Try Something New!
This year, go beyond the typical poster session. From interactive panels, to digital eLightning stations, to high-speed presentation formats, Fall Meeting provides you with the opportunity to experience science however you learn best. Session conveners will have the opportunity to propose an alternate session format during submission and all proposals will be reviewed by the Fall Meeting Program Committee.
Science isn’t all about printed posters and dark oral session rooms. AGU is experimenting with interactive electronic posters, called eLightning Presentations, to encourage more in-depth discussions. eLightning sessions help you engage with science like never before. They utilize large touch screen displays to showcase research, data visualizations, videos, and animations in real-time.
After Fall Meeting these presentations will be hosted in a virtual library for your review. View the 2017 eLightning Presentation Gallery
Get up to speed on the latest scientific findings. Sessions will feature more presenters with shorter presentation times. Some examples could include sessions with 15 presenters giving a 5-minute talk, with 3-minute Q&A or consist of 12 presenters giving 8-minute talks followed by a 30-minute panel discussion.
Enjoy a higher level of interaction with presenters. Approved and accepted panels will consist of up to eight (8) individuals who will respond to questions from a moderator and audience. Approved panels will be exempt from the first author limitation and could consist of a full panel of invited authors or a mix of invited and contributed authors. Panels can be scheduled to include a 5-minute introductory talk from each panelist or allow for the opportunity for extended Q&A alongside other attendees.
