This years general assembly is over and its buzz still ringing in my ears. Here are a few spotlight impressions fresh off my mind. In the coming days and weeks, the complete brand new ECS representative team will present itself on the blog, and we will update you in more detail about highlights and low points of the conference.
Do we have to mention it was amazing? Yes, I’ve heard people say “I don’t really like the talks at EGU. The quality is not very high.” If you really feel this way, think about convening your own session next year! Look out for information on the blog or here. Ideal persons to contact are the newly appointed science officers who represent topical sections of the division (more info soon!).
The Sushi platters of science, medal lectures are full of artfully crafted delicacies and easy to digest. Several can be found online for you to enjoy again, although sadly not the Beno Gutenberg lecture by Roel Snieder.
I filled gaps in my science program with useful and entertaining workshops and short courses. You could learn about new software, hear tips on writing grants, watch science communicators in action, or receive hands-on strategies for managing your PhD work from the Gutenberg medalist himself, to name just a few.
LO AND BEHOLD: After EGU is before EGU.
The next general assembly will take place from 23 to 28 April 2017 in Vienna, Austria (surprise, surprise!).
To make the General Assembly even better, please leave feedback. Note that neither the quality of coffee nor the quantity of beer are likely to increase.
Consider uploading your presentation: Colleagues will be glad to revisit your contribution and making a pdf available increases the visibility of you work.
And don’t forget to pass by again soon to hear more about the ECS team’s composition, future activities and EGU2016 highlights!
