How to convene a session at EGU24

The EGU General Assembly is comprised of numerous and diverse sessions, covering subjects from scientific to social. All of these are organised by community members. However, convening a session can be a little daunting, especially to those without experience such as first-time conveners and early career scientists. This webinar will provide key tips on convening sessions, inform on the guidance for EGU24, and answer audience queries.

Speaking in this webinar is Dan Evans, the Deputy Union-level Early Career Scientist Representative. Dan will draw on his own experience of convening at multiple General Assemblies, including how to keep your session running on time, how to introduce your speakers, and what is new for EGU’s hybrid posters. You will also hear about engaging with OSPP awards and early steps to submitting and convening sessions for EGU25.

The webinar will last for one hour and conclude with an audience Q&A. This webinar will be recorded and uploaded to the EGU YouTube Channel the following week:
