Scope Volcanic disasters are caused by many volcanic phenomena, including ash fall, pyroclastic flow, debris avalanche, lahar, and lava flow. A wide range of technologies, including simulation, data processing on GIS, and communication techniques, are required to minimize damages caused by volcanic hazards. It is essential to research volcanic hazards mapping, eruption scenarios, event tree, estimation of tephra falls, and probabilistic eruption assessments and develop basic volcanic research to support hazard assessments. This session invites presentations and broad reviews related to these topics. Contributions on database technology, case studies of social and school educations, the Next Generation Volcano Research, and specific examples of eruption crisis events are also encouraged.
