Townhall and Splinter Meetings at EGU 2014

19 Nov

In addition to the wealth of scientific sessions at the General Assembly (27 April – 2 May 2014), there is also the option to attend other meetings during EGU 2014. These include Townhall and Splinter Meetings, which are organised by conference participants. 

Townhall Meetings

Townhall Meetings are meetings open for all participants in the conference. During these meetings new initiatives or decisions are announced to a larger audience following an open discussion on the matter.

Anyone may organise a Townhall Meeting, subject to approval by the Programme Committee chair. Townhall Meetings will be scheduled from Monday to Friday from 19:00 to 20:00 in the conference centre’s lecture rooms. Applications should be sent to the Programme Committee chair using the Townhall Meeting Request Form. Upon acceptance, the respective meeting will appear in the Townhall Meetings Programme as a regular session.

Further information on Townhall Meetings is available on the EGU 2014 website.

Splinter Meetings

Splinter Meetings can also be organised by participants during the course of the conference and they can be public or by invitation only. To request a Splinter meeting, please complete the online Splinter Meeting Request Form. Splinter Meeting rooms are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please see the Splinter Meeting Overview to determine room availability before submitting your request.

Note, that these splinter meeting rooms are not available for booking as an extension of a session or a Poster Summary Discussion (PSD). Such requests will automatically be withdrawn. Instead, conveners can request a PSD room in their Session Organising Tool SOII from 27 – 30 January 2014.

Splinter Meetings
Participants at the General Assembly can organise side meetings during the course of the General Assembly. If the meeting is non-commercial in purpose, organisers can reserve two successive time blocks in one of the six available Splinter Meeting rooms free of charge. For commercial meetings (e.g. editorial board meetings) these rooms can be booked at a cost. In both cases, all Splinter Meeting participants are required to be registered at the conference. Interested parties should check the Splinter Meetings page on the General Assembly website for more information on the rooms and time blocks available, as well as for access to the request form.
