|50th Anniversary of the International Union of Speleology|
The International Union of Speleology celebrates 50 years in June 2014! The manifestations of this anniversary will be combined with the programme of the 23rd International Karstological School "Classical Karst" at the end of the week of June 15 to 20 to be held in Postojna - Slovenia.
The International Karstological School “Classical Karst” has been conducted in partnership with UIS annually since 1993. Different aspects of karst studies are presented each year. The basic objectives are to present the state-of-the-art in the selected topic, and encourage discussions related to the school’s topic through lectures, poster presentations and field trips in the Classical Karst of Slovenia.
Last day of the School (June 19th) will be dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of International Union of Speleology – UIS. UIS was established during the 4thInternational Congress of Speleology, which was held in Ljubljana and Postojna in 1965. The UIS was officially founded during the Closing Ceremony of the Congress on September 16th in Ljubljana.
