The deadline to nominate brilliant scientists for the EGU 2019 awards and medals is this month, on the 15th. To 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. Other important dates to keep in mind are 3 June, the deadline for submitting your feedback on the EGU 2018 General Assembly, and 18 June, the deadline for presenting authors at the meeting to submit their presentations to our online repository. Also of highlight is the call for proposals for training schools and conference series, opening on Friday (check then). We will be launching two new EGU conference series, named in honour of two female scientists.
