Eurokarst is the European bi-annual conference on the Hydrogeology of Karst and Carbonate Reservoirs.

More than 150 abstracts have been received at the submission deadline. Final acceptance will be communicated in late January 2024.

What is Eurokarst?

Eurokarst offers a platform for professional exchange between field practitioners and academic researchers. Eurokarst is organized usually every two  years by the Universities of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), Besançon (France), and Málaga (Spain).


Eurokarst is intended to be an international forum for scientific debate on the progress made in research into karst environments. At this fourth event, the main objective of the 4th Eurokarst is to discuss and disseminate the latest trends in research into karst aquifers and water resources based on the results obtained with different methodologies in karst terrains worldwide.

Official Learning Acknowledgement
The Eurokarst conference has been recognized as an official learning/educational activity by the Italian National Council of Geologists (CNG). Professional Geologists participants to Eurokarst will obtain credits for their APC (Continuous Professional Update).
