Geothermal Volcanology Workshop 2019

Institute of Volcanology and Seismology

About Conference

III international seminar on geothermal volcanology (Geothermal Volcanology Workshop 2019) will be held from 05 to 08 September 2019 in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia.

Kamchatka is an active volcanic, seismic and hydrothermal region. Active volcanism is accompanied by magma injections into host structures, magmatic fracturing and the formation of hydrothermal systems adjacent to volcanoes. Engineering study of productive geothermal reservoirs is a necessary condition for their effective use for heat and power supply. Geomechanical analysis of the magmatic fracturing regime with seismic data is extremely important for predicting volcanic activity. It is also useful for analyzing the productivity of geothermal reservoirs and as the analog of hydrocarbon reservoirs development with hard-to-recover reserves.

The interdisciplinary focus of this workshop will bring together scientists to sol ve problems which transcend the framework of international borders.

Geothermal Volcanology Workshop 2019 provides a unique opportunity to meet with other scientists working in the Far East segment of the North-West Pacific as it makes an excellent presentation for those willing to participate in research of this unique region, will combine the efforts of scientists for geothermal energy research in the areas of modern volcanism.

Abstract submission is until May 1, 2019. 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. Please do not include any graphics. Please submit your abstract via e-mail

Abstracts will be reviewed with regard to scientific quality and suitability for the conference. Accepted abstracts will be designated for either oral or poster presentation at the discretion of the organizing committee; authors with a preference for poster presentation should note this on the online submission form. Each presenting author is generally allowed to present one paper or poster as a first author at the conference; multiple presentations will be dependent on the available program space. The notification of acceptance of abstracts will be sent by June 1, 2019.

TIME ALLOTTED for Oral Presentations: 20 minutes total (13 minutes talk + 5 minutes for discussion + 2 minutes for changeover between speakers)


Transport: Daily flights between Moscow and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, frequent flights from, Khabarovsk and Vladivostok. Participants from the US west coast can take a direct flight from Anchorage to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. For the participants from Japan and China, the connecting flights via Vladivostok is the easiest way to get to the place of destination.

Weather: The beginning of September in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is usually sunny with a temperature of +16 °С, but the possibility of a rain is not ruled out.

Cost: Workshop registration fee: 3000 rub. (includes the expenses for organization and conducting of the workshop and general events).

Accommodation: Hotels "Edelweiss", "Petropavlovsk", "Avacha" and "Oktyabrskaya". The most inexpensive rooms (about $ 100) are in the hotel "Edelweiss", which is located near the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology FEB RAS.

Support: The organizers expect support from the Russian Foundation for Scientific Research (RSF), Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR), JSC Teplo Zemli, JSC Geotherm, International Geothermal Association (IGA), PJSC Gazpromneft.
