This highly successful interdisciplinary biennial conference series is the most important international meeting that concentrates on the practical application of karst science. Geologists, engineers, and geographers, who study how and where karst develops and how sinkholes form, interact with engineers and planners, who apply this information to building and maintaining society’s infrastructure while protecting our environment.
The conference is managed by the National Cave and Karst Research Institute, which will partner with the Karst Waters Institute to offer this exceptional 2018 meeting. Given its location in the Great Valley of the Appalachians, one of the premier karst regions of the USA, the conference will include the 3rd Appalachian Karst Symposium.
Conference topics include: Karst Development & Mapping, Pro-Active and Remedial Engineering in Karst Terrain, Karst Water Resource Management. Optional Short Courses will be offered on April 2, 2018, and Field Trips on April 3 and 6, 2018.
