The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
The General Assembly 2015 is held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 12 – 17 April 2015. The assembly is open to the scientists of all nations.
During the General Assembly, Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PYRN) together with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) will be organizing a short course about "The future of permafrost in a climate-changing world"
The course is open for Bachelor, Master, PhD students and post-docs and the goals are: 1) to equip young researchers with a multidisciplinary understanding of the role of permafrost in the climate system; 2) to strengthen international collaboration of early career researchers; and 3) to enable the participants to put their research into a larger context. The objective of the course is to revise recent research that concerns permafrost in a changing climate. Participants will learn about the effect of permafrost development and degradation in polar and mountain regions, and its impact on infrastructures and ecosystems under climate warming scenarios.


Journalists, freelance science writers, and public information officers may sign up for complimentary media registration. Online pre-registration is now closed. On-site registration is available in the main registration area of the Austria Center Vienna during the opening hours of the conference office.
