AGU Fall Meeting 2016: Come meet the EGU!

Are you attending the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco next week (12th-16th December?) If so come and visit the EGU booth! You’ll find us in the Exhibition Hall in Booth 1231, just opposite the Recharge Lounge (top right of the exhibition hall). You can find us on the map of the exhibition hall online.

In attendance will be the EGU’s Executive Secretary (Philippe) and the Communications Officer (Laura).  Stop by and speak to them about becoming a member of the Union, the upcoming General Assembly in Vienna and all our other initiatives.  Right next door to us, in booth number 1229, you’ll find our publishers and conference organisers, They’ll be able to answer your questions about publishing in our open access journals and much more!

As well as being at the booth, Laura will be taking part in a number of sessions during the Fall Meeting. If you are interested in learning more about how to use social media as an academic, or have questions about how to divulge the work of your research group or institute using social media platforms, come along to the  Communicating Your Science: Ask the Experts round-table discussion. From 10:30am to 12:30pm on Wednesday, Laura will be taking questions on all things social media.

If blogging if more your thing, then the Blogging and Social Media Forums on Wednesday afternoon (101: 2:00 to 3:00 pm / 202: 3:00 to 4:00 pm) are for you. In the first part of the forum Laura will be talking about the nuts & bolts of blogging (particularly with WordPress). From 3pm onwards a panel of bloggers, including Laura, will discuss the future trends in science blogging & social media.

Don’t forget that many of the EGU Division presidents, officers and early career scientists (ECS) representatives will be in attendance at the Fall Meeting; feel free to reach out to them to discuss Division specific initiatives. Laura is also the ECS point of contact at the EGU Office, so drop by the booth if you have questions about ECS activates at EGU.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco next week!
