The Department of Geology and Geoenvironment of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, in collaboration with post graduate programme of "Environmental, Disaster and Crisis Management Strategies" (EDCM) and the Natural History Museum (University of Crete) will host the Cities on Volcanoes 11 Conference from 23-27 May 2020 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.


The title of the meeting will be "Volcanoes and Society: environment, health and hazards".

It will be focused on multidisciplinary monitoring volcanic environments in the vicinity of cities and highly touristic areas. At the same time, the ability to recognize the hazards and their impact on people, emergency management by civil protection authorities, community education, case studies and risk mitigation to reduce the impacts of volcanism and its effects on society will undoubtedly be discussed.

Crete is a well-known island in the Mediterranean not only because of its geographic position at the crossroads of three continents, but also because of its friendly and warm people, amazing landscapes, delicious food and famous archaeological sites like Knossos, the largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete.
