Annual Workshop 2019


IASPEI/IAVCEI Inter-Association Commission
on “Volcano Seismology & Acoustics”


co-sponsored by the

European Seismological Commission – Working Group
"Seismic phenomena associated with volcanic activity"

and supported by the Villa de Garachico


September 27th – October 3rd, 2019


Garachico, Tenerife, Canary Islands




This is the annual meeting of the IASPEI/IAVCEI Commission and the 28th  meeting of the ESC working group, dedicated to aspects of volcano seismology and acoustics, and interdisciplinary studies from a wide range of volcanoes worldwide.  This year, we will focus on


“Automatic detection, identification and classification of volcanic signals”


This will be also the kick-off meeting of a new initiative of the IAVCEI/IASPEI Commission, led by Corentin Caudron (France), Benoit Taisne (Singapore) and Jurgen Neuberg (UK), to investigate new ways to process monitoring signals in an automated way, employing concepts of machine learning. However, we will also discuss the wider volcanological context, hence, all volcanologists with an interdisciplinary interest are most welcome.   


A funding opportunity for students can be found here:


We encourage participants from the volcano-seismology and infrasound community, as well as other geophysical disciplines with an interest in volcanology to join us in Tenerife.

Besides (very) informal talks and discussions, we will organise excursions to fantastic volcanological features on Tenerife, as well as a visit to the Astronomical Observatory.
