NSG Fall meeting sessions

Showcase your research to an international audience, debate with your peers, and find new ways to create a positive impact on society—only at Fall Meeting. This is the largest and most influential event dedicated to advancing Earth and space science. Don’t miss your opportunity to accelerate your career. And if you submit early you’ll have a chance to win a US$100 gift card! Early Abstract Submission Deadline: 26 July, 11:59 P.M. ET

Submit abstracts here.

Encourage your students to check the OSPA box on the special programs page indicating their interest in participating in the Outstanding Student Paper Award (OSPA). Last year, over 3,000 students chose to participate and received valuable feedback on their presentation and research skills. Not a student? OSPA needs member volunteers to help judge student posters. Last year there were over 9,000 judge slots needing to be filled. Give back to the student community by volunteering as an OSPA judge. Non-student members can also check the OSPA box to indicate their interest in volunteering.

Encourage your students to check the mentoring box on the special programs page indicating their interest in participating in AGU’s Mentoring Programs. Fall Meeting offers opportunities for mentors and mentees alike in the Undergraduate Mentoring Program (UMP), Career and Research Advice Mentorship (CRAM), and Sharing Science Mentoring Program.
