- 31 October 2019 5pm GMT - Deadline for Nominations, stating your intention to develop a proposal to host CoV12 in 2022.
- 28 November 2019 5pm GMT - Deadline for written Proposals for hosting COV12 in 2022.
Background: To date there have been ten “Cities on Volcanoes” (COV) conferences, with COV11 scheduled for May 2020. The purpose of these meetings is to bring together volcanologists, civil authorities, sociologists, psychologists, emergency managers, economists and city planners to enhance volcanic crises preparedness and management in cities and densely populated areas.
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?

On behalf of Commission on the Chemistry of Volcanic Gases (CCVG) of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI), we are delighted to invite the international geochemical community working on volcanic gases to participate in the 14th CCVG Workshop in Hokkaido, Japan, from 29 May to 5 June 2020.
Main aims of the workshop are to share and discuss recent developments in observation techniques, results and interpretations of volcanic gas studies. The core activities of the workshop will be composition and flux measurements using direct sampling and remote sensing techniques in active vents, plume, and soil emissions.
The workshop will include two days of scientific presentations and discussions followed by three days of field observations. Measurements will be carried out at Usu, Tarumae and Tokachi volcanoes.
Pre-workshop observations, mainly devoted to plume measurements using remote sensing techniques, will be offered as an option and will take place at Asama volcano in Central Japan from 26 to 29 May 2020. The excursion includes one day of field work at the volcano and one spare day in case of bad weather conditions.
Registration and Abstract submission will open in November 2019, along with release of the Third Circular to provide detailed information on costs and eventual grant options, as well as deadlines. Allinformation will be made available through the website:
