The EGU newsletter is a short email publication sent to EGU members on a monthly basis. It informs the Union membership about EGU events and activities, from highlighting papers published in our open access journals to providing news relating to EGU’s scientific divisions and meetings, including the General Assembly.
Since the distribution of a newsletter to all members is enshrined in the Union's by-laws, EGU members are subscribed to receive the monthly news emails when they first acquire their membership. Members can unsubscribe at any moment using the relevant link on the newsletter emails. Other geoscientists, members of the wider public or the media can subscribe online.
If you are an EGU member but have not received the emails, please let us know, and make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to prevent spam filters from blocking these emails.
Current issue of the EGU newsletter
Earlier in October, we announced the winners of the 2019 EGU awards and medals: 45 individuals who have made significant contributions to the Earth, planetary and space sciences and who will be honoured at the 2019 EGU General Assembly next April. We have also announced the winners of the Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Awards corresponding to the 2018 General Assembly, which you can find on our website. Congratulations to all!
This month, we also opened the call for abstracts for the EGU 2019 General Assembly. If you are interested in presenting your work in Vienna in April, make sure you submit your abstract by 10 January 2019, 13:00 CET. If you would like to apply for a Roland Schlich travel grant to attend the meeting, please submit your abstract no later than 1 December 2018. All 2019 EGU members will be able to submit abstracts to the 2019 meeting. With a few exceptions, only one abstract as a first author will be permitted. Please find more information on the EGU website.
In November, EGU 2018 members will have the opportunity to vote for the next EGU treasurer in the EGU Autumn elections. Check the elections page on our website for more information.
Readers can access all previous issues of the newsletter from the archive below. Up until the end of 2014, the newsletter was a quarterly magazine and information service (first called The Eggs and then GeoQ).
