On behalf of the Volcanological Society of Japan, the Organizing Committee invites the international scientific community to participate in the IAVCEI Scientific Assembly. The main theme of the conference will be forecasting volcanic activity: reading and translating the messages of nature for society. 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 impact of eruptions.

Mid-conference field trips will be offered to visit Sakurajima and other nearby volcanoes, as well as pre- and post-conference field trips to visit a variety of volcanoes and volcanic environments in Japan and other countries.

The scientific program will include symposia covering a broad variety of volcanological fields.
