VMSG 2023

Welcome to the Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group meeting 2023, which will be taking place in Bloomsbury, London, from the 4th to 6th of January 2023, with post-conference outreach activities taking place at the Natural History Museum on the 7th January. This conference will have a hybrid format: whilst we hope that most delegates will attend in London, online participation is also possible. The local organising committee are the Volcanologists of London, led by Dr Chiara Petrone. Click here for the scientific programme.
