S1 Volcanic geoheritage from volcanic geology perspective

In this session, we will focus on presentation of various volcanic areas with geoheritage potential. Emphasis should be paid on their geology, geomorphology, geoconservation and geoeducational values. The entire session has an ambition to show the wide variability of volcanic geology, volcanic landscapes, landforms, and other features with geoheritage value. Contributions describing geology and volcanic phenomena of such areas are warmly welcome.



S2 Qualitative and quantitative methods to measure geodiversity
within volcanic regions


Quality of any geosite is besides of educational, scientific and geoconservation values given also by its aesthetic values, as a very subjective characteristic. On the other hand, geodiversity in volcanic regions can be classified by qualitative and quantitative methods, those can be presented and discussed in this session. This session especially encourages contributors to submit their work where advanced technologies such as remote sensing, GIS, digital terrain models, drone-surveys and direct geological and geomorphological mappings are blended into a method to provide geodiversity maps.



S3 Volcanic geoheritage and its links to cosmovision
of indigenous communities


We expect contributions describing importance of volcanic phenomena for common, cultural, and spiritual life and activities of indigenous communities in different localities worldwide. Special attention should be paid on sites, where volcanic features directly influence the activities of indigenous communities, including specific technologies developed in volcanic environment. This session call for submissions dealing with volcanic hazards dealt with indigenous communities and how that knowledge can be blended into western science. Narrative descriptions of common wisdoms of human societies on the values of volcanism generated processes and landscape enriching human life are also expected among submissions to this session.



S4 Sense of place and its influence on geocultural development
in volcanic regions


Volcanic geosites are very frequently associated with specific spirit of the site, valuable for local communities. Sensing of such places plays in many cases crucial role in cultural development and sensing of the nature as a whole. Collections of legends and other oral traditions that influence even the 21st century communities are especially welcome to be submitted to this session.



S5 Geoconservation of volcanic regions under rapid
urbanization and global change


Rapid urbanization, constructions of infrastructure as well as climatic change are challenging factors in preservation and conservation of volcanic geoheritage. Problems as well as solutions experienced in different settings are welcome to be presented in this session. This session call contributions from records of valuable volcanic geoheritage loss and the lost opportunity to utilize such geoheritage for geoeducation of volcanism. This session aims to find submissions documenting good and poor practice of natural resources of volcanic landforms.



S6 Geosystem (ecosystem) services view on
volcanic geoheritage


Volcanoes are very attractive topic for wider public and may play the role of nature-ambassadors in promotion and protection of larger landscapes, where volcanic phenomena are included. Geosystem services are a new approach to value the natural capita provision to our life. While ecosystem services are gradually becoming a common practice to valorise the natural resources from the living environment perspective, while geosystem services are more focuses on the abiotic nature. So far only a handful work has been expanding the geosystem services to specifically to volcanic terrains. This session call contributions exploring the potential to develop geosystem services approach to natural resources and their interaction with human societies in volcanic regions.



S7 Volcanic geoparks: from local to global

Volcanic geoparks are being established on various continents and at various levels (regional, national, continental, global). Contributions describing the development of volcanic geoparks and their networks in different countries are welcome in this session. Differences in goals and aims as well as experience with establishing and management of geoparks at different levels and locations is inspirative for other geoparks, including those planned. This session welcomes contribution from documentation of the process to establish volcanic geoparks as well as stories from already operating volcanic geoparks. We particularly interested in to have contributions dealing with the diversity of the volcanic features and the strategy how such geoparks can be used for natural hazard resilience education.



S8 Geoheritage for developing resilient society against
volcanic hazard


Geoheritage is a discipline with a good experience in interpretation of geological scientific outcomes to wide public. This expertise could be transferred to hazard-education, to better communicate hazardous phenomena to wide public with an aim to reduce misunderstanding and overlooking of geological-hazard information (that can be poorly understandable).



S9 Communicating volcanic geoheritage to wide public

New digital technologies provide innovative tools in in visualisation and communication. This progress has been reflected also in presentation of cultural heritage and geoheritage. New ways in propagation and popularization of volcanic geoheritage will be presented in this session including social media utilization, citizen science, dedicated mobile application development or mapping tools are among the expected contributions.
