The European Geophysical Union (EGU) General Assembly brings together researchers from all over the world in a meeting covering all disciplines of earth, space, and planetary sciences. IIASA researchers will present a variety of research during oral and poster presentations at the meeting. 


IIASA information booth:  IIASA representatives will host a booth at the meeting exhibition hall - come by to learn more about IIASA, our research, and opportunities for scientists, postdoctoral fellows, and PhD students at the Institute.  Ground floor, booth #44.

Media Information: IIASA researchers are available to talk to the media during the conference, and Water program researcher Yusuke Satoh will also participate in a press conference related to his work on climate change, droughts, and water resources. More information for journalists will be available in early April on the IIASA Media Center Web page.
