INVITATION
 
Welcome to the International Conference on Evolution, Transfer and Release of Magmas and Volcanic Gases!
 
Lava/tephra and volcanic gases are two phases released to the surface at sites of active volcanism. Both have their source in crustal magma reservoirs. In recent years, our understanding of the rates and processes of magma evolution and transfer has progressed significantly, based on U-series, geospeedometric, and modeling work. At the same time, advances have been made in monitoring and modeling magma degassing, and the release of volcanic gases and aerosols into the atmosphere, with implications for magmatic processes and volcanic hazards. This meeting will provide a forum to discuss interdisciplinary approaches in constraining magmatic and volcanic processes, and to improve hazard mitigation strategies.
 
The conference will take the form of a small meeting with up to 80 participants. Much emphasis will be on discussion and poster presentation. However, up to ten keynote speakers will introduce the current state of research in selected fields. The participation of students and early career researches is encouraged to provide the opportunity of contact with more senior researchers, and to initiate international collaborative research projects. The conference will be divided into two days of talks, discussions and poster presentations, and three days of field trips.

The organizers will keep the cost for conference fee and accommodation at a minimum, and provide funding to cover a limited number of travel grants for students and early career researchers.
