Hybrid Meeting Overview

AGU Fall Meeting 2021 will be held in-person in New Orleans, Louisiana as well as online everywhere from 13-17 December.

#AGU21 is optimizing both in-person and worldwide online participation so that attendees will have numerous opportunities for interactions that person-to-person meetings allow, from networking opportunities, impromptu live discussions, field trips, workshops and side-meetings as well as the very popular exhibit hall.

Additional benefits of an in-person and online meeting include:

  • A broader worldwide audience, including increased attendance options for students.
  • Ease of online attendance for professionals of organizations in other sectors beyond Earth and space sciences.
  • A decreased carbon footprint.
  • Most scientific sessions will be recorded and available on-demand after #AGU21 so people can (re)watch at their convenience.

AGU20 Digital Poster Hall

#AGU21 is taking the best of #AGU20, other past events and the latest tools and technologies to create a customizable online and/or in-person experience to foster learning, sharing and networking with others.

Based on feedback from #AGU20, we will continue to offer:

  1. Expanded time for discussion and interaction in sessions and breaks.
  2. Online and on-demand availability of full content and sessions.
  3. Shorter presentations followed by deeper access to and discussion with authors.
  4. Online participation and engagement and optimize in-person experience.
  5. Opportunities for poster presenters to engage in an oral or eLightning format session and present highlights.
