HYPOGEA2015 - International Congress of Speleology in Artificial Cavities

Dates: From 11 Mar, 2015 till 17 Mar, 2015
Location: Rome, Italy
Organisation: UIS - Societa Speleologica Italiana
Homepage: hypogea2015.hypogea.it
Registration URL: Click to open
Registration deadline: 01 Mar, 2015

New: the complete program is released: http://hypogea2015.hypogea.it/program

The main object of the congress is to exchange the experience acquired at the international and national level in the field of speleological and speleo-underwater research in artificial hypogea (works of anthropogenic origin and of archaeological-historical interest), the promotion of the underground historical and cultural heritage, its safeguard and exploitation.

The INTERNATIONAL THEMATIC SESSIONS, which are the main topic of the congress, will deal with the speleological studies undertaken in the international field during the course of shared archaeological missions (Archaeology), the definition of  international standards thanks to the adoption of cartographic symbols (Cartography), the adoption of a sharable world web site (UIS) connected to the “Register of Artificial Cavities” and the comparison between typologies of artificial cavities which have been extensively studied (Typology). 

The sessions will also provide the possibility of an initial analysis of the legislation presently active in different countries (Legislation) and of enlarging at an international level important Italian projects on artificial cavities, such as the Map of Ancient Aqueducts (Documentation).

During the Congress, GUIDED TOURS to hypogea and archaeological sites of special interest in Rome will be organised and three EXCURSIONS of great interest: Alban Hills, Sabina Underground and Narni Underground.
