This month, we have announced changes to the EGU General Assembly 2019 schedule, which aim to give more time for all presentation types. Check our news announcement for more information. If you’d like to apply for funding to attend the meeting next year, make sure to submit your conference abstract by 1 December! In other news, we have opened applications to the EGU General Assembly 2019 mentoring programme, and are advertising a job opportunity for geoscientists with science communication experience to work at the meeting.

Also this month, we opened the call for applications for EGU Public Engagement Grants, and have announced the creation of the EGU Working Group on Diversity and Equality. In addition, we opened the EGU Autumn 2018 Elections for the next EGU Treasurer: you have until 30 November to cast your vote. We’ll be announcing the results early next week.
