The first Summer School on Speleothem Science (S4) took place in Heidelberg, Germany, organised by a group of PhD students.

Strong positive feedback from participants and experts led to a decision to organise a subsequent Summer School. A new Organising Committee was formed, comprising an international group of graduate students. Summer 2015 was targeted as the date for the next S4.


Among many competing sites Oxford has been chosen to host S4 2015. Oxford offers world class expertise, state of the art laboratories and cave systems in reach for field experience. The Organising Committee begin their work.
