Poster Sessions
Management of Subterranean Ecosystems in Extreme Environments

Posters may remain on display all week, but specific hosting times will be determined by the symposium program staff. Authors will be expected to be at their posters during those windows. Most likely, we will be organizing a poster Q&A session on Wednesday evening in conjunction with a social networking event at the convention center.

IKC Table Display

At present, we expect poster sessions will share room space with table displays like this one from the Indiana Karst Conservancy. Symposium sponsors and non-profit organizations are welcome to receive display space pending advance permission from the conference staff. Photo by Matt Selig, IKC.

Poster presenters are strongly encouraged to focus their material on topics directly related to the management of cave and karst systems. Pure research posters will not be rejected, but may not be given the same priority as those with a management subtext.

Poster sessions at the 2025 NCKMS conference are tailored to provide a dynamic platform for researchers and management professionals to share their scientific findings and engage in discussions with their peers. Unlike traditional oral presentations, poster sessions involve the display of research findings on large posters that participants can explore at their own pace. Attendees can move freely between posters, engage in one-on-one discussions with presenters, and gain a comprehensive understanding of a wide range of cave and karst management topics.

Poster presenters play a crucial role in facilitating discussions by standing near their displays, ready to explain their work, answer questions, and exchange ideas with symposium attendees. This format encourages a more intimate and direct interaction between researchers, fostering collaboration, networking, and the exchange of valuable insights within our professional community.

Moreover, poster sessions provide an opportunity for participants to discover emerging trends, novel approaches, and potential collaborations in the field of cave and karst management. Attendees can explore a wide range of topics within a relatively short time, gaining exposure to a breadth of research that may not be covered in traditional oral presentations.

The Most Mountainous State

Nevada Mountains

Nevada is the most mountainous state in the country, with over 300 individual mountain ranges and 42 named summits over 11,000 feet!


Advance registration for the 2025 symposium is expected to open in mid-2024. We will send an email to past attendees when that system comes online.
