#shareEGU20: comments on your display presentation

Now that you have uploaded your presentation materials, you might start to get some comments! This is great news and is exactly how we hope people will use our format to share ideas about their research.

If you are wondering about how you will be informed that your display presentation has comments, how to reply and what to do if you need to report a comment for violating the EGU’s Code of Conduct, we have made a really basic walk-through video to show you how.

For a great example of how comments can be used in discussion already uploaded see Maria Bostanaru Dan’s presentation materials on: The 1834 Ermellek earthquake effects and the architecture of migration after war in Baroque times. Each new comment starts a new thread, and replies are added to the thread of the original comment. Author comments are labelled ‘AC’, all other comments are ‘CC’. All comments are number chronologically by either author (e.g. AC1, AC2, AC3 etc) or commenter (e.g. CC1, CC2, CC3 etc), regardless of where they appear in the threads.

For more detailed questions stay tuned to the blog as our social media for more content coming soon.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, EGU has made the decision to cancel this year’s physical General Assembly in Vienna and instead offer a partial alternative meeting online, called #shareEGU20. Over the next few weeks in the run up to #shareEGU20, which will be held from the 4 – 8 May 2020, we will be posting regular updates and information about how to get involved, what EGU can offer during this week and how to find each other. We know that there will be many, many questions that people have, and we are learning how to do this right along with you, so please send us your questions over social media or by emailing or We’re looking forward to sharing EGU with you, online!
