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.

An international research team including astronomers from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has combined radio telescopes from five continents to prove the existence of a narrow stream of material, a so-called jet, emerging from the only gravitational wave event involving two neutron stars observed so far. With its high sensitivity and excellent performance, the 100-m radio telescope in Effelsberg played an important role in the observations.
In August 2017, two neutron stars were observed colliding, producing gravitational waves that were detected by the American LIGO and European Virgo detectors....
Up to now, OLEDs have been used exclusively as a novel lighting technology for use in luminaires and lamps. However, flexible organic technology can offer much more: as an active lighting surface, it can be combined with a wide variety of materials, not just to modify but to revolutionize the functionality and design of countless existing products. To exemplify this, the Fraunhofer FEP together with the company EMDE development of light GmbH will be presenting hybrid flexible OLEDs integrated into textile designs within the EU-funded project PI-SCALE for the first time at LOPEC (March 19-21, 2019 in Munich, Germany) as examples of some of the many possible applications.
The Fraunhofer FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, has long been involved in the development of...
For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.
The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...
