Upcoming Events



We’re very excited to announce that our next annual conference VMSG 2023 will be held in London from 4th – 6th of January. Huge thanks to the local organising committee Volcanologists of London for all their hard work bringing this about. Read on for more details and important dates for the diary!


The main conference venue will be the Clore Management Centre in Birkbeck, University of London. There will be an icebreaker on Wednesday (venue TBC) and the conference dinner will be on Thursday evening in the Earth gallery at the Natural History Museum!


The conference will be hybrid format so while we hope that most people will attend in London, online participation is also possible. The conference will be followed by an outreach day Sat 7th Jan at the Natural History Museum.


Some important dates for the diary: Mon 31st October – Abstract submission closes; Mon 14th November – Early bird registration closes; Mon 12th December – Registration closes. Later registration, up to on the day, is possible but won’t guarantee catering or conference dinner.


More details – including session titles, advice on accommodation & travel, and details of how to get involved in outreach activities – are available on the official conference website https://vmsg-2023.org/. Watch this space and follow us on Twitter @vmsg_uk and @VolcLondon for more updates!
