We are pleased to announce that Fall Meeting 2022 will take place in Chicago, Ill., and Fall Meeting 2024 will take place in Washington, D.C. Read more about the new rotation schedule.
AGU is creating a new digital platform and we invite you to help test, shape and guide its development.
In addition to joining your 24,000+ fellow scientists in showing the world what science stands for at Fall Meeting, AGU wants to make sure you have ample opportunities to give your mind a well-deserved break.
Fall Meeting is only days away, and we need to talk about your flair. So, what kinds of buttons will you be seeing at Fall Meeting? Here’s a handy guide to some of the flair people will be rocking at Fall Meeting.
Fall Meeting will be the first large-scale public event since the report’s release, and we invite attendees to take advantage of the myriad opportunities to learn more about the report, ask questions, and network with report authors and contributors.
We’ve put together a helpful list of locations to help Fall Meeting attendees explore all that D.C. has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a place to eat, museums to visit, a geologic tour of the National Mall, or just a cup of coffee, we want to help you make the most of your visit to Washington, D.C.
Thursday, 13 Dec 10:20 – 12:20
In this late-breaking Union Session panelists will discuss the role of the international scientific community in response to recent trends towards nationalism around the globe and its implications for science. Read more
Science is a part of everyone’s lives and the science storytelling organization The Story Collider believes that everyone has a story about how science has affected them. This year at Fall Meeting, The Story Collider will host a storytelling event where AGU scientists (and a science reporter) will tell true, personal stories about science, live on stage.
AGU Fall Meeting is the highlight of the year for many Earth and space scientists but did you know that it is also one of the largest gatherings of science journalists?
Why Should I Volunteer as a Judge?
The Outstanding Student Presentation Award (OSPA) program began at Fall Meeting in 1999 and has been growing ever since. This year, OSPA will facilitate nearly 3,200 student presenters. OSPA was created to provide feedback to student presenters and recognize top-ranking students in each section . To ensure that all rankings are evenhanded and impartial, each OSPA presentation must be evaluated by three anonymous judges. This means that nearly 9,600 volunteer judges are needed, and we’re asking for your help. In as little as 1 hour during Fall Meeting, you can evaluate three OSPA presentations.
AGU recently updated our Photography and Social Media Guidelines. Beginning with Fall Meeting 2018, photography for personal use is permitted throughout AGU meeting spaces – including scientific sessions – unless the presenter has exercised the option to be excluded.
We now know that the Milky Way galaxy is teeming with billions of planets, yet astronomers can typically measure only a few key properties for each of these “exoplanets” orbiting distant stars. In contrast, planetary scientists have gathered billions of measurements of the very few planets we have in our own Solar System. To establish a broad and unified view of Earth, the Solar System, and exoplanets, we need to share expertise across many different communities. Some sessions at this Fall Meeting represent a new collaboration between the AGU and the American Astronomical Society (AAS), recognizing how much we have to learn from each other. Come look through a new lens and see what we’ve discovered about planets both near and far!
In a world where most people cannot name a living scientist and science has been increasingly politicized, it’s important for scientists to be able to connect their science with society. This year at Fall Meeting, AGU is excited to have spaces dedicated to both science communication and outreach, as well as science policy, that will help you connect science to general non-scientists, journalists, policymakers, and beyond…we hope to see you there!
Over the past few years, AGU has been making great strides in reducing our carbon footprint and opting for a more sustainable approach to how we work, where we work, and how our programs operate, including the Fall Meeting.
Our understanding of Earth and Space science is forever changing. However, our Earth and space scientists have patterns of behavior that we can predict and this week, more than 25,000 of them from around the world paused to gather data, write conclusions, and submit an abstract to AGU for the Fall Meeting in Washington, DC, December 10-14, 2018. By doing this, by standing for science, they created the largest set of abstracts ever submitted to AGU, almost 26,000.
As we near the 1 August abstract submission, I’d like to highlight the first formal scientific program presented by AGU’s new GeoHealth section. For Fall Meeting 2018, we are waiving the “first-author rule” for GeoHealth sessions, providing an opportunity for you to submit to GeoHealth as well as one other session…
It’s almost August so that means many of you are working to finalize your research and submit your abstracts. At AGU, we’re preparing to welcome almost 25,000 of you to Washington, DC in December. Our preparations include making sure that we have a place for you to stay while you attend the meeting. Recently we’ve seen comments on social media about how and why AGU makes these arrangements…
The abstract submission site is now open. Submit by 25 July, 11:59 P.M. EDT to be eligible for a $100.00 USD gift card.
If you are contacted by any company other than SPARGO offering housing in Washington, D.C., please note that these companies are not authorized to represent AGU nor do they have access to officially contracted 2018 AGU Fall Meeting room blocks or rates in Washington D.C. Please beware! These unauthorized companies often don’t deliver on promises to customers…
Want to provide opportunities not only for learning, but also spark ideas for a new way to approach a problem or new collaborations?
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…
There was a lot for 2017 Fall Meeting attendees to discover in New Orleans…
