details please go to the conference
 website at http://deepkarst.org/ . Please, support the conference by your contribution and encourage your colleagues to attend!
2. The book “Selected Hypogene Karst Regions and Caves of the Word” .  During the recent karst conference at Birmingham, UK (June 2015), preliminary arrangements were made with representatives of the Springer publishing company to prepare a book titled “Selected
 Hypogene Karst Regions and Caves of the Word” for Springer’s “Cave and Karst Systems of the World” Book Series. This book will be edited by Philippe Audra, Arthur Palmer, Jo De Waele, Augusto Auler and myself, and will contain regional and cave-specific case
 studies, selected to represent diversity of speleogenetic processes and void-conduit patterns in different geological (hydrogeologic, geodynamic, etc.) environments. Detailed studies of typologically representative hypogene karst regions and cave systems are
 indispensable for improving our understanding of complex and still insufficiently understood relationships between cave-forming processes and geological environments. Publication of such book will enhance our ability to categorize hypogene karst, develop adequate
 conceptual and numerical models of hypogene karstification, and eventually predict hypogene karst porosity and permeability.
The preparation of this book is connected to the NCKRI’s DeepKarst 2016 conference. Selected contributions submitted to the conference as short papers will be invited
 to be presented in an extended format as chapters in this book. So, once again I encourage colleagues to submit papers to the DeepKarst 2016 conference. We’ll also additionally invite papers to achieve desired typological and geographic representation of hypogene
 karst of the world, based on your suggestions and the editor’s awareness of past and ongoing hypogene karst researches.  For this book, we solicit case-studies on both, well-known and newly recognized hypogene karst regions and caves of the world and ask authors
 to focus on geological, hydrogeological, geodynamic and evolutionary contexts of hypogene speleogenesis.
Both geographic distribution of hypogene karst and our knowledge of its regularities and peculiar features are still highly irregular. 
Whenever possible, we encourage potential authors working in regions that share a common geologic and hydrogeologic settings and/or history to consider suggesting joint
 contributions covering hypogene karst of their regions. Alternatively, we’ll also welcome contributions that provide overviews of hypogenic karst over large diverse regions and show regularities of its distribution and diversity of its patterns depending on
 variations of geologic/hydrogeologic settings and tectonic/geomorphological evolution. Case studies on outstanding and typologically representative individual caves or groups of caves are also appropriate for this book.
Here we announce the call for your suggestions for chapter titles for the book. Please, send them to me ( )
 before October 30, 2015, along with abstracts or explanations of your vision of the scope of your contribution(s). Indicate whether you are submitting this contribution to DeepKarst-2016 conference (the latter is recommended but not required). We’ll notify
 you about the editors’ decision on inclusion of your suggested contributions to the book before November 30, and we anticipate the deadline for submission of manuscripts at March 30, 2016. Publication of the book is tentatively planned for the fall of 2016.
I hope very much for your collaboration on these projects.
Best regards,
