Session Proposal Overview

Session and tutorial talk proposals are no longer being accepted. Thank you to all those who submitted.

Fall Meeting 2018 is a unique opportunity to highlight the latest discoveries, insights and advances for our global community of Earth and space scientists, and at the same time to raise appreciation of the value and impact of our science among world leaders in Washington D.C.

We invite proposals that reflect on progress within and across the myriad fields that make up our science, that explore emerging fields and reveal how our science is continually evolving.

The 2018 meeting also marks the beginning of AGU’s Centennial in 2019, a time to reflect on the meaning of a century of discovery, and to look ahead to the essential contributions that our science will make to understanding our world, informing policy decisions, sparking innovation and protecting the health and welfare of people everywhere.

NEW THIS YEAR: The newly formed GeoHealth Section will offer sessions at Fall Meeting. Tutorial Talks that improve learning and spark new ways of approaching today’s problems will also be held.
