Abstract deadline for EGU 2016 fast approaching: A first-timer’s guide to the 2015 General Assembly

Are you considering attending the upcoming EGU General Assembly in Vienna? The conference brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences.. This year, the meeting will be held from the 17 to 22 April at the Austria Centre Vienna. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is upon us, closing next Wednesday the 13th January at 13:00 CET.

With 12,000 participants in a massive venue, the conference can be a confusing and, at times, overwhelming place. In addition, working out how the conference presentation slots are structured, how to submit an abstract and what happens after you have done isn’t always straight forward, especially if you are a first time attendee.

To help you find your way, we have compiled an introductory handbook filled with history, tips for submitting your abstract, presentation pointers, travel tips and a few facts about Vienna and its surroundings. Download your copy of the EGU General Assembly guide here!
