EGU General Assembly 2016 Active Planet, by Kai Boggild. Find geoscience images (and upload yours!) at


From 17 to 22 April in Vienna, we celebrated an Active Planet at the 2016 EGU General Assembly, the largest and most successful EGU conference to date. The meeting hosted 13,650 scientists from 109 countries, with over 50% of participants being early career scientists (under the age of 35 years). Delegates presented and discussed their science in about 5,000 oral presentations, over 10,000 posters, and almost 1000 PICO presentations. A heartfelt thank you from the EGU to all participants and exhibitors, and all those involved in organising the meeting: conveners, everyone in the EGU Programme Committee and at Copernicus Meetings, as well as the conference assistants and EGU office staff. You can help us improve the conference, both by uploading your presentation and by leaving your feedback to make sure the 2017 General Assembly (23–28 April, Vienna) is even better.

Finally, it is with a heavy heart that we inform EGU members of the passing of our former treasurer Roland Schlich, who died yesterday (28 April) of illness.
