EGU General Assembly 2011 Programme

The EGU GA 2011 Programme is now online.

The scientific programme of the General Assembly 2011 includes Union Symposia, Interdivision Sessions, Educational and Outreach Symposia, as well as oral and poster sessions on disciplinary and interdisciplinary topics covering the full spectrum of the geosciences and the space and planetary sciences. Furthermore, Key Note and Medal Lectures, Great Debates in the Geosciences, Short Courses, Townhall Meetings, and Splinter Meetings complete the overall programme.

There are five different approaches to access the programme in your preferred way:

Meeting Programme: Online view of the oral and poster sub-sessions, their time and location, sorted by conference days and programme groups;
Session Programme: Online view of the sessions and their oral and poster sub-sessions, sorted by programme groups and session numbers;
Personal Programme: Online tool to generate your own personal programme by selecting specific presentations or sessions. To be printed, saved in the Copernicus Office (for later recall or modification), or generated as PDF;
Papers of Special Interest: Listing of those abstracts which were selected by the respective Conveners to be of special interest for the press & media representatives.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna for the General Assembly 03-08 April 2011.
