The event will highlight discoveries made over the past 4 years from all over the planet. Aside from the new discovery of caves and passages, the many archeological and biological discoveries that have transpired will also be featured.
During the event competitions will take place in painting, sculpture, photography and film categories, including a Speleo Olympics where cavers can compete in athletic ability.
