This workshop aims to support volcanologists and key user groups (e.g. civil protection) in their implementation and use of Volcano Alert Level Systems (VALS) and communication products and protocols used at various volcano observatories around the world (including the Aviation Colour Code). Following a previous workshop in CoV9 in Chile, and a number of recent publications on VALS, it is a fitting time to share knowledge, experience and best practices so that all practitioners can benefit, particularly those who are devising new systems, or considering alternatives. Representatives from observatories and key user groups are invited to present their existing VALS and communication procedures, describe how it was developed and why, along with its use by various stakeholders. It is also an opportunity to discuss any challenges and opportunities in the design and operation of VALS. As part of the workshop, a series of discussions and exercises will be facilitated to review the diversity, challenges, and benefits of VALS. Aspects for the working group to investigate further will be identified, and a plan made for future workshops and potentially new collaborative research. The workshop will be run by the IAVCEI working group on Volcano Alert Level Systems, which is part of WOVO. A proposed output is a special issue publication from the COV9 and CoV10 workshops and session. Contributions fro who were not able to attend the conference or workshop are encouraged.
