PRESS RELEASE OF 22/03/2020

Warning, variations dues to the COVID-19 emergency, the congress will be postponed to a date to be assigned.

More than 150 abstracts have been delivered for the XXIII National Speleology Congress “The melody of the caves” that should have been held in Ormea (CN) from the 30th of May until the 2nd of June.

Sadly, the emergency situation in which Italy, Europe, and the whole world finds itself force us to other priorities and our music will play again, but further on…

So the rendez-vous is postponed to a date to be assigned, it is still too soon to make any prevision. Probably it will take place in 2021.

As soon as it will be possible we will find a date that will allow us to bring together speleology and science, exploration and research.

We would like to give visibility to the received abstract anyway, keep an eye on the website because we will update the sessions, giving space to curiosity. The deadline to submit the papers will of course be properly rescheduled, there will be the chance to update those who have already been submitted and to present some new ones.

Everything is in the making, everything evolves.
