Seeking hosts for International Monogenetic Conference in 2025

Seeking hosts for International Monogenetic Conference in 2025

The Commission on Monogenetic Volcanism is calling for host institutions for the First International Monogenetic Conference. The International Monogenetic Conferences (IMC) are the successor series to the International Maar Conferences, which ran from 2000 to 2018.  The International Maar Conferences were co-sponsored by the IAVCEI-CMV and the International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS). In line with the aims of the Commission, the goal of the new IMC series will be to provide a forum for researchers to define and understand the phenomenon of small volume magmatic systems and their surface expression as volcano fields.

The Commission intends for the new IMC to be held approximately every four years, while avoiding competition with the major IAVCEI conferences. Each conference should last about 5 days including an intra-meeting field trip. There should also be a selection of pre- and post-conference field trips offered, emphasizing monogenetic volcanism. Strong efforts should be made to facilitate access from early career researchers and participants from low-income countries. The Jim Luhr award, a distinction for a scientist who has contributed significantly to the understanding of monogenetic volcanism, should be given at the conference by the organizing committee.

The application for hosting the next IMC can be found at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1K69-_apDm3maeGXvvs5QpOuYW2bdoogC/edit.  Completed applications should be emailed to marie@igeofisica.unam.mx and graettingera@umkc.edu.  Deadline for submission is March 1, 2023.

Please reach out with questions to any of the CMV officers or committee members.
