2nd International Workshop on Ice Caves (IWIC-II)

Dates: From 08 May, 2006 till 12 May, 2006
Location: Demnovsk dolina, Slovak Republic
Dear Colleague,

we are pleased to send you the Second Circular of the 2nd International Workshop on Ice Caves (IWIC-II) in Slovakia. The first IWIC-I was organized in Romania two years ago. Participants from many countries were fascinated by admirable natural phenomena of Scarisoara Ice Cave. This series of international workshops is oriented to complex scientific research and protection of caves with permanent ice and snow deposits.
A lot of new studies from many countries on these caves with remarkable climatic, glaciological and other subterranean environmental features will be presented during IWIC-II. We are preparing also two round tables for more detailed discussions related to selected problems on ice cave climatology, glaciology and other topical issues.
The programme of IWIC-II contains also three full day field trips. You will visit the famous Dob?in Ice Cave (World Heritage) with the Duca ice-filled collapsed doline in the Slovak Paradise National Park, some well-known caves in the Demnov Valley including the spectacular Demnov Cave of Liberty and Demnov Ice Cave, and several important caves in the Slovak Karst National Park (Gombasek Cave with straw stalactites, Silicka ladnica Ice Cave located only 503 m a.s.l.). Also the visit of Ochtin Aragonite Cave (World Heritage) is included into the programme of post-workshop field trip.
We hope that IWIC-II will be a successful and important event for future activities of the scientific community interested in wide-ranging topics of ice caves.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Slovakia.
Sincerely yours,

RNDr. Pavel Bella
Prof. Alfredo Bini
