From now, up until 16 January 2014, you can submit your abstract for the upcoming EGU General Assembly (EGU 2014). In addition to established scientists, PhD students and other early career researchers are welcome to submit abstracts to present their research at the conference.
Further, the EGU encourages undergraduate and master students to submit abstracts on their dissertations or final-year projects. The EGU recognises that there are many outstanding students who would benefit from attending and presenting at the General Assembly and, therefore, provides a discounted registration rate to this group. Interested undergraduates can apply to present a poster (or talk) on research undertaken in a laboratory setting, on a mapping or field project they’ve been involved in during their degrees, or any other research project of relevance.
You can browse through the EGU 2014 sessions here. Clicking on ‘please select’ will allow you to search for sessions by Programme Group and submit your abstract to the relevant session either as plain text, LaTeX, or a MS Word document. Further guidelines on how to submit an abstract are available on the EGU 2014 website.
Last year we introduced an innovative presentation format – Presenting Interactive Content, better known as PICO. PICO sessions bring together the advantages of both oral and poster sessions, allowing authors to present the essence of their work and follow it up with interactive discussion. Please note that some sessions are ‘PICO only’ sessions, meaning you cannot select oral/poster preference.
The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 16 January 2014, 13:00 CET. If you would like to apply for financial support, please submit an application no later than 29 November 2013.
EGU 2014 will take place from 27 April to 02 May 2014 in Vienna, Austria. For more information on the General Assembly, see the EGU 2014 website and follow us on Twitter (#EGU2014 is the conference hashtag) and Facebook.
