  • Methods to study karst aquifers: based on hydrodynamic, hydrochemistry, isotopes, dye tracing, geophysical surveys and modelling techniques.
  • Karst Geomorphology and Landscape.
  • Mining and Engineering in karst media: mining and large structures (tunnels, dams, etc.).
  • Karst cavities: touristic caves, natural heritage.


Subjects of interest will be experiences and case studies, techniques used and results obtained in recent scientific research on karst. Free papers may be submitted. Initially, an abstract of 300 to 500 words should be provided. The papers accepted by the Scientific Committee will be included in a proceedings sitck memory. Papers that meet the requirements will be selected for publication in a Springer book-series.
