In just a couple of days, the meeting programme for the EGU 2017 General Assembly (23–28 April, Vienna) will be published online. If you have an abstract accepted to the meeting, you should receive your letter of schedule soon, too. Before then, make sure you enter the EGU Photo Competition (deadline 1 March) for a chance to win a free registration to next year's General Assembly.
For the first time, the EGU is offering a mentoring programme for novice conference attendees at its annual General Assembly to connect them with more experienced participants. The programme promises to be a rewarding experience for both mentees and mentors, so do consider signing up if you are either an early career scientist (ECS) or would like to mentor first timers!
For those interested in helping further the EGU outreach and ECS programmes, apply to be an ECS representative or be part of the EGU Outreach Committee. If you'd like to organise an EGU Galileo Conference, a meeting addressing a well-focused, cutting-edge topic at the frontier of geosciences research, this is your last chance to apply for funding from the EGU (deadline 28 February).
