Call for Proposals for Scientific Sessions: https://confer.eventsair.com/iavcei2021/call-for-sessions

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:

Program Themes

  • Magmatism and tectonism
  • Using field data, geophysics, geochemistry, statistics, and modelling 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?
