Welcome to EGU’s 2015 Online Services for the Media

The EGU General Assembly 2015 brings together some 12,000 geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. It provides an opportunity for journalists and science writers to learn about new developments in a variety of topics, including climate change, recent space and planetary science missions, natural disasters, ocean acidification, rare-earth minerals, ice loss and sea-level rise, and to talk to researchers.

The 2015 Assembly is taking place at the Austria Center Vienna in Vienna, Austria, from 12 to 17 April.

Media registration to the meeting is available to journalists, freelance science writers and public information officers of all nations free of charge. Please see eligibility requirement in the Registration page.

The EGU operates a Press Centre located on the Yellow Level (Ground Floor) of the Austria Center Vienna, which includes a working space for journalists and a press conference room. Quiet side rooms for interviews are also available.
