Venue

Lectures and the starting point for fieldwork, as well as excursions, will be at Park Škocjanske jame. Detailed information about the meeting and accommodations will be provided in the second circular.

 

Topics and goals

The Congress will focus on scientific research in show caves. Show caves are a special underground environment with the natural processes characteristic of caves, but with additional human impacts that provide significant common problems and research opportunities. Usually, their infrastructure offers scientists better conditions for research because the many pathways as well as electrical and optical illumination enable easier access and charging of scientific instruments.

Show caves are convenient for studying both natural processes and the human impact. The direct human impact is considerably higher in show caves with several hundred thousand visitors per year or in small passages open to the public. What is the human impact, how is it measured, what approaches are available to minimise it – these are just a few questions to be considered. Human impact on cave biodiversity and its consequences for the cave environment, including lampenflora, will also be discussed. The goals of the meeting are to present and share different research approaches in show caves and to discuss the results and measures needed to improve the management of show caves.

We invite show cave managers, scientists who are involved in research in show caves and other interested experts to participate.
