The Local Organizing Committee is happy to announce that the website and registration is open for the IAVCEI 5th Volcanic Geology Workshop – IAVCEI 5VGW that will be held at the Massey University in Palmerston North and Ohakune, New Zealand between 25 February – 4 March 2019.
The IAVCEI 5th Volcanic Geology Workshop consists of an on-campus workshop (one day) with presentations and discussions and field trip (six days) to the Taupo Volcanic Zone active and young volcanic terrains.
In commemoration of the IUGG centennial in 2019 IAVCEI has been awarded a grant to facilitate a workshop to be held next year supporting international cooperation in geosciences.
The focus of the workshop is fostering developed-developing country partnerships for the advancement of global volcano science, including the development of best-practice engagement protocols.
These activities are driven under the auspices of the recently established IAVCEI - Developing Nations Network (DNN) which has been established to support scientists working in a resource or technology constrained context.
