Blogs and social media at EGU 2019 – tune in to the conference action

Blogs and social media at EGU 2019 – tune in to the conference action

With hundreds of oral presentations, PICO sessions and poster presentations taking place each day, it can be difficult to keep up with everything that is on offer during the General Assembly.

As well as finding highlights of interesting conference papers, lectures and workshops in the daily newsletter at the General Assembly, EGU Today, you can also keep up to date with all the conference activities online.

Blogging

GeoLog will be updated regularly throughout the General Assembly, highlighting some of the meeting’s most interesting sessions, workshops and lectures, as well as featuring interviews with scientists attending the Assembly.

The EGU Division Blogs will report on division specific interesting research and sessions during the Assembly, so you can catch up on any sessions you’ve missed!

Stay tuned to the EGU Blog Network for further coverage of science presented at the conference.

Tweeting

Participants can keep updated with General Assembly goings on by following the EGU Twitter account (@EuroGeosciences) and the conference hashtag (#EGU19). You can also direct questions to the EGU communications staff and other participants using #EGU19, or by tweeting to @EuroGeosciences directly. If you’ve got the Assembly app, you can share snippets of great sessions straight from there!

This year, each of the programme groups also has its own hashtag. If you’re in a Geomorphology (GM) session, say GM2.1, you can tweet about it using #EGU19GM, or if you’re in one of the Short Courses (SC) sessions, use #EGU19SC – just add the acronym of the respective programme group to #EGU19! A full list of conference hashtags is available here, and in the programme book. Conveners are welcome to add their own hashtags into the mix too! Just let everyone know at the start of the session.

Facebook

The EGU communications staff will be advertising General Assembly sessions and will post about research being presented at the Assembly on Facebook. Just type European Geosciences Union into the Facebook search bar to find the EGU official page, and like it to receive the updates.

Instagram

For behind the scenes access to the conference, including organisational snippets, chats with conference attendees and informal coverage of the science presented throughout the week, follow us on Instagram too! Will you be sharing updates about the conference on the social media platform too? Be sure to tag your posts with the conference hashtag #EGU19 and join the conversation!

And more!

While these will be the main media streams during the Assembly, you can also search for European Geosciences Union on LinkedIn and YouTube to keep up with us there!

Social media guidelines

The EGU encourages an open dialogue on social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) and blogging platforms during the General Assembly. The default assumption is to allow open discussion of General Assembly oral, PICO, and poster presentations on social media. However, please respect any request from an author to not disseminate the contents of their presentation. So that conference participants can embrace social media while at the same time remaining respectful of presenting authors’ work and protecting their research output, we’ve put together some social media guidelines, which you can find on the EGU 2019 website.

The icons above may be downloaded from the EGU General Assembly website for inclusion on slides or posters to clearly express when an author does or does not want their results posted on any social media networks or blogs.

You can find out more about our social media guidelines and conference rules of conduct online.

The EGU General Assembly will take place from 07 to 12 April 2019 in Vienna, Austria. For the full session programme and more information on the General Assembly, see the EGU 2019 website and follow us on Twitter (#EGU19 is the official conference hashtag) and Facebook.

Introducing EGU’s new Communications Officer!

Introducing EGU’s new Communications Officer!

Meet the newest member of EGU’s communications team, Olivia Trani! Olivia joined the EGU office in February and since then has been managing GeoLog and the EGU blog network, running our social media channels, and developing EGU networking activities for early career scientists.

Hello from the EGU Executive Office! I have been working as the new EGU Communications Officer for the past few months (you may have seen me at the 2018 General Assembly), but I would like to take the time to officially introduce myself.

I am originally from the United States where I completed my bachelor’s in Biology and Environmental Science at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. As an undergraduate, I had many great research experiences, such as studying crabs and terrapins by canoe in the swamps of Virginia, hunting for American chestnuts in Maine’s hardwood forests, and examining microscopic fungi in the lab.

I then obtained a master’s in Science Journalism from Boston University, and following graduation, I had the opportunity to intern as a science writer for both Inside Science and the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in Washington D.C.

A couple of months ago, I jumped over the Atlantic to join the EGU office team in Munich, and since then I have been managing EGU’s network of blogs and social media channels as well as organising initiatives for early career scientists. I also organised events geared towards science communication and early career scientists at the 2018 General Assembly. To do all this, I’ve been working closely with the EGU Media and Communications Manager, Bárbara Ferreira, and the EGU’s dedicated team of early career scientist representatives. I am very excited to continue sharing science here at the EGU office and collaborate with the EGU community!

Feel free to contact me at networking@egu.eu if you have any questions about EGU’s communication outlets or our early career scientist network. I look forward to hearing from you!
