The aim of this workshop is to focus on the state of the art in the physics of volcanoes in order to give participants a better understanding of the physical and tectonic processes related to volcanoes and the associated hazards. The programme will involve a series of lectures about the following topics: • Understanding the production, evolution and eruption of magma • Physics of the volcanic systems • Magmatic processes within continental and oceanic rift zones • Migration and storage of magma in the crust • Volcano seismicity and analysis of seismicity in order to understand distinct volcanic processes • Analysis of ground deformation to monitor magma movements and eruptions The topics will be covered using a combination of theoretical, numerical and experimental approaches. It will be highlighted the importance of integrating observations and field data with theoretical and modelling results.
