and
Department of Geography, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana

are kindly inviting you to the international conference of the Carpatho-Balkan-Dinaric Geomorphological Commission (CBDGC) which will be held in Postojna, Slovenia, from September, 13 to 17, 2016. The main objective of the conference is to continue the activities of the CBDGC in promoting geomorphological research and exchange of knowledge in the area of Carpatho-Balcan-Dinaric mountain systems and adjacent basins. We are inviting all geomorphologists, geologists, geographers and other scientists who are dealing with the geomorphology of these areas to present their latest results at the conference in Postojna next year. The presentations will be oral and as posters. The organizing committee will try to publish the selection of papers in Slovene and other scientific magazines.

This will be the first meeting in the long history of CBDGC to be held in the karst areas of the Dinaric mountain system. Postojna is very well situated in the heart of the Slovene classical karst where the study of karst features began centuries ago. It is easily accessible by all means of transportation and is known internationally for its Karst Research Institute. The participants will also be invited to participate in the excursions to the most outstanding karst areas in the neighborhood of Postojna.

The first announcement will be published online at the end of November, 2015, with the conference preliminary programme and information for registration and preparing the abstracts.

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the conference of Carpatho-Balkan-Dinaric Geomorphological Commission (CBDGC) which will be held from 13-17 September 2016 in Postojna, Slovenia.

The conference is organized under the auspices of the CBDGC by Geomorphological Association of Slovenia in association with Karst Research Institute of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Postojna), Department of Geography, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana (Ljubljana) and Anton Melik Geographical Institute of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Ljubljana). It is the continuation of more than 50 years of CBDGC’s efforts for enhancing scientific cooperation and exchange of research results across the whole spectrum of geomorphological fields. As this will be the first conference of CBDGC in the Classical Karst area, we would like to add some karstic flavour to the conference, so the presentations of this subject are especially welcome.
