The 16th Sinkhole Conference: Call for Abstracts and Registration
 
The Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst, generally called “The Sinkhole Conference,” is the longest-running international conference of its type. Since 1984, engineers, geologists, hydrologists, land managers, biologists, and many others have gathered at these meetings to exchange cutting-edge information on karst and its many benefits and challenges.
 
The call for abstracts is now open for the 16th Sinkhole Conference. Abstracts may be submitted until 15 July 2019, after which will be the time to submit your papers to accompany your abstracts. The papers of past Sinkhole Conferences have made those proceedings highly sought and widely cited. We expect the proceedings of the upcoming meeting will be the best yet.
 
The 16th Sinkhole Conference will occur on 20-24 April 2020 in fabulous San Juan, Puerto Rico! Puerto Rico offers a tropical karst landscape and a vibrant historical and cultural venue unlike anything seen in rest of the United States. Many people are already talking about attending the conference as part of a vacation, and we are helping to make that possible.
 
The conference will be held in the lovely Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel, located in the historic heart of the city. Unlike previous conferences, your registration will include your breakfasts and lunches, in addition to the other usual amenities. Also, your discount conference room rates will extend to three days before and after the conference, in case you want to stay longer and enjoy a vacation.
 
For all of the details on the conference, including information on how to prepare and submit your abstracts, visit http://www.sinkholeconference.com/.  Remember, the deadline is 15 July 2019.
 
The Sinkhole Conference is managed by the National Cave and Karst Research Institute and with tremendous assistance from a diverse team of karst experts from around the country who join us to form the Organizing Committee. On behalf of the 16th Sinkhole Conference Organizing Committee, we look forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing you in San Juan next year!
 
-----------------------
 
The 16th Sinkhole Conference: Beck Student Scholarship Call for Applications
 
The Sinkhole Conference was created in 1984 and led for many years by Dr. Barry Beck. In his memory, the conference now offers the Beck Student Scholarship. Students awarded a Beck Scholarship will receive free registration to the conference and up to $1,000 reimbursement for travel expenses, as well as certain special recognitions and other benefits. Scholars from the previous Sinkhole Conference are recognized at http://www.sinkholeconference.com/Beck-scholarship. To apply for the scholarship, visit http://www.sinkholeconference.com/how-to-apply-for-the-beck-scholarship.
 
-----------------------
 
The 16th Sinkhole Conference: Beck Student Scholarship Call for Donors
 
The Sinkhole Conference funds one Beck Student Scholarship for each conference, but more than one scholarship can be offered with your support. Six were awarded last time! Attending The Sinkhole Conference can be a life-changing experience for students by opening their eyes to state-of-the-art knowledge, and important professional contacts and opportunities. To help change a student’s life for the better, we ask and encourage you to donate to the Beck Scholarship. All donations are tax deductible. For details on how to donate, visithttp://www.sinkholeconference.com/How-to-sponsor-the-scholarship.

Virginia Cave Week: USA
 
Virginia Cave Week runs from 2-9 June 2019 and promotes an understanding of Virginia's caves and the surrounding limestone habitats known as karst. Sponsored by the Virginia Cave Board, the week is used to highlight a specific theme related to karst and provide resources and educational opportunities to engage the community in conservation efforts. Educators are encouraged to involve their students using in-class activities and visitation to the state's numerous commercial caves
 
This website is a resource for material related to cave and karst education. Check out the different tabs for information and links having to do with caves, karst-related education, class-room activities, virtual caves, and more. Enjoy. https://vacaveweek.com/

13th Balkan Cavers Camp: Turkey
 
Dear Caver Friends,
 
Since September 2002, the Balkan Speleological Union (BSU) has united thousands of cavers from 12 different countries with the spirit of cooperation and friendship. Inspired by this environment, The Balkan Cavers Camp of BSU was first organized in 2007. Over the years, it has become one of the prominent events in the caving community, anticipated with excitement by cavers from many nations.
 
Now, on behalf of the BSU, the Turkish Federation of Speleology is pleased to invite you to take part in the 13th Balkan Cavers Camp, which will be held in Antalya, Turkey, from 2nd to 8th of September 2019.
 
Antalya is a town located on the Mediterranean coast of Southern Turkey. It is a popular holiday destination where the visitors will find many tourist attractions including the old town for shopping and nightlife, nearby beaches, museums, and ancient cities just a few hours away. The camp space of the event will be on Lara Beach, one of the famous beaches in Antalya where you can enjoy the sea.
 
In addition, the area is characterized by the most remarkable and important karstic topography in Turkey, the Taurus Mountains, with a long history of speleological exploration. The geographical location of the event will allow many spectacular excursions, which will be ongoing throughout the event.
 
We are looking forward to meeting with our caver friends in Turkey soon!
