The 15th International Congress of Speleology will be held in Kerrville, Texas, USA on 19-26 July 2009. Since it is never too early to begin preparing for a great event, the website for the Congress is now available with all of the latest information so you can start planning to attend. The goal of the website is to stay so up to date that if you don't find the information you need there, then it is likely that the information is not yet available (although you're always welcome to contact us and check).
The website is in English. Our summary leaflet is available as PDFs in French, German, and Spanish. The leaflet is currently being translated into Italian and will be posted as soon as it is ready. Later this summer, print-quality versions of the leaflets will be available on the web too. By the end of September, the entire website will be available in French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
We encourage you to visit the website and bookmark it for future reference: www.ics2009.us
If you want to be certain you receive all updates on the Congress or are interested in helping, contact us at email@example.com
We look forward to seeing you in Kerrville in 2009!
George Veni Chairman, 15th International Congress of Speleology Adjunct Secretary, International Union of Speleology
