IAVCEI members are invited to submit nominations for the 2020 IAVCEI Volcano Surveillance and Crisis Response Award, which will be delivered at the Cities on Volcanoes COV11 meeting in Heraklion (Creta) in May 2020.
Nominations may be made on behalf of an individual, individuals, or an observatory team, that has/have demonstrated exemplary service to the development of observatory-based volcanology and/or response to volcanic crises.
Motivations and instructions are available on the IAVCEI website at URL: https://www.iavceivolcano.org/
- 31 October 2019 5pm GMT - Deadline for Nominations, stating your intention to develop a proposal to host CoV12 in 2022.

IAVCEI 2021 Scientific Assembly
15–19 FEBRUARY 2021, ROTORUA, NEW ZEALAND
The IAVCEI 2021 Scientific Assembly will be hosted at Rotorua within the volcanically active Taupo Volcanic Zone. Scientific sessions will provide a close tie between its volcanic landscapes and processes and the latest advances in research. The themes of the Assembly encompass the disciplines that seek to understand volcanism and magmatism, including natural processes, investigative techniques and the benefits and impacts to society. We welcome sessions linked to the following themes for the scientific programme:
- Magmatism and tectonism
- Using field data, geophysics, geochemistry, statistics, and modeling to probe volcanic and plutonic systems
- Eruption triggers and styles: From precursors to eruption
- Volatile influences on eruption style, degassing, atmospheric chemistry and climate
- Evaluating and communicating volcanic hazards and risks
- Monitoring: developing new approaches and novel applications of existing technologies
- Volcanoes, energy, resources and the environment
- Volcanoes and society: from indigenous peoples to a multicultural world
- Future thinking - what's on the horizon that could be a game-changer?
