17th International Congress of Speleology

The 17th ICS will showcase speleology in Australasia. Our caves range from the ancient to the modern with caves in rocks from the Precambrian to the Quaternary. There are caves in limestone, dolostone, basalt, granite and sandstone; many are beautifully decorated with calcite, gypsum and halite. They span a spectrum of climates from ‘desert’ caves to wet ‘alpine’ caves. Our caves contain a wealth of paleontological and archaeological material such as the bones of extinct megafauna and evidence of human habitation. Thanks to this diversity, numerous caves have been protected for their intrinsic value in reserves and parks and World Heritage Areas. Many of our caves are accessible to the general public as tourist caves.
Chosen theme is Caves in an Ancient Land

The deadline for abstracts for the 17th International Congress of Speleology is 20 November 2016.
The deadline for low price early registration fees ends on 31 January 2017
