In 2019 we are celebrating IAVCEI's centennial. We have decided to mark the occasion of our 100th birthday by introducing a new, fresh IAVCEI logo!
Earlier this year we put out a call for you to come up with your best designs, and we thank everyone who submitted a logo design.
There were some great entries! We have now selected a short-list, which we are putting to the vote.
Please have your say on our new-look IAVCEI logo by clicking here to vote before June 30 2019!!
we are glad to publish the first circular of the Cities on Volcanoes 11 Conference, which will be held at Keraklion (Creete) from 23 to 27 of May 2020.

Fostering developed-developing country partnerships for the advancement of global volcano science
Co-convened by The University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre and the IAVCEI – Developing Nations Network*
4 - 7 June 2019 at the University of the West Indies, Saint Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago
Senior volcano scientists representing 22 countries from around the world will come together at The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus (Trinidad) on 4-7 June 2019 to discuss the challenges and opportunities for undertaking volcanology research, monitoring and risk mitigation in a resource-constrained context. The workshop will discuss how volcano science could be advanced as a result of fostering country partnerships through the establishment of a new community-driven network that focuses on supporting volcano scientists from Lower-to Middle-Income Countries (LMIC’s). Feedback from the workshop and the accompanying survey will channel directly into the establishment and the functioning of the network under IAVCEI to ensure that it meets the needs of the community.
We will report on this workshop during the upcoming IUGG General Assembly in Montreal, Canada, during an informal meeting on 15th July 2019 at 3-5 pm, room 523B. Anyone attending IUGG is welcome to join this information session.
The workshop is funded by IAVCEI, IUGG, The University of the West Indies, USAID and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
