International Conference Man and Karst
International Symposium ALCADI 2018 – History of Speleology and Karstology in the Alps, Carpathians and Dinarides.
Livno, Bosnia and Hercegovina, 2018.
A comprehensive understanding of karst International Conference “The man and karst” will be organized this year in Livno, on the edge of one of the most beautiful karst polje in the Dinarides. As before, the goal is to continue affirmation of karst potentials and protection of karst ecosystems and its karstic heritage. This is intended to be achieved through better connections and meeting people interested in karst issues and exchanging scientific news. We would also like to get the attention of attendees and report works dealing with changes in karst environments and landscapes, which may be the result of natural processes, and in particular the impact of man.
But, like every year, there is a wide range of topics from which you can report your work.
They include: general karstology, geomorphology, speleology, biospeleology, karst environment and nature conservation, tourism and economy, culture and the cultural landscape, karst in art and other interdisciplinary subjects.
We are starting from the broadest, holistic concept of karstology, and not just from its scientific activities, but also from practical engagement, so we invite people from the economy, those who work in the education or manage local communities. Karst can be adequately understood, used and protected only if we approach it from different areas and perspectives.
This gathering is a chance for young explorers to establish cooperation with others, not just peers from the region, but also karstologists of world reputation. As with similar past meetings, we want to provide the opportunity for a preliminary presentation of the activities of speleological clubs and companies.
This year we also hope to have a fruitful exchange of information, relaxation, and enjoyment of the ambience of the extraordinary karst of the Livanjsko polje, Livno and its heritage.
Within the conference “Man and Karst” The International Symposium ALCADI 2018 – History of Speleology and Karstology in the Alps, Carpathians and Dinarides will be organized.
