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:
IAVCEI Scientific Assembly
15–19 FEBRUARY 2021, ROTORUA, NEW ZEALAND
Call for Pre- and Post-Meeting Workshop Proposals
The IAVCEI 2021 Scientific Assembly will be hosted within the volcanically active Taupo Volcanic Zone. Scientific sessions and field trips will provide a close tie between its volcanic landscapes and processes and the latest advances in research. Half-day and full-day workshops held pre- or post- conference will provide the perfect platform to explore and share modern techniques and topics relevant to research in volcanology in greater detail than can be achieved in the scientific sessions. Typical workshops should involve presentation of research papers, panel forums or demonstrations with the aim of involving participants in interactive discussion to facilitate interdisciplinary exchange between researchers and stakeholders.
Workshop Proposal Format
Each workshop proposal must include:
- Title of the workshop
- Workshop conveners (names, affiliation and email) and any invited presenters
- Description of the workshop (max ½ page)
- Planned format of the workshop (duration, preferred day(s), pre- or post- conference, presentations vs interactive,…)
- Workshop logistical needs (e.g., anticipated number of participants, style of room, catering, AV/computer requirements, additional needs)
- Any website or links relevant to the workshop topic
- If relevant, any relation to past workshops offered at previous IAVCEI conferences.
- Any association to current IAVCEI commissions or working groups.
Workshop Proposal Submission
Proposal should be submitted via the online portal on the webpage: https://confer.eventsair.com/iavcei2021/workshops
Workshop Preparation and Organization Timeline
- Proposal Submission Deadline: 1st November 2019
- Notification of Selection: 25th November 2019
- Uploading of Workshop information to website: 1st December 2019
Do not hesitate to contact the IAVCEI 2021 Workshops organizers if you have any questions:
- 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.
