Geothermal Volcanology Workshop 2020

03 September 2020 - 08 September 2020

The Geothermal Volcanology Workshop 2020 will be held from 03 to 08 September 2020 in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia.


For several years, has been convening a meeting entitled “Geothermal Volcanology Workshop” in September at the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (RAS), Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia. The first circular for this year is linked above. However, this year it will have to be at least partially a virtual meeting.

Towards that end, we invite you to consider participating in this year’s meeting (September 03-08, 2020). Virtual participation will be free of charge and your extended abstract or short paper will be published online in a proceedings volume.

Of course, if the situation with COVID-19 will improve by September you are welcome for actual participation.

Topics of scientific sessions:

  • Magma-hydrothermal systems
  • Hydrothermal systems in volcanic areas
  • Seismicity in geofluid volcanic and hydrothermal systems with active faults
  • Magmatic feeding systems of active volcanoes
  • Modeling the natural state and exploitation of geothermal reservoirs, applications to reserves estimation, feasibility study & investment
  • Relationships among geothermal energy, magmatism, metallogeny, secondary mineralization and permeability
  • Production geothermal reservoirs and hard-to-recover hydrocarbon formation conditions
  • Mechanism of geysers and other cyclic phenomena in hydrothermal systems
  • Diagenetic alteration of host rocks by hydrothermal fluid circulation


Abstract submission is until April 30, 2020.

Abstract submissions should be 0.5 page or less, 12 point Times New Roman, 1-inch margins, and include title, author(s), author(s) affiliation, author(s) email, and abstract text..  Abstracts may be uploaded within registration process and via e-mail GeothermalVolcanology2020@gmail.com
