Welcome, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, to members of the International Society for Subterranean Biology, all speleobiologists, and anyone interested in subterranean life. The 23rd International Conference on Subterranean Biology, jointly sponsored by the Department of Biology at the University of Arkansas, will be held in Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA, from June 13 to June 17, 2016. This will be the first ICSB held in the United States, and we are eager to showcase the many caves and karst features in the area and to bring together scientists and students with an interest in subterranean biology from the U.S. and from around the globe. These meetings often have participants from more than 20 countries, and we hope to break that record in 2016. In addition to contributed papers and poster sessions, several special symposia on topics such as evolution and development as well as conservation are being planned. The meeting itself will be hosted on the campus of the University of Arkansas. A number of special events are also being planned, including a day long excursion and several receptions. As more information becomes available, we will post it on this website. Please stay tuned.

David Culver, Chair of the Organizing Committee

Committee Members: Daniel Fong, Matthew L. Niemiller, Megan L. Porter, Michael E. Slay, and Steven J. Taylor
