New AGU Fall Meeting 2011 Timelines

AGU’s Fall Meeting is the premier event for Earth and space sciences, attracting the best and brightest geoscientists from around the world. Over the past decade, meeting attendance has grown six to eight percent each year. The 2010 Fall Meeting hosted 19,000 attendees, with nearly 6,000 attending from outside the U.S., and we expect a similar level of participation at the 2011 Fall Meeting.

Supporting the growing interest in the Fall Meeting and maintaining the high quality of AGU science and AGU’s reputation for excellent meetings necessitates adjustments to some key deadlines. Session proposal and abstract timelines for the 5-9 December 2011 Fall Meeting are:

* Session proposal submission: 25 February - 20 April (Proposal Deadline is 20 April)
* Abstract submission: 8 June - 4 August (Abstract Deadline is 4 August)
* Availability of the Meeting Program: week of 15 September

These new deadlines will ensure that AGU is able to meet the expectations of all meeting participants, while effectively managing the publications and other logistics deadlines. The AGU Meetings Committee and AGU staff are committed to improving the Fall Meeting and ensuring that it continues to be the premier meeting of geophysics. We encourage members to organize sessions, submit abstracts, and contact the Meetings Committee, Fall Meeting Program Committee, and work with their Section and Focus Groups to make the 2011 Fall Meeting the best ever.
