COV11 Postponed for June 2022!!

The Local Organizing Committee has been working very hard behind the scenes, making sure that the next edition of Cities on Volcanoes shall be a fully safe and successful conference, considering the extraordinary global public health issue of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Given these unprecedented circumstances, the COV11 Local Organizing Committee (LOC), the IAVCEI Executive Committee, and Cities and Volcanoes (CAV) Commissioners have jointly decided to postpone COV11 for June 2022.

We invite you to stay tuned for the announcement of New Dates for COV11, as well as all overall procedures and activities regarding the Conference.

We would like to thank all our Members and Partners for their continued support and participation!

Cities on Volcanoes conferences promote networking and face-to-face exchanges between volcanologists and non-volcanologists from all over the world: postponing the conference to June 2022 – hopefully, to take place in a safer world – is the preferred alternative to what would have been a poorly attended meeting in June 2021.

We sincerely hope that all of you will support the highly popular Cities and Volcanoes conference series, going strong for the last 22 years, by maintaining plans for your attendance at the June 2022 COV11 conference. Your support and commitment to attend COV11 in June 2022 will ensure the continuance of this engaging inter-disciplinary conference series into the future. We will be more than happy to greet you then!

In the coming weeks, we will circulate a revised schedule with new dates and deadlines for abstract submission and registration.

The Scientific Program, as well as Conference Workshops and Field Trips, will be rescheduled in due time in 2021.

We sincerely look forward to seeing you all in Heraklion next June!

Stay safe, and stay tuned.
