We need to inform you that ISO voted in favor of creating the commission on karst. There is 1 more vote coming up on 23 June where ISO will decide if they want to change the proposal as they create a karst standardization committee. This is likely the last chance to deal with the matter. See the attached document on voting.

The international show cave community organizes special events and offers during the International Day of Caves and Subterranean World, which is scheduled to the 6th of June. This idea and the date is gradually being accepted by increasing number of show caves around the world, many of them also being ISCA members. All those who haven't yet done so are welcome to join. The plan is to make this day also officially supported by UNESCO and first steps have already been done in this respect. (Press release linked to the headline)

We would like to inform you that the 26th International Karstological School "Classical Karst": Show Caves and Science will be held from 18th June, 2018 - 22nd June, 2018, in Postojna, Slovenia. Since 1993, the International Karstological School "Classical Karst" has been organised annually, covering many aspects of karst research. This year we will focus on research related to caves dedicated to tourism (show caves). The main aim is to present and discuss a wide range of speleological issues addressed by different scientific and technical disciplines that are deeply involved in sustainable show cave management (morphology, biology, meteorology, nature conservation...), the monitoring of natural conditions and tourist-related activities in show caves. We believe that there are many good and bad practices of adapting caves for tourism worldwide to discuss and to evaluate the role of science - at least at Classical Karst we have opportunity to share knowledge accumulated in nearly 200 years of using the Postojna Cave System for tourism.
