European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2011, Wien, 3. – 8. April 2011

17.02.2011
Online registration for journalists, science writers and public information officers is possible until 18 March 2011. Media registration is also possible onsite during opening hours of the conference office.

The 2011 General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union will take place from 3 April to 8 April in Vienna, Austria.

The EGU General Assembly 2010 will bring together around 10,000 geoscientists from all over Europe and the rest of the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences.

Major EGU 2011 topics and debates are related to our natural environment and its current threats: natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes and wildfires.Other topics include energy, resources, weather and climate.

Some of these topics, notably past, present and future of the climate, the oceans and ice sheets, will be discussed during the Union Symposium 1 “A Planet under Pressure” with James Zachos, Eric Rignot and Hervé Le Treut as principal speakers.

Union Symposium 3 focuses on the question “How Science Can Aid Society in Tackling Emerging Risks”.

This year’s Great Debate asks “What can be done about Europe’s alarming dependence on mineral imports?”

We are working to put together an attractive press conference programme. It is still preliminary, but we will probably have briefings about Ocean Acidification, Oxygen Depletion of the Oceans (“triple trouble”), Ice Sheets and Sea Level Rise, Recent Large Earthquakes and Tsunamis, Ocean Dynamics and Oil Spills. We will give out more information as our programme evolves. So stay tuned.

Media Registration

Science writers and public information officers are welcome to attend this conference and to register in advance by 18 March 2011 at the latest by completing and returning the "Press-Pre-Registration Form". Media registration at the meeting during the opening hours of the conference office is also possible. Media registration is free-of-charge.

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
