IAVCEI 2017 Scientific Assembly

14.08 - 18.08.2017  
Portland, Oregon, USA

The IAVCEI 2017 Scientific Assembly will be held in Portland, Oregon, USA, from 14-18 August 2017.


The main theme of the conference will be "Fostering Integrative Studies of Volcanism". Following tradition, the conference will cover the complete range of IAVCEI research interests, ranging from planetary volcanology and chemistry of the Earth's interior to eruption dynamics, and will also include a practical understanding of the environmental and social impacts of eruptions.

In addition, in keeping with the theme, the meeting will explore and nurture thinking that integrates the breadth of sub-disciplines. We anticipate programming in which our younger colleagues and those from developing countries will thrive.


The scientific program will include symposia covering a broad variety of volcanological fields with plenary speakers emphasizing integrative and intersecting themes. Go to:
