The European Geosciences Union 2011 General Assembly has an official blog (excuse the appearance it’s in the process of being designed) which can be found at here.
The public call for sessions for the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2011 has been issued. THE EGU GA 2011 will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) from 3 April 2011 to 8 April 2011. An email has been sent by Bruce D. Malamud (King’s College London) as Chair, EGU General Assembly 2011 Programme Committee Chair along with Martin Rasmussen & Katja Gaenger of Copernicus Meetings. The details are below,
You are invited to take an active part in organizing the scientific programme of the conference. You can do this by visiting the Provisional Programme section of the EGU 2011 website.
Please suggest (i) new sessions with conveners and description and (ii) modifications to the skeleton programme sessions. The latter were compiled by the respective EGU Programme Group Chair and Officers based on community input at the last business meetings or later.
When making suggested changes/additions to the programme, as a general guideline the following are encouraged: (i) a minimum of three active conveners from multiple countries and institutes, (ii) the inclusion of young scientists, (iii) gender diversity. Please check with all of the suggested conveners that they agree to take part in the proposed session.
When making suggestions, explore the Programme Groups (PGs) and after studying those sessions that already exist, put your proposal into the PG that is most closely aligned with the proposed session’s subject area. If the subject area of your proposal is strongly aligned with two or more PGs, co-organization is possible and encouraged between PGs. Only put your session proposal into ONE PG, and you will be able to indicate PGs that you believe should be approached for co-organization.
If you have questions about the appropriateness of a specific session topic, please contact the Programme Group Chair and/or the Officers for the specific EGU2011 Programme Group.
The EGU2011 Programme Committee will take into account all suggested new sessions and modifications to existing sessions, and use these to compile the final Session Programme as the basis for the Call-for-Papers. Then, from 20 Oct 2010 to 10 Jan 2011, conveners of approved sessions will be asked to actively promote their sessions and the public will be invited to submit their Abstracts. This will be announced by separate email.
Please inform your colleagues about these opportunities. We look forward to receiving your suggestions. Thank you very much in advance!
In case any questions arise, please contact EGU2011 at Copernicus.
Participants of the EGU GA 2010 should have received an email including a link to the EGU GA 2010 Feedback Questionnaire.
Last year (2009), the GA feedback form asked 19 questions. 1,549 responses were received which helped make many important decisions for the EGU GA 2010 and general EGU council decisions. This year, EGU GA participants are being asked to take 5-10 minutes of time to complete the short questionnaire as your input is important in shaping of the EGU GA 2011, to be held 03–08 April 2011, Vienna, Austria.
Shortly a very short questionnaire will be available regarding Social Media activities specifically.
