The 2018 Agu Fall Meeting will be held, for the first time, in Washington D.C., from 10th to 14th December.
This year’s meeting will focus on ethics, diversity, inclusion and, more broadly, on exploration of the many dimensions of science’s impact on society; it will also be a special edition, for the meeting itself serves as the launch of the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) centennial. The aim of the event is to prepare the global Earth and Space science community to address the next scientific challenges by making a commitment to creating ethical, inclusive and diverse work environments.
To celebrate the 100 years of activity of the Union, special events, sessions, and engagement opportunities are planned. Among them, there will be:
– Thematic poster sessions – specific topics fall within the broad categories: Science Nexus, Earth Interior, Earth Covering and Beyond Earth;
– a wide range of networking opportunities;
– scientific workshops;
– tutorial talks;
– public events around Washington D.C.;
– field trips to locations of geological interest.
Finally, to mark the official start of AGU’S Centennial, on the last day of the meeting there will be the Centennial Plenary, where a series of presentations will set the basis for a discussion about the future of Earth and Space science.
