We are looking forward to welcoming all participants to the 2020 EGU General Assembly on 3–8 May in Vienna. In addition to many exciting scientific sessions, the meeting will feature hundreds of short courses and networking events plus a packed exhibition hall!

The 2020 General Assembly will also continue a number of traditions, including the popular Imaggeo Photo Contest. You have until 15 February 2020 to enter your photos and videos for a chance to win fame and fortune – in the form of a free registration to next year’s General Assembly. Another tradition is the annual mentoring programme, which supports first-time conference attendees and helps them assemble their own professional networks. The programme, which only lasts for the duration of the General Assembly, depends on both mentors and mentees signing up; brief applications are due by 8 March 2020.

In case you missed them: here are the winners of the EGU's Best Blog Posts and the Best of Imaggeo 2019 competitions as well as the year’s Top 10 most-read blog posts. (The most read? Think Game of Thrones.)

Do you have a geoscience outreach project you’d like to develop? The call for funding is open until 15 February 2020 for EGU Public Engagement Grants. Winners receive 1500 EUR and one free registration to next year’s General Assembly.

If you’d like to organise a meeting addressing a focused, cutting-edge topic at the frontiers of geoscience research, you have until 29 February 2020 to propose an EGU Galileo Conference.
