13th Sinkholes Conference, now in Carlsbad, New Mexico

Dates: From 06 May, 2013 till 10 May, 2013
Location: Carlsbad, New Mexico

Dear Friends,

We are excited and happy to announce that the website is up and the call for abstracts has begun for the 13th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst! More commonly called “The Sinkhole Conference,”

Since 1984 this excellent series of meetings has been pivotal in bringing together engineers, geologists, geophysicists, and regulators to exchange ideas and enhance everyone’s understanding of the challenges of living in karst areas.

The National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCKRI) is honored to have been given management of this conference series, and it still operated by the Organizing Committee made up of people who have hosted this conference for years, including representatives of sponsoring organizations like P.E. LaMoreaux and Associates, U.S. Geological Survey, Illinois State Geological Survey, Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District, and many others. If your organization is interested in being a sponsor or exhibitor, please contact us.

The conference will be held in Carlsbad, New Mexico, at NCKRI Headquarters, on 6-10 May 2013. This is the most westerly venue for the conference to date, and an excellent opportunity for the field trip and sessions to focus on evaporite karst and karst management in arid environments, as well as the wide range of other topics.

You can access the website through the NCKRI website’s“Events” tab or directly at the conference website. To submit an abstract, click on “Call for Abstracts” in the upper right side of the home page. The abstract deadline is August 15th!

Over the next month or so we’ll add much more information to the website and begin registration. We’ll send another message at that time. Please share these messages with any you think may be interested.

If you have any questions or suggestions, let us know.

See you in Carlsbad in one year!

George Veni and Jim LaMoreaux
Co-chairman, 13th Sinkhole Conference
