The next Cities on Volcanoes 10 (CoV10) Conference will be held on 2 – 7 September in the city of Napoli, Italy.
The title of CoV 10 is “Millennia of Stratification between Human Life and Volcanoes: strategies for coexistence” and intends to focus the attention of the Conference on the inherent resilience of human societies to volcanic risk, as millennia of coexistence with volcanoes prove that volcanic environments are fundamentally perceived as resources. At the same time, building and strengthening this resilience in modern and complex societies exposed to volcanic risk, especially on volcanoes with long periods of dormancy where risk is poorly perceived, is a great challenge.
On the new Web Sitewww.citiesonvolcanoes10.com you will find the COV 10 First Circular, which contains the main useful information on the scientific and logistic aspects of the Conference. The Call for Sessions and Workshops/Courses is already active and the deadline for the submission is 30 October 2017.
The next CoV is to take place 20 years after that first meeting, and we believe that this will be an ideal occasion to gather the entire international community again in Napoli to review what has been the cultural impact of 20 years of activity of Cities on Volcanoes events in bridging Science and Society, and to work together to outline future developments.
We invite you to participate at the 10th edition of Cities on Volcanoes and hope to see you in Napoli.
