2nd International Workshop on Ice Caves, Demänovská dolina, Slovak Republic, May 8-12, 2006 Aims of the workshop: IWIC are workshops entirely devoted to ice caves research. We wish to offer a place to point out the state of art, to discuss ongoing research efforts, to boost international cooperation. We would like to explore the interest for future research projects. Furthermore, IWIC are an ideal opportunity to widen the availability among the interested audience of important research results formerly published only in non-English papers. We welcome contributions related to any aspect of ice cave research, and particularly: Ice caves climatology and the relations between hypogean and epigean environments Morphology and mass balances of cave ice deposits Stratigraphy and internal structure of hypogean ice deposits Ice sampling methods Cave ice crystal fabric Chemical and isotopical studies on cave ice and its fluid inclusions Applications of radiometric methods Palynology, dendrochronology and other biology-related studies applied to ice caves research. IWIC-II is organized under the auspices of UIS-GLACKIPR - the Glacial Caves and Karst in Polar and High Mountain Regions of the International Union of Speleology.
