Town Hall Proposals

Town Hall Submission Instructions

The deadline for submitting town hall proposals was October 13, 2021.

Town halls, open to all meeting attendees, are best for collecting feedback or raising awareness for individuals from government agencies, academic programs, special projects and other focused interest groups via presentation, roundtable or a panel discussion.

Town halls will be one-hour in length and focused on topics that do not compete with or duplicate scientific sessions. They should NOT be submitted on topics that would be better suited as a session proposal. The Frontiers in Hydrology Meeting Program Committee will make the final decision on which proposals are accepted for FIHM.

Overall, town hall proposer should:

  • Proofread your proposal. You may submit more than one proposal, but ensure the topics are different and across disciplines. The proposal should not compete with or duplicate scientific sessions and used to primarily to gather input from the AGU community through audience participation. The Program Committee may request conveners revise the proposal title and/or description or merge proposals on similar topics.
  • Describe clear audience engagement/participation options during the one-hour session using a variety of formats (e.g., presentation, roundtable or panel discussion).
