Hints, tips and advice about EGU General Assembly participation

The first time I visited the EGU General Assembly I would have been lost without hints and tips from colleagues who had been to previous General Assemblies. We’re looking to put together some tips/hints/advice for participants at the EGU General Assembly in 2010, particularly for first time participants.

What tips and hints do you have that would be useful for fellow participants at EGU in Vienna? Everything from science to socialising, you can leave them in the comments or email them.

Some of the most useful pieces of information shared with me were about the supermarket and park behind the Austria Centre and the refreshments available during breaks and the last poster session of the day. My most useful link is the transport route planner at Wiener Linien.

Welcome to the official blog for the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2010.

The blog will bring together articles that are in the daily newsletter, highlight media coverage of EGU2010 (traditional, new and social) and occasional voxpops. If you would like to contribute to this official blog please contact Jennifer Holden with your idea.

This year a blogroll is being put together of blogs who are discussing issues related to the EGU General Assembly 2010. These are not EGU sanctioned blogs, rather a resource helping attendees know what is out there. If you are a blogger please submit your blog details to us.

We look forward to meeting you at the General Assembly in Vienna on 2-7 May 2010.
