14th International Symposium on Pseudokarst

We announce that in spite of our expectation, the pandemic conditions have not changed significantly, and probably will not change soon. Consequently, the restrictions related to this situation likely will not allow us to gather and meet for the 14th International Symposium on Pseudokarst as originally planned at Świętokrzyskie Mountains (Chęciny) in Poland. So, the Symposium will be held online, via internet.

This creates at least one important disadvantage: the Symposium participants will not visit picturesque region with its crags and caves. But it bears also great benefits: Symposium participants will be able to have presentations and to watch these presentations sitting in their rooms, without wastage of their time for a travel and money (since the participation will be free). This changes the organisation/schedule of scientific sessions, which will be held on 23rd April 2021, and new active participants having presentations are invited.

So, the new registration form for potential participants will be posted soon to the Symposium website, along with other updates: 14pseudokarst.wonders4you.com. Please register by 15 March 2021.

Sincerely yours

Jan Urban

President of the UIs Pseudokarst Commission    

Pseudokarst caves in present-day exploration and scientific research

Pseudokarst (non-karst) caves represent great number of caves discovered, explored and studied currently and in the past. However, they are still underestimated in publications, presentations and media reports dedicated to cave exploration and research. Just now the International Union of Speleology is preparing its activities for the International Year of Caves and Karst. “Karst” is clearly called in this Year name, but we know that many caves are not related to karst. Which will be our contribution to the organisation of this year? How will non-karst caves be “visible” during this Year and discerned after its completion? This problem and other similar topics will be subjects of discussion during the 14. International Symposium of Pseudokarst in the Świętokrzyskie (Holy Cross) Mountains, Central Poland.
