There are many benefits to being a member of IAVCEI because volcanology is a truly international and inter-disciplinary research field, and IAVCEI is the only international learned society or association for volcanology. It is a great vehicle for networking internationally with colleagues who have related interests, or if you are a research student or early career researcher, for beginning to develop your scientific network, and your international profile as a research scientist in one of the many volcanological disciplines.
Secondly, IAVCEI Scientific Assemblies, General Assemblies and Cities on Volcanoes conferences, and the workshops of its Research Commissions and Working Groups are truly international, attended by leading research scientists from all over the world. They are held at different international locations each time, always in proximity to important volcanic provinces. This allows members to participate in major conferences at fantastic locations all over the world, enjoying a great diversity of cutting edge research symposia and workshops by the world’s leading scientists, but also to visit the nearby volcanic provinces and benefit from those field experiences.
IAVCEI MEMBERS will receive all the below benefits:
IAVCEI members will be able to apply for seed money from IAVCEI to organize a meeting or workshop, on behalf of commissions, working groups or other focus groups.
In circumstances where focus groups that are not existing commissions or working groups, would like to organize a once-only meeting or workshop, and would like to apply for IAVCEI seed money, the leaders at least should first become IAVCEI members, and if possible, seek involvement of one or more members in submitting their proposal to IAVCEI.
