The conference covers all topics related to Karst Hydrogeology and Carbonate Reservoirs. We welcome submissions related but not limited to:

  • Flow and solute transport in karst (observations and models, karst interactions with stream, epikarst, unsaturated and saturated zone)
  • Innovative metrology (karst geometry, flow rate, temperature, chemistry, tracers, geophysics)
  • Modelling (from simple to complex approaches, and from theory to applications)
  • Speleogenesis and its physico-chemistry (experimental as well as modeling studies)
  • Geology and petrophysics of carbonate reservoirs (geological heterogeneity, fracturation)
  • Deep reservoir exploration and production (geothermics, CO2 storage, oil)
  • Water management and protection in karst environments (both case studies and new methodologies)
  • Mines, tunnels and engineering infrastructure (technical, environmental aspects and risk)
  • Disaster risk reduction mitigation and management related to karst (floods, collapse/subsidence)
  • Contaminant migration and chemical behavior, polluted sites management on karst
  • Carbonates, CO2 cycle and climate change
  • Agriculture and Tourism Applications (Case studies and best practices)

Paper Submission

Transkarst 2019 Call for Papers

Abstract should include a title, the authors and their affiliations. The nature and aspect of the work should be highlighted with three keywords. Please also select at least one topic from the list on the Topics page.

Two types of submission are considered and accepted for presentation

Option 1 – Only Abstract for presentation

Abstracts (around 300 words) only without full papers are considered and accepted at Transkarst 2019 for presentation and inclusion in conference manual.


Option 2 – Full Paper

Full papers should be within six (6) pages.

Full papers will be thoroughly reviewed and included in conference proceedings. Papers of high quality will be invited to be revised and extended for special issues in reputable international journals e.g. Caves and Science Journal
