GeoLog will be updated regularly throughout the General Assembly, highlighting some of the meeting’s most interesting sessions, workshops and lectures, as well as featuring interviews with scientists attending the Assembly.
Writers from the EGU Blog Network will also be posting about interesting research and sessions during the Assembly, so you can catch up on any sessions you’ve missed and get a feel for what’s going on in the press room through them!
As in previous years, the EGU will be compiling a list of General Assembly related blogs (the blogroll) and making them available through GeoLog. If you would like to contribute to GeoLog during the event please contact Sara Mynott at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also add your blog to the blogroll here.
Participants can keep updated with General Assembly goings on by following the EGU twitter account (@EuroGeosciences) and the conference hashtag (#EGU2014). You can also direct questions to the EGU communications staff and other participants using #EGU2014, or by tweeting to @EuroGeosciences directly. If you’ve got the Assembly app, you can share snippets of great sessions straight from there!
This year, each of the programme groups also has its own hashtag, if you’re in a Geomorphology (GM) session, say GM2.1, you can tweet about it using #EGU14GM, or if you’re in one of the Educational and Outreach Symposia (EOS), use #EGU14EOS – just add the acronym to #EGU14! A full list of conference hashtags is available here, and in the programme book.
Some sessions also have their own hashtag including the Great Debates (GDB1: #EGU14mine, GDB2: #EGU14geng), the Union Session on the IPCC results (US4: #EGU14IPCC) and the Face of the Earth Union Symposium (US3: #EGU14face). Make sure to tag your tweets accordingly if you are posting about these sessions! Conveners are welcome to add their own hashtags into the mix to! Just let everyone know at the start of the session.
While these will be the main media streams during the Assembly, you can also follow the European Geosciences Union on Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube to keep up with us there!
