With the EGU General Assembly just a couple of weeks away, this month we
offer tips and tricks on
getting to Vienna and navigating the city,
and on presenting your work at #EGU16.
We have also put together a list of
short courses, especially with early
career scientists (ECS) in mind, as well as
policy-relevant sessions. If this is your
first time at the EGU General Assembly, you may want to attend a short course
on Monday 18 April on
how to navigate the conference, and check
our first-timers’ guide. To play an
active role in celebrating the theme of the meeting, don’t forget to
contribute your own
My Active Planet photo,
which will be displayed on a large world map in the entrance hall. Once in
Vienna, don't miss the dedicated theme lectures, nor the EGU plenary, the
main meeting for bringing forward new ideas to the EGU. Keep checking the
EGU blogs for more General Assembly
highlights over the next few weeks.
In other news, this month the EGU became a
signatory of Open Access 2020,
an international initiative to promote the transition of today’s scholarly
journals from subscription to open access publishing. The move reinforces
EGU’s support for free and open access to knowledge.
