This year the twentieth edition of the scientific speleological days will be organised. For this occasion exceptionally they do last for 3 days on 11th , 12th and 13th November 2016.
Friday afternoon you will be invited to an exclusive conference by Laurent Brussels, french geologist/speleologist, on Little Foot Australopithecus whose almost complete skeleton has been excavated in a cave in South Africa and on which he has made a recent study which allowed its exact dating.
The conference will be followed by a guided tour by Yves Quinif, on the Boine massive and the caves of Han-sur-Lesse. Finally a reception will be held in the cave, in the Salle des Armes, in the presence of local and regional authorities to celebrate this special moment.
Saturday is the classic day of presentations at Dry Hamptay with a confercence by Paolo Forti on hydrothermal Karst and particularly on the Naica cave in Mexico with its fabulous giant crystals.
And, finally, the Sunday excursion will take us to Dinant to discover its urban karst.
Please hold these dates and practical information will follow later this year on: https://sites.google.com/site/speleoscient/
