The 2019 General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) provides an opportunity for journalists to find out about the latest research in the Earth, planetary and space sciences, and to talk to researchers from all over the world.
The meeting, the largest geosciences conference in Europe, is anticipated to bring together over 14,000 scientists in 2019.
It runs from 7 to 12 April and is taking place at the Austria Center Vienna, in Vienna, Austria.
The EGU General Assembly (https://www.egu2019.eu/) allows journalists to learn about new developments in a range of fields, such as planetary exploration, Earth observation, polar science, climate change, pollution and natural hazards.
The preliminary programme (https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org /EGU2019/sessionprogramme/) for the meeting includes hundreds of scientific sessions covering all areas of the Earth, planetary and space sciences.
Some of the meeting’s most newsworthy scientific advances will be presented to journalists at press conferences, to be announced in March.
Members of the media, public information officers and science bloggers (conditions apply) are now invited to register for the meeting online, free of charge at https://www.egu.eu/gamedia/2019/registration/eligibility/. Media registration gives access to the Press Centre, interview rooms, and other meeting rooms.
It also includes a public transportation ticket for central Vienna, valid from Monday to Friday. At the Press Centre, media participants have access to a working space with a dedicated wireless network and a press conference room. In addition, breakfast, lunch, coffee and refreshments are available free of charge.
Online registration is open until 14 March 2018. We strongly encourage all media participants to register in advance via this site to facilitate badge collection on arrival to the conference centre, the Austria Center Vienna (https://www.acv.at/). You may also register on-site during the meeting.
Further information about media services at the General Assembly is available at https://www.egu.eu/gamedia/2019/. Closer to the time of the meeting, this website will feature a full programme of press conferences, which will also be announced in later media advisories. For information on accommodation and travel, please refer to the appropriate sections of the main EGU General Assembly 2019 website (https://www.egu2019.eu/).
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is Europe’s premier geosciences union, dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences for the benefit of humanity, worldwide. It is a non-profit interdisciplinary learned association of scientists founded in 2002 with headquarters in Munich, Germany. The EGU publishes a number of diverse scientific journals, which use an innovative open access format, and organises a number of topical meetings, and education and outreach activities.
Its annual General Assembly is the largest and most prominent European geosciences event, attracting over 14,000 scientists from all over the world. The meeting’s sessions cover a wide range of topics, including volcanology, planetary exploration, the Earth’s internal structure and atmosphere, climate, energy, and resources. The EGU General Assembly 2019 is taking place in Vienna, Austria, from 7 to 12 April 2019. For information and press registration, please check https://www.egu.eu/gamedia, or follow the EGU on Twitter (@EuroGeosciences) and Facebook (European Geosciences Union).

Scientists have discovered the first synthetic material that becomes thicker - at the molecular level - as it is stretched.

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.
The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
Process engineers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have developed a method which allows the size and shape of nanoparticles in dispersions to be determined considerably quicker than ever before. Based on gold nanorods, they demonstrated how length and diameter distributions can be measured accurately in just one step instead of the complicated series of electron microscopic images which have been needed up until now. Nanoparticles from precious metals are used, for example, as catalysts and contrast agents for diagnosing cancer. The results have been published in the renowned journal Nature Communications (doi: 10.1038/s41467-018-07366-9).
Even in the Middle Ages, gold particles were used to create vibrant red and blue colours, for example to illustrate biblical scenes in stained glass windows....
