The EGU General Assembly 2020, the largest geosciences meeting in Europe, will bring together thousands of geoscientists from all over the world into one conference covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. It provides an opportunity for journalists and science communicators to talk to researchers, learn about new developments and find out about the latest discoveries in a wide variety of topic areas, including climate, space and planetary science missions, natural disasters and plastic pollution.

After the record-breaking 2019 meeting, with more than 16,000 participants and 16,250 scientific presentations, we anticipate another large conference with a packed programme in 2020. The General Assembly 2020 will take place at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 3 to 8 May. Media registration to the meeting is available free of charge to journalists, freelance science writers and public information officers from Europe and around the world. For more information, please see the eligibility requirements on the registration page.

The EGU operates a Press Centre located by Foyer F on the yellow level 0 (ground floor) of the Austria Center Vienna, which includes a working space for journalists and a press conference room. Media registration provides access to the Press Centre and other meeting rooms and includes a public transportation ticket. Media participants also have access to high-speed internet (LAN and WLAN), quiet interview rooms equipped with noise-reduction material for interviews, and complimentary breakfast, lunch, coffee and refreshments at the Press Centre.

If you are interested in attending the meeting, we encourage you to register well in advance.
