The KROnline seminar series will take place from December 2020 to March 2021, as lead-up events for the in-person Climate Change, The Karst Record (KR9 Conference, dates TBC).

This is the fourth and final session (see "Program" below for all details).

Description

KROnline is an online seminar series, which aims to bridge the gap in sharing research within the karst community whilst waiting for an opportunity to host KR9 in Innsbruck, Austria, in a physical format.

Please note, KROnline is not intended as a replacement for the physical conference and as such organizers cannot accommodate all the normal activities one would find at a conference (e.g. workshops, coffee breaks etc).

Following the KR9 community survey, for which results are available here, organizers have developed the following concept for December 2020 to March 2021. Organizers may choose to continue the seminar series.

Submissions

Organizers invite submissions for oral and poster presentations. In order to get this initiative moving, the submission deadline is rather soon (23 November 2020). This will be a community effort and relies on your participation to be successful, so please join in this endeavour.

If you would like to present, please complete the form available from by 23 November 2020, 12:00 UTC: https://forms.gle/us4s3fwb1c9gs7VZ7

Organizers appreciate that this is short notice, but it is to enable December presenters enough time for preparation. If you have difficulties to submit by 23 November, then please write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and it will be taken into consideration with the planning.

For submission, please only include a title for now. A short abstract (max. 200 words) will be requested one week before your presentation.

Presentations cans be either oral or poster, however, there are only four oral slots per session so your requested presentation type may change.

Please indicate all the sessions that you are available for, in order of preference. This allows organizers flexibility with planning the program and makes it more likely that you will get an oral slot if desired.

Posters should be made available one week before the session so that people have time to view them in advance. During the session, poster presenters will enter their own breakout rooms in which people can visit to ask questions.

Recording of presentations will be at the discretion of the presenter.
