Karst sessions at the EGU General Assembly

Dates: From 19 Apr, 2009 till 24 Apr, 2009
Location: Vienna, Austria

This coming year there will be karst sessions at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly at Vienna from 19 to 24 April 2009. Abstract submission is open since a couple of weeks with a deadline of January 13th 2009.

This year you will be able to choose one of the three following Karst geomorphology sessions:

NH9.2/GM7.3 Natural and anthropogenic hazards in karst areas Convener: M.Parise. Co-Conveners: J.De Waele, F.Gutierrez

GM7.1/NH9.3 Surface and Subsurface Karst Geomorphology Convener: J.De Waele. Co-Conveners: M.Filipponi, L.Plan

GM7.2/NH9.4 Karst systems: dynamics, evolution and paleoenvironmental recordings
Convener: E.Gilli. Co-Convener: J.De Waele

HS3.2 Fissured and karstified aquifers
Conveners: F. Gabrovsek, S. Birk, T. Graf, P. Maloszewski

For abstract submission please go to

As always there is possibility to ask for financial support for young scientists and/or non-European scientists (especially from developing countries). Deadline for abstract submission with request of support is 7 December 2008!! As last year, we hope to be able to make these three karst sessions successful. A selection of presentations will be invited to submit a full paper for Geodinamica Acta and another ISI listed journal (to be decided once the abstract submission will be completed). Hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes Jo De Waele
