EGU 2019 meeting: Media registration now open

06.12.2018

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/).


MORE INFORMATION

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).

Im Focus: New studies increase confidence in NASA's measure of Earth's temperature

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.

The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...

Im Focus: The geometry of an electron determined for the first time

Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.

The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...

Im Focus: Self-repairing batteries

UTokyo engineers develop a way to create high-capacity long-life batteries

Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
