Join us for Fall Meeting 2020

Fall Meeting is the largest gathering of Earth and space scientists in the world. Back in San Francisco after celebrating our Centennial, Fall Meeting 2020 aims to bring a diverse and relevant set of topics to help move Earth and space science forward.

It all starts with the innovative and dynamic session proposals from AGU’s community. Session submissions are open now. We encourage sessions with diverse groups of conveners who can work together to broaden participation. Visit our session submission guidelines to get started.

Session proposals are open!

Due to COVID-19, AGU has extended the deadline to submit a Fall Meeting session, town hall, workshop and innovative session proposal until Thursday, 23 April 2020.
