The meeting programme for the EGU 2018 General Assembly (8–13 April, Vienna) is now published online. With close to 18,000 abstracts and around 950 scientific sessions, debates, short courses and side events, it promises to be a very exciting meeting. If you have not yet registered, please do so by 1 March to get reduced registration rates.

In parallel with the publication of the General Assembly programme, the EGU has also issued a statement stressing that all scientific presentations at its annual meeting have equal importance, independent of format.

In addition to EGU conference news, we also advertised a series of vacancies this month. Would you like to help EGU further its outreach, education and early-career-scientist (ECS) programmes? The EGU Outreach Committee is looking for a new chair and new members, the Committee on Education is seeking a new chair, and a number of divisions are searching for new ECS representatives.
