Recognizing that technology plays an important role in facilitating our members’ participation in the Fall Meeting, AGU has expanded and improved our virtual meeting offerings.

For the 2012, we have added a free, live streaming option for several of our key sessions, which will be open and available to all AGU members and the general public through the Fall Meeting Web site. We have also increased the number of sessions and lectures that will be provided in Video on Demand format, and we are continuing the ePoster program, which allows authors to display an electronic version of their poster on this Web site and engage viewers via an interactive discussion board.

For more information on the schedule of events that will be live streamed, or to watch a live streaming event, please check this page regularly. To receive notifications on the virtual meeting program schedule, including reminders about start times for live streaming events, text AGUVirtual to 69302! Please note that standard text messaging rates apply. Because these events are open to non-Fall Meeting attendees, please feel free to share this information with anyone you feel may be interested.
