About S4

S4 is a student-led training school aimed at graduate students and those who are new to applying speleothem science (the science of secondary cave mineral deposits) to reconstruct past climate, environmental, and archaeological change. Following four successful summer schools in Heidelberg 2013, Oxford 2015, Burgos 2017, and Cluj-Napoca 2019, the current planning committee is busy working on the 5th installment of S4 which will take place in Sao Paulo, Brasil in August 2023. Please check this website or our social media accounts for news and updates.

S4 features lectures and workshops delivered by world-leading experts within the field. As well as brushing up on speleothem science knowledge, S4 provides an excellent venue for participants to meet other students and established researchers working with speleothems. Participants will also have the opportunity to present their work (even if only at the research proposal stage) during an informal poster session. 


For more information about the types of topics covered see the schedule from S4 2019 and our past events page.
