ECR-Net: IAVCEI’s Early-Career Researchers Network
A lively atmosphere as early career and senior volcanologists network at a traditional Japanese restaurant at the IAVCEI General Assembly in Kagoshima in July 2013.
The IAVCEI ECR-Net is a global group of volcanology researchers dedicated to connecting Early-Career Researchers in volcanology and related subdisciplines worldwide.
IAVCEI Scientific Assembly, Portland, U.S.A., 14-18 August 2017
⇒ ECR specific programming includes:
Early career mentoring fair;
Early career social event;
Crisis communication panel debate;

The ECR-Net Initiative
The IAVCEI Early-Career Researchers Network (ECR-Net) was established during the IAVCEI 2013 conference in Kagoshima (Japan) by a group of Early-Career enthusiasts and then-IAVCEI President Ray Cas, in order to (1) support career development, (2) form an active network and (3) coordinate specific activities for early-career volcanologists. Since then, the ECR-Net working group has held several social meetings, interacted with IAVCEI’s Executive Committee, set up ECR discussion platforms on social media, and prepared an early-career dedicated programme for the IAVCEI Assembly in Portland in August 2017.
As a result of an international collaborative project called VolFilm short films on volcanic hazards and their impacts are now available to view download.
These public information and educational films are the first in a planned series and cover pyroclastic flows and lahars with English, French and Spanish versions. The films have been produced under the auspices of IAVCEI and Global Volcano Model (GVM) and funded from a variety of sources but principally by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and DfID (UK). The project partnership includes: Bristol University (UK), the British Geological Survey (UK), GNS Science (New Zealand), Goma Volcano Observatory, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (France), the University of East Anglia (UK), Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (Italy), the Meteorological of Vanautu, the Seismic Research Centre, University if the West Indies (Trinidad), The Montserrat Volcano Observatory, the US Geological Survey, Instituto Geofisico at Escuela Politécnica Nacional (IG-EPN), Ecuador and the General Directorate of Mineral Research and Exploration (Turkey).
There are plans for six more films on hazards (ash, volcanic gas and lavas) and translation into further languages and also films of personal experiences by people affected by volcanic hazards.
Welcome to the new IAVCEI website.
A lot of work remains from a graphic point of view, but contents from the old website have been almost all transferred.
IMPORTANT: due to bureaucratic matters, at the moment the purchase of volumes of Bulletin of Volcanology from the IAVCEI website is suspended. You can still visit the Springer web site and purchase from there.
We apologize in advance for any malfunction of the website; we are working on it!
Dear IAVCEI member,
As you probably know from the last issue of IAVCEI NEWS, we will reintroduce the payment for the IAVCEI membership starting from January 1, 2016.
IAVCEI has increased its activity in recent years, financing grants for researchers from developing counties, international workshops and schools, and providing financial contributions to COV meetings and IAVCEI scientific assemblies. This activity requires income that cannot be guaranteed by only the voluntary contributions from members and from IUGG annual payments to IAVCEI. Thus, we find a need for membership fees to provide a regular annual income, similar to other international scientific associations.
During the IAVCEI 2013 conference in Kagoshima, Japan, an inaugural meeting was held to establish the IAVCEI Early-Career Researchers Network (ECRN). This initiative was initiated by Ray Cas, IAVCEI-President at the time, and a group of EC enthousiasts. Currently, the network is under construction, and many efforts will be undertaken in the upcoming two years, in order to be fully operational by the next IAVCEI Assembly in Portland in 2017.
