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. This year, AGU is expanding on the interactive electronic posters, 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 also be hosted in a virtual library for your review. This is part of a continued effort by AGU to experiment with a medium that could make remote presentations feasible for future meetings.

Enjoy a higher level of interaction with presenters. Panels consist of up to eight (8) individuals who will respond to questions from a moderator and audience. Panels could consist of full panels, include a 5-minute talk from each panelist, or have the opportunity for extended Q&A alongside other attendees.
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.
