The past week in Vienna was a busy one! Hordes of Earth, ocean and planetary scientists came together to present, share and discuss their most recent scientific findings at the 2016 General Assembly.
The conference was a great success, with over 4800 oral and 10300 poster presentations, as well as close to a 1000 PICO presentations too! Participants at the conference could pick talks and posters from a staggering selection of over 600 scientific sessions, as well as in excess of 300 side events. The programme in 2016 was indeed rich and varied! Helping participants choose from the vast selection of science on offer, 15,000 copies of EGU Today were distributed throughout the week.
The conference was attended by 13,650 scientists from 109 countries, of which 25% were students and 53% early career scientists (under the age of 35 years). There was also a keen media presence and reporting, and thousands of visits to the webstreams as well as to GeoLog.
We thank all of you very much for your attendance and your active contribution to this great event.
We look forward to seeing you all next year! The EGU General Assembly is back from 23–28 April 2017 in Vienna, Austria.
