The EGU newsletter is a short email publication sent to EGU members on a monthly basis. It informs the Union membership about EGU events and activities, from highlighting papers published in our open access journals to providing news relating to EGU’s scientific divisions and meetings, including the General Assembly.
Since the distribution of a newsletter to all members is enshrined in the Union's by-laws, EGU members are subscribed to receive the monthly news emails when they first acquire their membership. Members can unsubscribe at any moment using the relevant link on the newsletter emails. Other geoscientists, members of the wider public or the media can subscribe online.
If you are an EGU member but have not received the emails, please let us know, and make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to prevent spam filters from blocking these emails.
Current issue of the EGU newsletter
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.
Readers can access all previous issues of the newsletter from the archive below. Up until the end of 2014, the newsletter was a quarterly magazine and information service (first called The Eggs and then GeoQ).
