UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

The 14th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst, which is generally known as "The Sinkhole Conference", will be held in Rochester, Minnesota, on 5-9 October 2015. Mark your calendars!

For 30 years this conference series has been the premier conference for all aspects of karst geoscience and related engineering and environmental issues—and not just sinkholes. This next Sinkhole Conference is being jointly organized with the Minnesota Groundwater Association and should be an exceptional meeting

The conference also now has a permanent website site, at the easy-to-remember address: http://www.sinkholeconference.com/. Bookmark and visit it for more information. The new "Past Conferences" tab includes the proceedings of the 13th Sinkhole Conference for free download. Information on conference hotels, the call for papers, and more will be posted later this year.
