Present & Convene
General abstract submissions are closed.
Steps to Submitting an Abstract
The program committee will decide which session type your abstract may be assigned to. Familiarize yourself with the various types.
When you submit your abstract, you will need to indicate whether you will attend in-person in San Francisco or online-only. Abstracts will be scheduled by session conveners in oral (hybrid), eLightning (in-person only) or poster sessions based on this selection.
Please note, for poster sessions only: if you indicate that you are participating online and scheduled in a poster session by the sessions conveners, online poster sessions will be scheduled in late January, 2024. There is no hybrid option for poster sessions in San Francisco. You cannot change your presentation location after the abstract submission deadline has passed, please keep this in mind while making your location selection during abstract submission.
This processing fee is non-refundable.
Notifications of acceptance or rejection will be sent in early October. If you have any questions, please contact AGU.
Submitted abstracts may be edited as needed or transferred to another session until submissions close on 2 August (23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT). Do not withdraw a paid abstract submission to make edits.
