25th International Karstological School "Classical karst"

Milestones and Challenges in Karstology

Topic and Goals

Each year since 1993, International Karstological School (IKS) "Classical Karst" has been organised, covering many aspects of karst research. The basic idea of the School has been to present the state of the art in selected topics and promote discussion between participants via set of lectures, poster sessions and related field trips to the area of Slovene Classical karst.

Research in the last 25 years has contributed to new findings in many fields of research within karstology. Therefore, the 25th IKS is an opportunity to review major milestones in karstological research, stress the research advances in the last 25 years and define challenges and perspectives for the next generation.

The topics of the 25th IKS will include a wide range of karstological issues. The work will also include fieldwork. The sessions are briedly described below. Within each session, invited keynote lectures and selected lectures of other participants will be held. As a number of lectures per each session is limited, other contributions will be presented as posters.
