MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE ORGANISING COMMITTEE

Anyone working in the area of karst water resources and karst geomorphology recognizes the name of Jovan Cvijic. His book Das Karstphanmen (Wien, 1893) was a milestone in karstology. This book, titled "Karst", was published in Belgrade in 1895. At that time, end of the nineteenth century, karstology was a young science and the best-substantiated theories were established by the studies undertaken at the area of Dinaric karst.

Survival in karst, due to lack of drinking water, was a greater challenge than in any other non-karstic areas. The complexities of the challenges, as shortage of water and natural hazards, are particularly present in the area with the highest precipitation in Europe, in Montenegro Dinaric karst area, around the Boka Kotorska Bay.

In the city of Belgrade we will do our best to provide for you a framework of Cvijic's scientific karstologist's spirit and good science in wonderful locations through the city. In the Boka Kotorska area we will show you a large concentrated amount of spectacular karst features and phenomenon.

I look forward and will be honored to meeting all of you at International Conference and Field Seminar: Water Resources & Environmental Problems in Karst in September 2005.
