The 20th international event on the similar theme under the patronage of the UIS Commission on Volcanic Caves (CVC). But this time the event is also under the auspices of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network (GGN) and the Asia-Pacific Geoparks Network (APGN). The event consists of two-days presentations and two-days field excursions to several volcanic caves within the Daknong Unesco Global Geopark, where more than 50 volcanic caves have been identified and explored, totalling more than 10,000m in length i.e. the largest and most rigorous volcanic cave system in Southeast Asia. More interestingly there is plenty of evidence of prehistoric human settlement inside several caves – a globally exceptionally rare phenomenon.
The symposium will be organized jointly by Dak Nong Provincial People’s Committee (Dak Nong PPC), Vietnam Institute of Geoscience and Mineral resources (VIGMR) and Vietnam National Museum of Nature.
