Invites


The hosting Chilean volcanology community invites the international scientific community and authorities that are involved in managing risks and hazards in volcanically active areas to participate in the Cities on Volcanoes 9 Conference to be held in Puerto Varas, Chile, from November 20th until November 25th, 2016, spring season in the Southern Hemisphere. The slogan and main focus of the meeting will be ‘Understanding volcanoes and society: the key for risk mitigation’. Several symposia are being arranged oriented to understand volcanic phenomena, recognize the hazards and their impact on people, emergency management, community education, case histories and risk mitigation to reduce the impacts of volcanism and its effects on society.

Chile is a country well-known not only because of the recent and frequent explosive volcanic activity, but also because of its friendly and warm people, amazing landscapes, delicious food and famous wines from vineyards grown on volcanic soils. Puerto Varas is a small pleasant tourist town, and probably one of the best places to be in November, combining a variety of outdoors activities together with an enjoyable nightlife that undoubtedly will make the meeting more attractive.
