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
The meeting programme for the EGU 2018 General Assembly (8–13 April, Vienna) is now published online. With close to 18,000 abstracts and around 950 scientific sessions, debates, short courses and side events, it promises to be a very exciting meeting. If you have not yet registered, please do so by 1 March to get reduced registration rates.
In parallel with the publication of the General Assembly programme, the EGU has also issued a statement stressing that all scientific presentations at its annual meeting have equal importance, independent of format.
In addition to EGU conference news, we also advertised a series of vacancies this month. Would you like to help EGU further its outreach, education and early-career-scientist (ECS) programmes? The EGU Outreach Committee is looking for a new chair and new members, the Committee on Education is seeking a new chair, and a number of divisions are searching for new ECS representatives.
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).
