The Town Hall proposal submission site is now open. Town Halls offer an opportunity for government agencies, academic programs, special projects, and other focused interest groups to gather input from the broader AGU Community. They are open to all meeting participants.

All Town Hall proposals must be submitted through the online system. Please review the Town Hall submission tutorial prior to submission. There is no fee for proposing a Town Hall. The deadline for all proposals is 6 August 2014, 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.

The Fall Meeting Program Committee will review and assess the proposals and finalize the schedule for all approved Town Halls. Letters of notification regarding Town Halls will be distributed via e-mail in early October.
