Share Your Science—Fall Meeting Public Affairs Sessions

21 July 2015
AGU Science Policy Alert 15-12

Planning for the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting, 14-18 December, is well under way, and the deadline for abstract submissions is fast approaching. The deadline for submitting an abstract is 5 August at 11:59 P.M. EDT. The first author of the abstract must be an AGU member with their 2015 membership paid.

If you are interested in the policy ramifications of your science, or if you already conduct research at the science-policy interface, we strongly encourage you to consider submitting an abstract to a Public Affairs (PA) session.

Authors who want to submit a scientific abstract to another Section or Focus Group for Fall Meeting may also submit an additional abstract to a PA or Education and Human Resources (ED) session. You can browse the many interesting sessions, including 25 confirmed PA sessions, using the Fall Meeting session search. We especially encourage members of the AGU Social Impacts and Policy Sciences (SIPS) Focus Group to submit abstracts for PA sessions.

A few session highlights:

PA011: Innovation in the Geosciences: When Basic Research Leads to Commercial Payoffs

PA014: Merging Left and Right Brains: At the Intersection of Creativity and Geoscience

PA021: The Many Sides of Sharing Science: A How-To

Or check out the other 22 PA sessions, plus 6 co-organized sessions that incorporate PA and other Section or Focus Groups, here.

Please consider submitting an abstract today!
