Thank you to everyone who submitted sessions for this year’s meeting in Washington, D.C. Submissions are now closed. Look for acceptance notifications in mid-June, after which the abstract submission period will open.
We received a record number of proposals spanning AGU’s science―including the new GeoHealth section―and saw high interest in dynamic presentation formats such as the eLightning sessions. Many address the ways that Earth and space science informs and improves society, which is particularly appropriate given the location of this year’s meeting. Others showcase the history, diversity and transdisciplinary nature of Earth and space science, and explore how it will evolve over the next 100 years, contributing to an exciting launch for AGU’s Centennial.
Sessions are just the first step in planning for the 2018 meeting, which will also include new experiences and events that showcase diverse science of the Fall Meeting, and take full advantage of the engaging setting Washington, D.C. provides including the opportunity for connections to the U.S. and international policy communities, as well as the public. An example of this exciting new programming is a special evening AGU will host at several Smithsonian museums for attendees and their families.
Thank you again for making 2018 a banner year for the AGU Fall Meeting.
