Division on Geosciences Instrumentation and Data Systems

President: Lara Pajewski (gi@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Francesco Soldovieri (soldovieri.f@irea.cnr.it)

Opposed to other divisions concentrating on specific fields of geosciences, this division intends to be a forum for developments in instrumentation, technology, methods and data handling used in any field of the various geosciences. By promoting the discussion between specialists from widely diverse fields, advances in instrumentation made in one field might be utilized in other areas also and encourage co-operation, thereby saving separate development work and making new approaches possible, which otherwise might still have to wait for years or even decades.

As nearly every other field of geosciences is related to one or the other instrumentation strategy, many of the GI-sessions are co-organized with sessions from other divisions. Potential contributors to any session are encouraged to evaluate the benefits of a multi-disciplinary discussion versus the specific interest of the own target group.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

“They say there’s nothing more complex than the human brain. They haven’t worked in Brussels, have they?” Read all about EGU’s recent science-policy pairing scheme and sign up for EGU's database of expertise to receive emails about opportunities focussed on integrating science and policy.

This month we announced that EGU will contribute EUR 105,000 to help fund 17 training schools and conferences, including two Galileo Conferences, in 2020.

Fellowships: Tim Kalvelage, Cécile Dumas and Aisling Irwin are the recipients of this year's EGU Science Journalism Fellowships.

From a new audio accessibility system and more legible, browser-based programme to pronoun buttons and a diversity and pride reception, EGU is implementing extensive measures to foster an inclusive and respectful environment at the annual General Assembly. These include free, on-site childcare, for which the registration opens on 9 March at 13:00 CET and closes when filled - so be sure to sign up early.

The meeting programme for the EGU General Assembly 2020 (3–8 May, Vienna) will be published next week! With more than 1000 scientific sessions, debates, short courses and networking events scheduled, as well as two artists in residence - Lego photographer Stacy Phillips and digital artist Priyanka Das Rajkakati - it promises to be a diverse and exciting conference again this year. Please register by 31 March to qualify for the early registration rates.
