The Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst, generally called “The Sinkhole Conference,” is the longest-running international conference of its type. Since 1984, engineers, geologists, hydrologists, land managers, biologists, and many others have gathered at these meetings to exchange cutting-edge information on karst and its many benefits and challenges. Abstracts may be submitted until 15 August 2017, after which will be the time to submit your papers to accompany your abstracts. The papers of past Sinkhole Conferences have made those proceedings highly sought and widely cited. We expect the proceedings of the upcoming meeting will be the best yet.

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) announced the registration and abstract submission period is open for the Fall 2017 Virtual Poster Showcase (VPS). Traditionally, some students are unable to participation in traditional conferences due to timing or financial constraints and missing out on valuable resume building experience. VPS was launched as a way to give all students the opportunity to present their research to the broader scientific community via a virtual platform. AGU is also seeking volunteers to help judge the competition. The deadline to participate is September 30, 2017. Read past Geotimes Posts on the Virtual Poster Showcase here
