Earlier this month, we hosted a record-breaking number of participants (over 15,000) at our annual EGU General Assembly in Vienna. The meeting included over 17,000 poster, oral and PICO presentations in over 650 sessions, as well as a number of popular short courses and side events. We are grateful to all participants, including conveners, the EGU Programme Committee, Copernicus Meetings, conference assistants, and ACV and EGU office staff, for making the meeting a success.

If you participated in the meeting, we especially welcome your suggestions and feedback (deadline: 3 June), which will be instrumental in ensuring an even more successful General Assembly in 2019 (7–12 April, Vienna).

Finally, we would like to remind you that we are currently accepting nominations for the 2019 EGU awards and medals. To promote the best deserving geoscientists from around the world and increase diversity in the group of EGU awardees and medallists, we encourage the EGU membership to consider gender, geographical, and cultural balance when nominating outstanding Earth, planetary and space scientists at various career stages. Please consider submitting a nomination by 15 June.
