"The second of the HYPOGEA congresses that brought together experts of the world's leading underground structures was held in Ürgüp (Turkey) between 6-10 March. In the congress held in Rome in 2015, it was proposed and unanimously accepted by the OBRUK Cave Research Group that the second one should be in Cappadocia two years later. Several scientists from 9 different countries attended the HYPOGEA 2017 Congress, which was supported by dozens of foreign and domestic organizations from the International Caving Federation to the Paris University, Istanbul Technical University to ÇEKÜL. During the presentations, new researches and discoveries in various countries, from Israel to Georgia, Italy and Turkey, were introduced, research methods of the structures and preservation projects were discussed. In long dinners and cocktails, common projects were discussed. During the Congress were planned visits to many underground structures in the region. All participants, visiting the non-touristic structures such as Uçhisar Water Tunnel, Erdemli Valley, Filiktepe and Gökçetoprak underground cities, were fascinated."--https://artificialcavities.wordpress.com/meetings/hypogea2017/ (viewed October 24, 2018).

"The first International Congress of Speleology in Artificial Cavities; HYPOGEA2015 was successfully held in Rome / Italy during March 11-15, 2015."--http://hypogea-web.blogspot.com/2015/09/hypogea2017-second-international.html (viewed October 24, 2019)

"The main goal of HYPOGEA 2017 Congress is to continue the exchange of experiences acquired at the international level in the field of artificial cavities which had begun by HYPOGEA 2015. The sessions of HYPOGEA 2017 will have a strong emphasis on archaeology, archaeometry, promotion of the underground historical and cultural heritage, its safeguard and exploitation, with some plenary lectures and invited speeches on those subjects."--http://hypogea-web.blogspot.com/2015/09/hypogea2017-second-international.html (viewed October 24, 2019)
