EGU 2012 General Assembly: Meeting programme online, preliminary press conference topics

14.03.2012
The programme for the General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), a meeting with over 10,000 scientists that covers all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences, is now online. Press conferences will include presentations on Habitable Worlds in the Solar System and Climate Change (featuring Michael E. Mann), among other topics. The event will be held on 22–27 April 2012 at the Austria Center Vienna.
*Meeting programme online*
All sessions (over 700) and abstracts (over 14,000) are now available from the EGU 2012 website and fully searchable. You can access the programme at http://www.egu2012.eu/programme/how_to_access_the_programme.html.

Media participants to the conference may use the meeting programme to search for abstracts or sessions they find particularly interesting. The programme is searchable by name of a scientist, keywords (e.g., volcano, Fukushima, Mars), session topic (e.g., Solar-Terrestrial Sciences, Natural Hazards), and other parameters. You may also select single contributions or complete sessions from the meeting programme to generate your personal programme.

*Preliminary press conference topics*
We are planning 10 to 12 press conferences at the EGU General Assembly, which will take place at the press centre located on the Yellow Level (Ground Floor) of the Austria Center Vienna. Preliminary topics to be presented to journalists include:
*Renewable energies
*Glaciers & ice caps and sea-level rise
*Habitable worlds in the Solar System
*Tsunami detection and early warning
*Critical mineral resources
*Geosciences and health
*Flood disasters: impacts and forecasting
*Aftermath of the March 2011 Japan earthquake
*Climate sensitivity and climate change (featuring EGU medalists Michael E. Mann and Michael Gill)

*And more!

Please note that the list above is subject to change. A subsequent media advisory will include a full schedule of press conferences with a list of speakers and short summary of the topics covered in each conference.

*Media registration*
Members of the media and public information officers are invited to register online (free of charge) at http://media.egu2012.eu/registration. The online list of journalist and PIOs who have registered already is available at http://media.egu2012.eu/registration/who-is-coming/.

Online (pre-)registration will be available until Thursday 29 March. The advance registration assures that your badge will be waiting for you on your arrival to the Austria Center Vienna, giving you access to the press centre and other meeting rooms. You may also register on-site during the meeting.

Further information about media services at the General Assembly is available from http://media.egu2012.eu/.

For information on accommodation and travel, please refer to http://www.egu2012.eu/accommodation.html and http://www.egu2012.eu/venue.html, respectively.

Im Focus: Goodbye, silicon? On the way to new electronic materials with metal-organic networks

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz (Germany) together with scientists from Dresden, Leipzig, Sofia (Bulgaria) and Madrid (Spain) have now developed and characterized a novel, metal-organic material which displays electrical properties mimicking those of highly crystalline silicon. The material which can easily be fabricated at room temperature could serve as a replacement for expensive conventional inorganic materials used in optoelectronics.

Silicon, a so called semiconductor, is currently widely employed for the development of components such as solar cells, LEDs or computer chips. High purity...

Im Focus: Storage & Transport of highly volatile Gases made safer & cheaper by the use of “Kinetic Trapping"

Augsburg chemists present a new technology for compressing, storing and transporting highly volatile gases in porous frameworks/New prospects for gas-powered vehicles

Storage of highly volatile gases has always been a major technological challenge, not least for use in the automotive sector, for, for example, methane or...

Im Focus: Disrupting crystalline order to restore superfluidity

When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.

We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
