The British Cave Research Association, Yorkshire Geological Society, and Leeds Geological Association are pleased to announce details of the 28th Annual Cave Science Symposium and associated field trips. The Symposium will be hosted by Prof. Simon Bottrell and Dr. Phillip Murphy of the School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds, on Saturday 21st October, 2017. A programme of presentations is being assembled that will be of interest to anyone wishing to know more about the cave and karst environment.

Call for Abstracts

The response to the first call for abstracts has been very positive and it already looks like we will have a fascinating collection of talks on our special session, “Caves and Karst of the Yorkshire Dales”. Oral and poster presentations on this special theme are still invited, as well as all cave and karst topics from other regions.

Abstracts should be submitted by email no later than 31st August, 2017, to the lecture secretary, Gina Moseley gina.moseley[-at-]uibk.ac.at. Please include all authors with their affiliations, an email address for the primary author, and an abstract of up to 500 words (main text and references only). If you are intending to submit an abstract, Gina would appreciate you sending her an email with a preliminary title. Don’t worry, there is no commitment, but it helps her to compile a diverse and interesting programme.

Registration

Registration will take place on the day and a small admission charge will be requested to cover refreshments, though entry will be free to speakers, students, and members of the sponsoring organisations. Donations to help finance the meeting will gladly be accepted.

To register your interest in joining or presenting at the meeting, please visit the doodle poll (http://doodle.com/poll/r2s9cbfe8rzsye7a).
