Feedback on the International Conference on Integrated Approaches for Volcanic Risk Management 

The International Conference on Integrated Approaches for Volcanic Risk Management was held at Hohenheim University in Stuttgart, Germany on 11-12 September 2012.

A total of 70 participants from 18 countries around the world attended the conference. The programme included 39 oral presentations and 15 posters covering a large part of volcanic risk management fields of research.


The Programme was divided into 6 sessions:

· Hazard and risk mapping methodologies

· Management of volcanic crisis and Strategies for Disaster Risk Reduction

· Monitoring Methods

· Vulnerability and resilience of human communities

· Cross Cutting Issues

· Information Management and Decision support




And the Book of Abstracts is available in electronic format:



The quality of the presentations was very good and participants showed a strong interest in MIAVITA project outcomes; especially in the bottom-up approaches developed for community-based risk management, vulnerability assessment and risk mapping.


Many thanks to all the participants and organizers who have contributed to make this event a success!
