EGU 2019: Registration open & townhall and splinter meeting requests

EGU 2019: Registration open & townhall and splinter meeting requests

The EGU General Assembly brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting that covers all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The conference is taking place in Vienna on 7–12 April 2019, providing an opportunity for both established scientists and early career researchers to present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of the geosciences.

Registration and abstract submission

Early registration for the conference is open until 28 February 2019. You can register online on the Register and Venue section of the General Assembly website.

Note that EGU members benefit from reduced registration rates! If you register to attend the conference before 28 February 2019 and you are an EGU member, your weekly ticket will cost €390. A similar early-bird discount is available to non-members, but weekly ticket costs are significantly higher: €530. Students and emeritus attendees enjoy reduced rates as well, and they face even lower ticket costs when registering both before the early-bird deadline as and EGU members.

Those registering after 28 February will no longer enjoy early registration discounts, regardless of their membership and career status. To become a member, or renew your EGU membership, go to www.egu.eu/membership/.

You can get a feel for the great geoscience that will be discussed at the meeting by browsing through the EGU 2019 sessions. Clicking on ‘please select’ allows you to search for sessions by Programme Group. You’ll then be able to view the sessions in more detail and submit an abstract to its relevant session.

As announced a few weeks ago, only one abstract as first author will be permitted, with a few exceptions. Authors are allowed as first author to submit either one regular abstract plus one abstract solicited by a convener, or two solicited abstracts. A second regular abstract can be submitted to the Educational and Outreach Sessions (EOS) programme group.

In addition, only EGU members will be able to submit abstracts to the meeting. You can become a member or renew your membership online on the EGU website or while registering for the EGU General Assembly.

The deadline for abstract submission is 10 January 2019, 13:00 CET. The full meeting programme will be made available in late February 2019.

Submit your townhall and splinter meeting requests

Also available on the conference website are the request forms for townhall and splinter meetings.

Townhall meetings are meetings open to all conference participants. At townhall meetings, new initiatives or decisions are announced to a larger audience, followed by an open discussion on the matter raised. If you’d like to organise a townhall, be sure to submit your request before 18 January 2019.

During the conference, side meetings on non-commercial matters organized by participants can be reserved for two successive time blocks free of charge in the rooms mentioned below. Commercial meetings are subject to a charge dependent on the meeting size – for details check the website. Be sure to submit your splinter-meeting request before 22 March 2019.

More details about the short courses, splinter and townhall meetings at the conference will be given in an upcoming blog post.
