UPDATE: Deadline of the Call of Sessions has been moved to July 20, 2019.
To commemorate IAVCEI’s Centenary, NASA have produced a short video clip showing 100 significant eruptions of the last 100 years.
Major eruptions 1919-2019: Celebrating 100 years of IAVCEI
A NASA-IAVCEI collaboration
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.

These activities are driven under the auspices of the recently
established IAVCEI - Developing Nations Network* (DNN) which has been
instigated to support scientists working in a resource or technology
constrained context. For more information on the network, survey or
*Network name to be determined following the consultation activities
Do you identify as a volcano scientist working in a resource-limited context? If so, we would kindly like to invite you to take part in our online survey which can be accessed:
Feedback from this survey will channel directly into the establishment and the functioning of a new community-driven network that is being formed under IAVCEI, and which has the aim to facilitate and enhance the active integration of volcano scientists working in resource-constrained contexts (i.e. mainly within Low- to Middle- Income Countries) into the global volcanological community. The facilitation of respectful partnerships between scientists in different countries will promote both the creation and sharing of information, knowledge and tools in a sustainable way to bridge the gap in these data-sparse regions.
We would like to hear from as many volcano scientists worldwide as possible, including academic researchers, operational staff at volcano observatories or geoscience institutes, risk managers, staff at mapping agencies, etc. Therefore, please do forward the link to the survey within your networks. The survey will remain open until 17th May 2019.
