Science communicators from around the world can now sign up for free media registration for vEGU21: Gather Online. This virtual edition of the European Geosciences Union’s annual meeting will take place from 19–30 April, with the majority of scientific sessions and press conferences to be held from 26-30 April.

vEGU21 will provide opportunities for journalists and 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.

EGU General Assemblies allow journalists to learn about new developments in a wide variety of fields, such as planetary exploration, water resources, Earth observation, polar science, climate change, pollution, and natural hazards. Some of the meeting’s most newsworthy scientific advances will be presented to journalists at press conferences, to be announced in early April.

The preliminary programme for the meeting includes hundreds of scientific sessions. Individual abstracts will be viewable beginning in early March.
