In place of the annual in-person General Assembly in Vienna, EGU will host vEGU21: Gather Online (#vEGU21) from 19–30 April. vEGU21 will provide opportunities for science writers from around the world to learn about the latest research and discoveries in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences and engage with the global geoscience community via both video and live text-chats. The vEGU21 meeting programme includes nearly 14,000 abstracts, and the vast majority of the scientific sessions will be held from 26-30 April.

Eligible members of the media, public information officers, and science bloggers are invited to register for the meeting free of charge (conditions apply). The events most likely to be of interest to journalists will include the six virtual press conferences, the keynote Union Symposia and Great Debates, and the “display” presentation materials uploaded to scientific sessions. These can be found in the meeting programme by selecting a Programme Group (such as Hydrological Sciences), closing the search window, and then selecting a session from the resulting list. Alternatively, you can enter specific terms in the search box.
